#DSSP15 Artist of the Day: Permanent Makeup

“We’re from Florida. Everything you’ve heard is true.”
— - James, Chris and Susan

Expanding on the Minutemen-influenced critically-acclaimedart-punk of 2013's The Void...It Creeps, Florida's Permanent Makeup gives us their next full length Taker.

Springing from a collaboratively improv-based writing process throughout 2014, the songs on Taker have a morenaturally complex and aggressive approach.  Bassist Christopher expands "We have seen more of the country as a band, played with countless weird & wonderful bands and been witness to many incredible communities. This album was informed by all of these influences in the context of living and breathing in Tampa Bay, Florida." 

Whether it's drive and determination, a message of community and frustration or immediacy and purpose you want, then look no further than this band and this record.

Recorded and mixed by guitarist James Bess in their homes directly following 2 major tours of the US in 2014 (and coinciding with the band's 5th anniversary of their debut performance),Taker hits streets and shelves on August 21,2015 on CD and limited edition vinyl.
