The returning Viva Brother have shared a second comeback single.
‘Womankind’ follows last month’s ‘Bastardo’ in signalling the ‘Second Chapter’ of the controversial indie bunch. The self-proclaimed ‘Gritpop’ band formed in 2010 and released their debut album, ‘Famous First Words in 2011’. Despite much hype from the band themselves, it only peaked at No.34 in the Official UK Albums Chart. Originally called Brother, the band were forced to change their name in June 2011 after losing a legal battle with an Australian Celtic band with the same moniker.
Speaking on new single ‘Womankind’, the band state: “We wrote this in solidarity with all the amazing woman [sic] that make this world turn.”

The guitar band previously announced their split on April 1 in 2012. Many feared it was an April Fool’s hoax, but the news was broken shortly after 12pm.
“You are invited to the second chapter,” wrote the band on Facebook last month as they signalled their return. “Celebrate with us at The Garage, London on November 30.”
The famously confident and outspoken band last made headlines when Newell mocked Tulisa for the flop of her debut album, ‘The Female Boss’. Their debut charted just one spot higher than her at .
“Congrats to Tulisa on her album getting to number 35,” he said. “Just think finalists, that could be you! (Even I did better than 35).”
