Pissed Jeans

Pissed Jeans played Brooklyn's Market Hotel twice earlier this year - once with Fucked Up on Inauguration Night (January) and again (as you can see above) in April. There's a video of the April gig below.

The group's new record, King of Jeans, is out today (8/18) on Sub Pop who write...

If 2005's Shallow was Pissed Jeans coping with moving out of their parents' homes, and 2007's Hope for Men their initial reaction to the mechanical lifestyle of a wage-earner, King of Jeans is their formal and uneasy acceptance of adulthood, by way of one hell of a rock record. Working with renowned producer Alex Newport (who holds a Fudge Tunnel pedigree and has worked with such luminaries as At the Drive-In, The Locust and Sepultura), Pissed Jeans have pushed further into the raw, minimal core of heavy rock music with King of Jeans. Masters of the mundane, beasts of the banal, high priests of the humdrum: these four, white, male high school graduates hardly look further than their own appendages for artistic inspiration, content to execute their own brand of brash and heavy punk music in the Joe Carducci-approved standard rock formation of guitar, bass, drums and vocals. From simple minds and simple fabrics comes this King of Jeans. And there can be only one.
Two tracks from King of Jeans are posted above. It's streaming in full at at Album art and tracklist are below.

Pissed Jeans is not playing Mercury Lounge with Kurt Vile. Kurt Vile is playing though. Stay tuned for Pissed Jeans NYC show announcements.

"mercury lounge is for fags."

The sad thing about this is that one might assume that comment came from some uneducated, religous, conservative, frat-bro. In fact it probably came from a "liberal" "hipster" whose real gripe is that the show is not at a "cool" "DIY" venue like Market Hotel. Ironically their use of the word "fags" proves that this "hipster" is nothing more than a "bro" in disguise. It's a sad, sad time.

So it ends up that Pissed Jeans aren't on the bill of that Mercury Lounge show

is it true that mercury lounge is a lousy, uninspired snoozefest?

is it true that terminal 5 is the least liked venue in new york city?

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2009 10:18 PM

does a venue really determine whether the show is going to be a success? if the people in attendance are into the music and the band goes out and kicks out the jams...well then it's probably gonna be a good time.

11:05 You make no sense. People rate their own personal experience of a show based on a variety of things, but most importantly if they were engaged by the performers in a meaningful way. The quality of a venue (drink prices, atmosphere, scene, etc) can attribute to the enjoyment or lackthereof on any given occasion, while frequently becoming a negative distraction. Regardless of if the band 'kicks out the jams' as you say, people could still have an unpleasant time. So your answer is 'Yes'

Sounds like they have alot of good material. Someone finaly wrote some songs about starting out when they moved away from home and had to get a job just to pay bills.
