Angry, sarcastic post-hardcore rippers Pissed Jeans have announced that they'll release their new album Why Love Now on February 24 via Sub Pop. The album was co-produced by no wave legend Lydia Lunch and metal producer Arthur Rizk. Here's some insight on the lyrical premise:

The lyrics on Why Love Now are particularly pointed about gender relations and the minefield they present in 2016. “‘It’s Your Knees’ is about the endless, unrequested, commenting on if you’d fuck a girl. You know what I mean? ‘My great aunt won a cooking contest.’ ‘Oh, that’s pretty hot. I’d hit that,’” says Korvette. “It’s bizarre how guys will willingly share this stuff as if it’s always in their brains, and now it gets to come out because you’re on the internet. There’s a boldness to it now that was not maybe there before. So the premise is like, ‘Yeah, she’s hot, but her knees are weird looking. Not for me, man.’”

The first single is "The Bar Is Low," which is as snarling and hard-hitting as you expect from this band. Listen:
