By the time another dreadful holiday season (with all of its bullshit mirth and soul-sucking pseudo-cheer) drags its sorry, overweight, wheezing, bedraggled ass across the finish line sometime around mid-January, most folks are about ready to scream. Luckily, so are Pennsylvania-based sludge-fuckers Pissed Jeans! And according to the ‘Fork, they’ll have a new album out in February of next year for you to shred your lungs along to. Hey, neat; maybe whatever god you believe in really exists after all!
This new one, entitled Honeys, follows up 2009’s King of Jeans (TMT Review), which IMO was a great record to throw on after work for a good session of what I like to call ‘yelling at your own reflection in a full-length mirror in disgust!’ And on a less personal (and therefore less interesting) note, it also marks their third album for Sub Pop. While no specific February 2013 date seems to have been established just yet, you can get yourself an MP3 of the first taste of the new album, “Bathroom Laughter,” right now by surrendering your old college email address that you still use for things like this to the widget below. Which might be worth doing if you’re feeling me on the whole “frantic scream therapy” thing. After all, there’s a whole lot of bullshit to yell about, and we’re only at Thanksgiving, people.
