Black Pussy Magic Mustache album cover

Portland OR stoner-rock up and comers Black Pussy are dropping their new album Magic Mustache (Made In China Records) next week they are streaming their new song ‘Lion’s Breath’ here. The band played a sold-out show this past weekend, opening for the mighty Sleep at the Sabretooth Music Festival. Well known for being equal parts heavy, trippy, yet melodic Black Pussy is a band in the mold of greats such as Kyuss, Red Fang, early Baroness, and Queens of The Stone Age among others. Pre-orders are up now including several custom vinyl versions from the Made In China Website.

Press Notes:

In just three days, Portland’s stoner-pop outfit Black Pussy will play to a SOLD OUT show with Sleep at the Crystal Ballroom during the inaugural Sabertooth Music Festival. Ahead of the event, Terrorizer is streaming “Lion’s Breath,” the anthemic third single from the band’s sophomore album, Magic Mustache, out on LP/CD/DD February 17th on Made In China Records. (Preorders available now on HERE.)

Press Notes:

Black Pussy, Portland’s infamous, infectiously catchy and ever-restless stoner-pop outfit was named for the original working title of The Rolling Stones’ mega-hit “Brown Sugar”–a blatantly anti-racism tune. The past few years have seen them touring nonstop, including a North American stint with ex-Kyuss legends Vista Chino. For the past two years, the group has worked on heavy, psychedelic pop songs with not only Portland recording engineer Adam Pike (Red Fang, Norska, Black Elk, etc.) but also the legendary Kyuss founding drummer and multi-instrumentalist Brant Bjork, and the culmination of years of hard work, psychedelic trips and perpetual touring brings to life a ’70s-influenced, hide-your-daughters-because-they’re-coming-to-town rock ‘n’ roll attitude that sounds like Tarantino directing a Thin Lizzy video in the low desert.
