Pissed Jeans

Hot Press - - Music World 4104 -

@hot­press: The al­bum cov­ers a lot about toxic mas­culin­ity, how was that a topic you were drawn to?

@ThePissedJeans: I try to fo­cus on things that are real and present in my life, and it’s some­thing I’d seen a lot. I’m try­ing to be more aware of it in my­self.

@hot­press: What was it like work­ing with Lind­say Hunter, how’d that spo­ken word part of “I’m a Man” come about? @ThePissedJeans: She does the kind of writ­ing that I’d want to do if I wrote books in­stead of lyrics. She had this piece, and I was like, this is so scary, it was per­fect.

@hot­press: You guys have been a band for a while and known each other for even longer, what’s that re­la­tion­ship like?

@ThePissedJeans: We un­der­stand each other. It’s like a fam­ily, but we don’t get to see each other ev­ery day. It’s a nice break when we come to­gether as Pissed Jeans.

@hot­press: How’s the new stuff be­ing re­ceived on the road?

@ThePissedJeans: It’s great when they’re en­joy­ing one they’ve never heard be­fore – when it’s im­pact­ing them in some way. Not lyri­cally, they don’t know what I’m say­ing, but it’s great to watch.

@hot­press: Are you see­ing mostly new faces or is it the same fan­base?

@ThePissedJeans: There was one to­tally packed gig, but I looked around, I didn’t know any of these peo­ple! It was great, but then it was like, where are all our old friends? @hot­press: Any plans to come to Ire­land?

@ThePissedJeans: Not yet, but our plans change quickly all the time, and we’d love to, so you never know, put us down for a maybe, for sure.

@hot­press: What does it mean to you to be a punk in this mod­ern age?

@ThePissedJeans: Ques­tion ev­ery­thing. It’s so im­por­tant now to be like, what makes what I’m do­ing dif­fer­ent from every­body else?

Pissed Jeans’ new al­bum, Why Love Now, is avail­able now.
