Cover Reveal: Pissed Jeans

Pissed Jeans are back and harder than ever and we’re featuring them on our Issue #70 flexi edition cover with an exclusive cover version of Lou Reed’s “Waves of Fear.”

Get the issue here, and subscribe here. Plus, all back issues are 30% off!

The band’s new album, Half Divorced, drops March 1 via Sub Pop, and if you think they’re planning on mellowing out, vocalist Matt Korvette is here to fully divorce you of that notion.

“I think part of it is us very strongly not wanting to age into wimp-rock, as is the usual punk trajectory/retirement plan,” he says. “I don’t know of any band who like, released their first authentic hardcore-punk songs six albums in! That idea amused us for sure, that our overall fastest and most aggressive record came out when we’re also at our most elderly. It’s like the direct opposite of SSD, Circle Jerks, Die Kreuzen, Hüsker Dü, all those greats.”
