Last week, we finally got to hear Why Love Now? in its entirety, but Pissed Jeans isn’t stopping there. The album officially dropped today, and to celebrate, they’ve shared a new video for lead single “The Bar Is Low”. It’s a glorious ode to feeling emasculated at the gym, so if that’s a sensitive subject for you, you might want to sit this one out. Otherwise, stream the clip below. Continue reading →

Philly punks Pissed Jeans shocked the world (or maybe the segment of the world that listens to Pissed Jeans) by streaming their new record Why Love Now a whole week early through Noisey. Their fifth record, released on Sub Pop, channels the angst of pure noise punk as the band blasts through 12-tracks of sexually-charged pit-forming rock n’ roll. Continue reading →

Philly punks Pissed Jeans have been perfecting the art of sardonicism for years now, and so far, they’ve shown no signs of slowing down.  From the ridiculous music videos to the wild live shows, their sneering, cynical approach to rock & roll has always set them apart from their Sub Pop label mates. It’s even reflected in their new press photos, which feature the band taking up about 5% of a glorified shot of the Kurt Vile mural. They’re currently gearing up for the release of their fifth album Why Love Now, and in preparation, they’ve shared its first single. Continue reading →

Pissed Jeans will take a break from their overseas travels to play a show at Underground Arts on June 25th. The stalwart Allentown / Philly punk band announced at the end of 2015 that they would be recording a new album this year, following-up 2013’s Honeys LP with “post-adult themes and pre-metal riffs with even less regard for interesting time signatures.”

On Friday night, Pissed Jeans bombarded the Ardmore Music Hall with their cataclysmic sound as part of their recent escapade with Tired Hands Brewing Company. The brewery recently teamed up with the snazzy Ardmore venue to host shows, and the gritty Philadelphia punk band was the first to be invited to perform and craft a unique beer with the enthusiastic brewing team. The brew, named “People Person,” contained juicy tastes of honey, smoke, and wheat, and was delightful to drink while watching some in-your-face live music. Continue reading →

This Friday, Philly-via-Allentown punk band Pissed Jeans plays the Ardmore Music Hall to celebrate “People Person,” a collaborative pale ale brewed with Tired Hands Brewing Company and named after the leading track from their clamorous Sub-Pop debut, Hope For Men. Tired Hands co-founder/brewer Jean Broillet and the brewing team, who share an affinity for noise punk, worked with band members to brew the hoppy, sessionable ale that is crafted for drinking at a Pissed Jeans show.

Worlds Collide: Ron Gallo covers Pissed Jeans

Philly’s Ron Gallo has taken his career on some bizarre twists and turns since his roots-rock outfit Toy Soldiers disbanded last year. He’s landed residencies in New York hotel lobbies in the style of the jazz greats he admires. He’s made nervy and somewhat trippy music videos. He slapped a slice of pizza on his face for an album cover.

But here’s one we didn’t see coming at all. Continue reading →

We last heard from Philly noise-punk four-piece Pissed Jeans last summer when their self-released debut Shallow got a reissue on their label, Sub Pop Records. Before that, their last record of new material was the awesomely hard-hitting Honeys, released in 2013, meaning we’re probably due for a new round of ragers from these dudes. Hopefully tonight’s headlining show at Johnny Brenda’s will bring with it some new material; tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Continue reading →
