The Men touring with Purling Hiss; playing Johnny Brenda’s on 10/22
With a new album in tow, The Men will make a stop at Johnny Brenda’s on October 22nd for a show with Purling Hiss. New Moon is the Brooklyn band’s fourth full-length, and like the album’s title suggests the record represents a fresh start for the band in terms of its sound. Where earlier releases were all-out punk fuzz jammers blowing out every amp the guys could get their hands on, New Moon tempers the fire a bit with a tinge of country loping through the still often scuzzy tracks.
The Men will be joined by Philly favorites Purling Hiss, who are out on tour with them this fall. The Hiss’ own melodic fuzz-rock label debut Water On Mars was released through Drag City in the spring. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.
