“Three pissed-off women and one dude on guitar who appears perpetually hungover create the harshest feminist art-punk howl to emerge from Los Angeles since Hole’s earliest 45s. 2017 debut LP Veil bursts with clangy guitars, motorik drums, and Kristine Nevrose’s battery acid shriek. Think Kathleen Hanna joining Gang of Four.” –The Austin Chronicle
“A (mostly) female punk act oozing insubordination.” –Indiemusic.fr
The Tissues, a dark and noisey art-punk quartet were formed in late 2015 from the remnants of NE Los Angeles post-punk act Flaamingos.
Kristine Nevrose (vocals) and Jerry Narrows (guitar) called on friends Bianca Ayala (bass) and Colette Arenas (drums) to complete the lineup, creating an energetic sound influenced by Pylon, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Stooges, The Make-Up etc.
A four song demo EP released in Jan 2016 creeped onto indie radio playlists and an energetic live sound generated enough interest for the band to land opening slots for Pylon, Richie Ramone, Dilly Dally and The Warlocks.
The Tissues’ debut LP, “Veil” has been recorded with producer Duane Burda, who has worked on stage with Nine Inch Nails, Peter Hook and Failure, and will be released in July 2017.
