Tits of Clay follows sold-out shows with announcement of PledgeMusic-funded EP

Following successful sold-out shows at Mercury Lounge and Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, punk rockers Tits of Clay launch a PledgeMusic campaign to bring fans an EP of covers and original tunes inspired by their Broadway performance in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. In return, the band offers unique mementos like disposable cameras filled with personal photos taken in the studio and at their live shows.

Handpicked by renowned musician/composer Stephen Trask, the band performs by day/evening as the Angry Inch in the Tony Award winning Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and by night as Hedwig-lyric-inspired Tits of Clay. The band will now “assume the disguise of their true identities” in a 4-song EP that showcases the excitement and energy of their alter-ego’s live performances.

Born out of the idea that any proper production of Hedwig must remain true to its New York City night club roots, the band members—all of whom have serious cred in the rock world—knew immediately that the Broadway stage could not contain their shared creativity. The EP will be an extension of their club performances, which pay homage to and further explore Hedwig’s punk rock roots.
Visit the PledgeMusic page HERE for more details on the campaign and its incentives.

SOCIETY SUCKER: Decibel Magazine Streaming New EP From North Carolina Hardcore Group; Society Sucker 7" Out Now Now On Get This Right Records

Decibel Magazine's infamous Deciblog portal is hosting an exclusive stream of Society Sucker, the brutally groove-laden new EP from the Wilmington, North Carolina act of the same name, in honor of its parole date today. Alongside the five-song platter of retribution, the write-up of the EP states ofSOCIETY SUCKER's brand new output "is rife with gloriously grimy grooves, rancid earworm riffage, and nasty, nasty straight-from-the-gutter breakdowns."

Officially out today through Get This Right Records, Society Sucker comes in several deviations, the 7" pressed on three different colors of wax and the cover in four variations, which when combined, form one larger image, as viewable RIGHT HERE. Place orders for the vinyl HERE, and the digitalHERE.

Following their hometown record release show for the EP several days ago, further tour actions will be plotted and announced over the coming weeks.

Having quickly surged to the forefront of the quickly growing North Carolina hardcore scene since forming only a year ago, SOCIETY SUCKER builds their foundation in the sturdy tradition of acts like Subzero, Next Step Up and Merauder, with a slick and streetwise approach packed with aggro guitar lines, slamming breakdowns and belittling gang chants fans of Trapped Under Ice, Suburban Scum and Incendiary need to get on without hesitation. Society Sucker was recorded in February of this year at The Skylight Studio with Vince Ratti and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and bears bold cover art by Steven Kulesza. SOCIETY SUCKER is a band committed to keeping hardcore hard. This is the proof.
