D.C. experimental punk rockers PUFF PIECES touring Europe on May and June

Washington, D.C.’s PUFF PIECES are releasing a new 7″ single, Born 2 Die, this June on Lovitt Records. The single is a follow up to their full-length “Bland in D.C.” which was released last year. The A-side was recorded last year at Inner Ear Studios with Ian MacKaye and Don Zientara. The B side is a remix of the same song titled “Born to Cry.” The band will be going to Europe for the first time in a few weeks – see the dates below.

In 2012, at the behest of Mike Andre, a reluctant Justin Moyer (E.D. Sedgwick/Supersystem) and Amanda Huron (Weed Tree/Caution Curves) were conscripted into helping Mike play and record some unrealized songs he had floating around. After a series of precarious fits and starts, the band coalesced into a semi-stable entity known as Puff Pieces in 2013 and began playing shows. Based on their experiences in various now-defunct bands (Amanda and Mike in Vertebrates, and Mike and Justin in Antelope), and long-term involvement in D.C.’s punk and noise scenes, Puff Pieces strives to destroy the bland hegemony of their city’s condo-crazed culture with a mix of melody and nervous dissonance.
