Pissed Jeans

New Pissed Jeans LP Available for Streaming

Sub Pop mainstays Pissed Jeans recently premiered their fifth album, Why Love Now, over at Noisey. The Philly via Allentown four-piece recruited the help of Sumerlands' Arthur Rizk and punk/no-wave legend Lydia Lunch to produce its latest. The band's innate ability to come together to create cathartic anthems spotlighting the soul-crushing, mundane aspects of life keeps us dialed in - that and the fact that Pissed Jeans is one of the best live bands out there. Why Love Now officially comes out this Friday, February 24, and Pissed Jeans will be hosting a couple of intimate hometown shows at Boot & Saddle on Friday, March 10 and PhilaMOCA on Saturday, March 10. You need to grab your tix immediately before both shows eventually sell out.

New Track: "The Bar Is Low" - Pissed Jeans

It's been a moment since we've gotten any new music from beloved noise-punks Pissed Jeans, since 2013's Honeys, in fact. Well, we are happy to learn that they just announced plans for the release of a new album, titled Why Love Now, to come out in the new year. The LP was co-produced by no-wave legend Lydia Lunch and Philly metalhead Arthur Rizk, and is scheduled for release on February 27, 2017 via Sub Pop. The band also shared the record's lead single "The Bar Is Low," which is about "how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead. It seems like every guy is getting outed, across every board of entertainment and politics and music." Unfortunately, it's bitterly appropriate for these trying times.


Come Taste Pissed Jeans & Tired Hands's Collaborative Brew at Ardmore Music Hall Oct. 16

When an independent craft brewpub opens it home base brewery & restaurant across from a music venue, it makes sense for the two to collaborate on doing some shows together, especially when that brewery happens to be owned by a bunch of hardcore music fans, who have worked closely with bands and named a number of their signature beers after albums and obscure songs. The first of what may very well be many joint shows between Ardmore Music Hall and Tired Hands happens tonight, and it will celebrate the newest band/beer collaboration from Tired Hands and Sub Pop noise-punk rockers Pissed Jeans. "People Person" is a pale ale with Belgian yeast and PA honey. It's named for the lead track of the group's Sub Pop debut Hope For Men, and was brewed by the band (whose drummer Sean McGuinness also bartends at the breweries Fermentaria location). People who attend will be able to try it alongside some of Tired Hands other signature brews, and remember to pick up a commemorative pint glass. The lineup will also feature the pulse-pounding industrial noise of M Ax Noi Mach and New York's Naps. Ardmore Music Hall, 23 E. Lancaster Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill

Never Give Up Your Rebellious Youth w/Pissed Jeans at JB's May 8

It's a good weekend for punk in Philly, and Pissed Jeans, Philly hardcore veterans, are starting it off tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. The Allentown/Philly four-piece has been creating heavy, violent, rock and roll for about a decade, and has recorded four turbulent albums along the way, the last three of which have been released by legendary Sub Pop Records. On their most recent album, Honeys, produced by Alex Newport, the boys sounded a bit more refined, which is not to say that they don’t still can't creat a serious mosh pit, but they’ve rounded out the edge of that head-banging metal. Frontman Matt Korvette still screams the kind of lyrics that you can’t help but relate to, like the pains of being something of a man-child in this day and age on “Teenage Adult.” Come on out this evening, and never give up your rebellious youth! Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $15, 21+ - Emily DiCicco
