Pampers have been waging an assault on NYC (and eardrums) for the last two years with their blisteringly loud, snaggletooth artpunk. The band play a lot and maybe you saw them this summer opening for Fuzz or OBN IIIs or at Union Pool's 8/13 "Summer Thunder" series show. After a couple of choice, self-released 7"s, the band will release their self titled debut album which will be out on October 29 via In the Red. You can stream three tracks off the LP, including the naggingly catchy, borderline new wave "Purple Brain," and you can stream it in this post.

If you haven't seen them live yet, you should remedy that -- Pampers are killer live. Luckily, they've got more than a few upcoming shows both in NYC and on tour. They play twice in the city this weekend: Cake Shop on Friday (9/20) opening for Aussie proto-grunge legends Cosmic Psychos (the first of two Cosmic Psychos shows at that venue), and also play Sunday (9/22) at Death by Audio with Spray Paint, Degreaser and Beech Creeps.

Pampers then will head out on tour with The Men (current bassist Ben Greenberg produced Pamps' LP) and Purling Hiss. That tour hits NYC on November 5 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and tickets are still available. Right before the MHOW show, Pampers will play a record release party at Death by Audio on November 2 with support TBA.

All Pampers tour dates are listed, plus the track streams, below...
