Did anyone else freak out when Mike Polizze, the main force behind Purling Hiss, played his first solo set recently at Johnny Brendas? Superfans won't want to miss Mike "solo Hiss" opening up for Kurt Vile & the Violators this March. Always prolific, their tour coincides with a new EP 'Something', which was just released.

Here's a few shots I made for him recently for this round of promos.

You can see upcoming tour dates and listen to tracks the new EP at Brooklyn Vegan or Noisy.
