We are thrilled to return to the excellent all-ages venue death by audio on Monday, November 18th to open for Brooklyn’s rising band of brunettes Desert Sharks and special guest headliners, The Rich Hands, of our favorite label, Burger Records.
Guitars will rule this evening, don’t bring a book.

11/18 UPDATE: Sadly, due to unforeseen vehicular challenges, headliners The Rich Hands had to cancel their tour which included this event. We wish them the best in their travels back to San Antonio, and hope that we might rock together and reunite with Desert Sharks in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, please stay tuned for updates, winter will be a busy one for this little band of outsiders.
Tonight at death by audio (49 South 2nd St between Kent and Wythe, Williamsburg Brooklyn) - yours truly plays after cosmic hair rock Ovary Action (featuring members of Thrill Jockey’s Guardian Alien) with dreamy psychedelic headliners Genders who hail from Portland. We very much look forward to this show and hope you can join. Invitation link here: http://www.facebook.com/events/214054115433480

In the meantime, the rad folks at DINGUS kindly premiered our lead single, “Break it Down”.
Press thus far:
- Who Needs a Genre "…this is an album full of singles, and pretty much every track has a hook that is worthy of standing on its own. The songwriting is catchy, sure, but it’s not gimmicky – these are solid tunes with solid arrangements, and there’s not really a weak link in the entire collection…Crazy Pills are taking you on a journey through time as well as through musical styles. It’s a journey that works well in every way, and it’s clear that this is a band whose strength is bonding with the audience on an emotional level….Restless is powerful, it’s structurally sound, and yet somehow it manages to remain fun and carefree at the same time.
- The Sound of Confusion "…This is more than just revivalism, this is knowledge of what made rock ‘n’ roll such a phenomenon in the first place, and adding this new blast of energy to the genre does it the world of good. Yes, many others have made similar noises in recent years, but Crazy Pills have the potential to be one of the best."
- Quirky NY Chick "…It’s soul-punk and rock ‘n’ roll. It’s an excellent summer album…put it on and go hang out by the pool."
- The VPME "…a thousand times more authentic than those dreary hipster bands redolent of privilege and bankrolled by Daddy’s trust fund. Rather than simply replicating certain genres, Crazy Pills take their influences and create an explosive hook laden sound that has their own personality stamped all over it.
- blahblahblahscience “…an intriguing mix of Gun Club-esque irreverent rootsy punk and more straight up surf & blues.”
- Popa’s Tunes "…pure unadulterated rock and roll."
- Mad Mackerel Music "…likely to induce a mosh pit riot and as authentic a nod to the halycon days of quiffs and leathers as you’re ever going to hear."
- The Dean’s List "…This diverse, confident, and joyfully energetic new disc will keep your leg tapping in time and your voice box eagerly wanting to sing along."
- Not Too Sure “…sounding like the band are breathlessly keeping the guitar from bursting free…”
- Hellhound Music
- All Tomorrow’s Music
- Our moms:
"…I like that I can understand what she’s singing…"
