Purling Hiss

New Track: "3000 AD" - Purling Hiss

On October 14, High Bias, the new album from Purling Hiss, will be released via Drag City. It's latest single “3000 AD” envelops with the band's customary trademark of heavy, as Mike Polizze haze-hinted subconscious vocals intermingle with a ripping combination of explosive guitar licks and the anchoring of unrelenting backend. There’s a physical power enforcing an emotive sentiment. Purling Hiss will be headlining Johnny Brenda’s on Sunday, October 30.


New Track: "Fever" - Purling Hiss

Purling Hiss will release their forthcoming LP High Bias on October 14 via Drag City. Thick battering percussion and shreds of fuzzy guitar immediately paint the hazy setting of their first single, “Fever”. It’s a raunchy, psych-garage tone that is commanding yet comfortable.

Cross Over Into an Alternative Universe w/Vanillalord at Everybody Hits May 25

Vanillalord have something to celebrate this evening at Everybody Hits with the release of their new record Macro Plaque PAC. It's their first via Boiled Records, and the band crosses over into an alternative universe, as keys, bass, and percussion dictates a playfully intense, search-party sound. Commanding baritone vocals reign from the front as tightly spun post-punk wheels drive ahead, cruising with purpose. That focus captures glances of newly exposed alien lifeforms that inhabit the area, while danger potentially lies around any corner; discovery is at the controls. Tonight, the firing-on-all-cylinders sound of Sheer Mag, whose infectious, garage-hardened grit merges slick guitar licks, a relentless backend thrust, and vocals that tear right through the center, will be joining them. Meanwhile, Mike Polizze (of Purling Hiss) will lock you into a fuzzed-out, psych-pop spectrum, punctuated by flexing guitar muscle. With a smacking immediacy, Memphis punks Ex-Cult complete this lineup. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Purling Hiss (Solo) EP Release Party at KFN March 25

Purling Hiss commemorates the release of its latest EP Something (which is available via Famous Class Records) with a late night show at Kung Fu Necktie. Mastermind Mike Polizze will be dealing up a solo set that will deliver a tenacious blend of scorching, fuzz-textured guitar work, tempered by chilled-out melodies. It's part storm and calm raining down on your ear canals. Spacin’s Jason Killinger, a.k.a. Spacin’ Chillinger, will help lay the foundation with a rifftastic psych-punch that will undoubtedly send you into a sensory spiral, while Kiel Everett (Purling Hiss/Tin Horses) opens the proceedings.
