New Album “Half Divorced” Out March 1st via Sub Pop Records

Pre-order

Pissed Jeans is sharing the Joe Stakun-directed official video for “Cling to a Poisoned Dream,” a bruising meditation of harsh truths, and a highlight from their excellent sixth album Half Divorced, out this Friday, March 1st, worldwide on Sub Pop.

Next week, Pissed Jeans will appear on The Best Show with Tom Scharpling on March 5th and will also host an hourlong takeover of NTS Radio on Friday, March 8th (5pm GMT).

Pissed Jeans have got this almighty energy ready to blaze into their immense arrangements. Pissed Jeans have already proved with the releases from the new album that they are on this prolific form, the latest track is a raucous and fierce effort, cutting through the fast-paced tempo and battling instrumentation to deliver something with this essential appeal. The urgency emits from every musician as they strive for this punk aggression, the chords slash through the intense landscape and the vocal notes position themselves with this vital appeal.

The twelve songs on Half Divorced skewer the tension between youthful optimism and the sobering realities of adulthood. Pissed Jeans’ – Matt Korvette (vocals), Bradley Fry (guitar), Randy Huth (bass), and Sean McGuinness (drums) – notorious acerbic sense of humor remains sharper than ever as they dismember some of the joys that contemporary adult life has to offer. 

Half Divorced was produced and mixed by Pissed Jeans and recorded by Don Godwin with assistance from Mike Petillo at Tonal Park in Takoma Park, Maryland, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (co-producer and mixer for Why Love Now). 

Half Divorced is available to preorder from Sub Pop.
