The Purling Hiss sound is revered by discerning listeners for its devastational waves of guitar rock crashing atop sweet melodies and pile-driving rhythm tunes alike. These contrasts in the hands of Mike Polizze impact upon buzzing pleasure centers for each listener, more of them with every lick - people who like rock songs and like to sing along and don't mind a little dirt for their trouble, live or on record. In a best of both worlds scenario, you've got a hot "new" Hiss LP in one hand and a Hiss concert ticket in the other... and so it shall be! Purling Hiss announce a country-wide tour of the U.S.A. in March and the release of Dizzy Polizzy on April 22nd!
Dizzy is kind of the more innocent sister to Public Service Announcement, sweet songs and mini-ragers, a baby version of the squalor that would soon grow too much hair in all the right places. Dizzy Polizzy serves up the beginnings of the what would become Purling Hiss, going all the way back to 2004, building off solid, breakfast-of-champion prototype-sounds from the likes 'Halen and Neil Young and head-butting them in a Hissier direction.
Originally conceived as a tour only cassette, Dizzy Polizzy will now be on LP for the first time ever, to tide Hiss-heads over while Purling Hiss works on their next LP (COMING SOON!), one sure to meld the evolutions of Water On Mars with the devolutions of the now-defined Dizzy Polizzy strain. This we gotta hear! And so do you! But first, you should add the wild young rock visions of Mike Polizze and Purling Hiss to your out-pile!
