“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 Tara Edwards (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, Alice Bag, Richie Ramone, Dilly Dally, Le Shok, Wedding Present and The Warlocks.
The Tissues debut LP, Veil was recorded with producer Duane Burda, who has worked on stage with Nine Inch Nails, Peter Hook, Smashing Pumpkins and Failure, and was released in early 2018. Although self-released, Veil entered the NACC official national college radio charts, peaking at #18 in August 2018.
