HIRS Announce Debut LP Featuring Laura Jane Grace, Shirley Manson and More

Thursday, 15 February 2018 Written by Huw Baines

The HIRS Collective will put out their first full length this spring.

‘Friends. Lovers. Favorites’ features a stacked supporting cast, with contributions from Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace, Shirley Manson of Garbage, Limp Wrist’s Martin Crudo, Screaming Females’ Marissa Paternoster, Erica Freas of RVIVR, Sadie Switchblade of G.L.O.S.S., Alice Bag and Candace Hansen, and Pierce of Soul Glo.

It’s out on April 20 via Get Better/SRA and will also include last year’s ‘You Can’t Kill Us’ and a reworked version of that EP under the name ‘You Can Remix Us’. HIRS also have a split with tourmates Thou out on the same day.

“The HIRS Collective's first full length album, ‘Friends. Lovers. Favorites.’, is the product of almost four years of hard work between The Collective and their friends, lovers, and favorites who they have invited to join their intentional, ever growing, and never ending collective of anti-authoritarian freaks, queers, outcasts, & weirdos.”

The Thrill of Imperfection: Dan Patlansky On Keeping It Raw
Thu 01 Feb 2018
Photo: Tobias Coetsee If you’re fed up with over-produced music and sick of average singers having their voices enhanced by studio technology, then Dan Patlansky feels your pain. Which is why ‘Perfection Kills’, the guitar slinger’s aptly-titled new album, deliberately aims a blues-rock blunderbuss at any notion of flawlessness. It’s delivered with an unvarnished live sound that’ll make you feel like you’re in the front row having the fortitude of your eardrums tested.
Rock 'n' Soul Preacher Man: Arise For Anderson East
Wed 31 Jan 2018
Straight out of Alabama (via Nashville) and armed with a voice that sounds like Ray Lamontagne if he was possessed by the spirit of Otis Redding, Anderson East is on the cusp of the big time thanks to a heart-wrenching mix of smoking soul, super-charged R&B and gospel on his new record, ‘Encore’.
Bat Fangs - Bat Fangs (Album Review)
Wed 07 Feb 2018
Listening to Bat Fangs’ self-titled bow could feel like taking inventory. After all, its shelves are overflowing with rock staples: chunky riffs, driving drums and snotty hooks. But the duo - guitarist Betsy Wright, lately of Ex Hex, and Flesh Wounds drummer Laura King - consistently make them feel vital, alive and, perhaps most importantly, fun.

Dan Patlansky - Perfection Kills (Album Review)
Fri 16 Feb 2018
Photo: Tobias Coetsee If South African singer, songwriter and guitarist Dan Patlansky is proficient at DIY he’d best have his tools handy come December. Following hot on the heels of breakout release ‘Dear Silence Thieves’ and its follow-up ‘Introvertigo’, two fantastic modern blues-rock albums that landed multiple prizes, ‘Perfection Kills’ is another superb offering that’s liable to add more gongs to his growing collection. In other words, Patlansky’s going to need a bigger mantelpiece.
