Kathleen Hanna disbanded the seminal riot-grrl band Bikini Kill in 1998, and began investigating a more pop-oriented sound with her solo project Julie Ruin. After releasing the Julie Ruin album in late 1998, Hanna put together a band to perform the songson tour, but before long the new group developed a sound and style of its own that became her new musical outlet. Dubbed Le Tigre, the group embraced catchy new-wave influenced melodies and low-fi electronics, but kept their feminist political ideology upfront in their lyrics, presenting a bold message in a way that was far more likely to appeal to the unconverted than Bikini Kill's more visceral approach. In 2004, the proudly independent Le Tigre surprised many of their fans when they signed to a majorlabel, Universal, but This Island proved to be one of the group's strongest and most cohesive albums. It also proved to be their last; the band quietly broke up after the tour following its release, and filmmaker Kerthy Fix followed the band as they played shows in ten countries and four continents between 2004 and 2005. Le Tigre: On Tour features performance footage from twenty different concerts, as well as interviews with Hanna, Johanna Fateman and J.D. Samson in which they discuss music, politics andfeminism, and behind the scenes images of the musicians having fun and interacting with fans. Le Tigre: On Tour was an official selection at the 2010 San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival.
