Hear Pissed Jeans’ Crushing New Track “Sixty-Two Thousand Dollars in Debt”

Today, February 6th, Pissed Jeans is sharing “Sixty-Two Thousand Dollars in Debt,” a crushing new track about the heady excitement of shrinking debt-to-credit ratios, and a highlight from their forthcoming album Half Divorced.
Last month, the band announced the release of the album with the official video for indelible lead single “Moving On” from director and frequent collaborator Joe Stakun (“The Bar Is Low,” “Bathroom Laughter,” “Romanticize Me”).
The FADER says “Moving On” is, “…a song that cuts deep to the core while brightening up the layers of distortion that have defined the sound of previous Pissed Jeans albums through perky guitar tones and anthemic vocals.” Stereogum named the song one of its “5 Best Songs of the Week,” and said, “Where Pissed Jeans’ music was once overwhelmingly mean and scuzzy, ‘Moving On’ sounds vast and anthemic, with keyboards and melodies and an actual singable hook. It might be the friendliest song that Pissed Jeans have ever recorded.”
Later this month, Pissed Jeans will also grace the cover of New Noise Magazine’s February/March issue (see January 31st news story).
Pissed Jeans’ Half Divorced is the follow-up to 2017’s Why Love Now, an album that took aim at the mundane discomforts of modern life. The twelve songs of Half Divorced skewer the tension between youthful optimism and the sobering realities of adulthood. Pissed Jeans’ – Matt Korvette (vocals), Bradley Fry (guitar),  Randy Huth (bass), and Sean McGuinness (drums) – notorious acerbic sense of humor remains sharper than ever as they dismember some of the joys that contemporary adult life has to offer.
Half Divorced was produced and mixed by Pissed Jeans and Don Godwin and engineered by Mike Petillo at Tonal Park in Takoma Park, Maryland, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (co-producer and mixer for Why Love Now).
