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.”

As a form, it's designed to keep listeners on their toes, directing and misdirecting with syncopated rhythms, jagged melodic progressions and non-standard time signatures. That might not seem like a recipe for commercial success, but if there's one thing Brits can get behind it's art that's awkward, intelligent and self aware.

Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.
