Pissed Jeans to play The Institute Birmingham
We couldn’t be more excited to announce It’s Just Noise are teaming up with Birmingham Promoters to bring legendary noise-rock four-piece Pissed Jeans to Birmingham for a rare live outing!
Age and a total of four full-lengths haven’t mellowed Pissed Jeans; they can still unleash a blare that will exfoliate your cochlea. Formed in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Pissed Jeans released Shallow, their first album, in 2005 on Parts Unknown Records. The band relocated to Philadelphia seven years ago, and Sub Pop released Hope for Men in 2007, and then King of Jeans in 2009. The latter was recorded by Grammy nominee Alex Newport, who also recorded their latest album, Honeys.
The process of recording four full-lengths has refined Pissed Jeans. Instead of rehashing past records or diverging in a vastly different direction their ideas and execution have become more subtly focused. They also rock like nobody’s business. Do yourself a favor and forget all the claptrap you’ve heard about other bands delivering the goods. If you want bloodthirsty, you’ve got it…
Sometimes the band sounds like hearing yourself being bashed over the head with a snow shovel. Sometimes they sound like that feeling you’d get if you dipped your arm up to the elbow in a vat of boiling grease. Sometimes they slow down and they sound like when you wake up from nightmare you can’t quite remember. Pissed Jeans trucks in menacing songs about insecurity, and nobody has ever done it better.
PISSED JEANS PLAY THE INSTITUTE BIRMINGHAM ON FRI 15TH AUGUST 2014. TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE.
