Punk rock trio Potty Mouth, who have been championed for their raw and energetic music by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, NPR, BBC Radio 1, Entertainment Weekly, The FADER, etc., will be performing on Friday, June 28th at Smalls Funhouse in Pittsburgh to support their 2019 North American Summer Tour with Dressy Bessy, Colleen Green and Justus Proffit. The band has spent the last few years touring relentlessly with artists including Against Me!, The Go-Gos, CHVRCHES, and Skating Polly, and put on a truly incredible live performance.
Their new album SNAFU came out March 1, with Pitchfork calling it “an arena-sized follow up that sounds like a major-label effort without all the compromises.” You can read the positive review HERE. Additionally, the band recently participated in a high energy session with XPN where you can get a real sense of their funky style and effervescent energy!
“We’re so excited to finally bring the songs from our new record SNAFU on the road and play them live for people!” frontwoman Abby Weems shared. “This tour is going to be especially fun because we already love Dressy Bessy and Colleen Green. Plus, Colleen is going to be riding with us in our van! Look out for the party bus coming through your town this summer!!”
The critically lauded album was inspired by the band not comprising to the traditional standards of the music industry, and Potty Mouth has toured relentlessly in recent years supporting acts such as Against Me!, The Go-Gos, CHVRCHES and Skating Polly.Watch the band’s raw live performance on Last Call with Carson DalyHERE, and watch the music video for lead single “22” via Refinery 29 HERE, plus the superhero-inspired video for “Liar” via FLOODHERE.
