We love it when September kicks off with a burning anthem, and whoo-ha, have Purling Hiss just lit one that's particularly blazin'! Back in the mid-summer you educated yourself in a leisurely manner with da Hiss’s first single, “Learning Slowly;" now prepare to break through their “Forcefield of Solitude,” single numero dos off their howling new album, Weirdon, out September 23rd! "Forcefield of Solitude" is Purling Hiss' summer fade, a sunset jam that enters your ear and wraps itself around your cell membrane, dividing and multiplying on repeat. If you listen to “Forcefield” and are not overcome by the purest sense of mainlined, rock n' rock joy, then check yer ticker (and your veins), because something’s broke and you need a different doctor (or dealer). It’s the opening salvo fired on an album replete with magisterial portraits of the go-nowhere lifestyle in abstract - listen to "Forcefield of Solitude" and prepare for Purling Hiss to invade your town this fall!
