All pre-orders include a download of the full record on May 22nd, two weeks before the release date. Pre-orders are also available at iTunes and Amazon. Two tracks from the record are available for listening now. Head over to the Online Store to download "DIY2K" or to Rolling Stone to stream "REVERSE VAMPIRE." The single for "REVERSE VAMPIRE" is also available and includes a demo of album track "PSYCHIC PAIN."
PUJOL has several shows in the Midwest and South over the next few weeks, including a stop at this years Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Check out the full list below.
PUJOL formed in 2009 as a last ditch effort to appease the Sarlacc Pit of Life with adeptly crafted songs based firmly in meaningful lyrical content. It’s these motives and songs that have taken PUJOL from the basements of Middle Tennessee to stages across the country and have garnered notice from more than just those with their ear to the ground.
Following a plethora of singles and cassettes and the the critically praised Nasty, Brutish, and Short EP from last year, PUJOL finally has an official debut full-length ready for unveiling. UNITED STATES OF BEING continues on with PUJOL’s doctrine of trying hard everyday and ventures lyrically to a place that most contemporaries fail to reach. Addressing the current status of twenty-somethings in America’s present and capturing their shared dispositions, the album throws the brakes on “catharsis,” and begs the listener to decide for themselves how to answer the robot’s last question, “What is love?” With riff-oriented guitar playing reminiscent of greats like The Replacements and Beetlejuice-esque earworms, PUJOL now sits atop the fringes of the rock and roll and DIY vernacular."
