The American leg of the Weirdon tour is nearing a close, and holy shit - the Hiss are holy-freakin'-HOT! A full-tilt power trio providing a heavy hit of guitar heronics, Purling Hiss screech and claw their way around a song-sonics like cats with their paws jammed into in the proverbial pocket. Tres electrique! As 2014 twilights (and prepares to go 'nova) , das Hiss set their dead red radar eyes towards their next haunting grounds: the castles, catacombs and modern, biker friendly infrastructure of Europe! In a scene full of half-baked ideas and attempted-shred, it's invigorating to finally experience a band that is live as it is loud: the twice-baked, authentic article! Mike Polizze has some magic seeping forth from underneath his fingernails; mixed within the reasonably excessive grime, there's illuminating, effortless song-craft! Torch bearing for the flannel-set going back 5 decades, Purling Hiss' shows are wild, wooly, and caked in wooded danger - a different altered beast rears it's terrifying head each night, guitars and drums at the ready, unconscious and ready to ROCK you. Will you be just as ready? Stay lucid, European friends! It's going to get Weirdon before winter's almost gone. Take this advance notice and call us in the morning: Purling Hiss announce their European tour!
