Sheer Mag





Weekend Warrior, August 25 - 27

This Saturday evening, R5 Productions, along with WPRB, will be presenting former Deli Philly Best Emerging Artist Sheer Mag’s record release show at Union Transfer. The band’s long-awaited full-length debut, Need to Feel Your Love, (Wilsuns Recording Company) doesn’t disappoint, meshing powerfully impassioned vocals, tight late night grooves and adrenalin-laced, white-hot, rifftastic invasions. Those assertive aggressions are craftily threaded, revealing tender, candle-lit flourishes. While exhibiting a take-it-as-it-is, raw and roaring exterior, a calculated precision lies within. They’ll be supported by the fuzz-forward, sticky psych rock of Purling Hiss, the heart-pounding, quick-bursting punk of Dark Thoughts, and the instantaneous hardcore of NYC’s Haram.

Meanwhile, Home Outgrown is presenting a weekend-long fest, dubbed A Fest We Didn’t Know What to Name, which will spread across three Philly DIY spaces. Three Man Cannon and Coping Skills are among those ushering tonight’s show at Broke Down Palace, while the bombarding, catchy Superweaks are lined up to headline Hole Foods this Saturday, and the diverse, personal narratives of Curtis Cooper will be setting up shop on Sunday at Little Italy. – Michael Colavita

New Sheer Mag LP Available for Streaming

The official release date for Sheer Mag’s full-length debut via Wilsun RC is July 14. However, the wait is over; Need to Feel Your Love is here courtesy of NPR’s First Listen. The album immediately adheres as juxtaposing, ready-to-rumble grit is countered by sweetened, soulful vocals. Meshing that tough vulnerability with short-fused guitar licks and grimy infectious grooves, Sheer Mag unleashes a polished, pugilistic power, while demonstrating an ability to adjust and adapt over a course of sonic settings.





New Track: "Need to Feel Your Love" - Sheer Mag

It sounds like Philly punks Sheer Mag might have found their first commercial radio single with "Need to Feel Your Love". The rifftastic crew lays down an infectious groove for the title track from their forthcoming album. Frontwoman Christina Halladay shares a bit of insight into their latest offering: "When you get to the point of a romantic relationship and you feel as if you have done everything to give that person a chance to make the most out of it and you are at the breaking point and you NEED them to do something more, even if you don’t exactly know that is." Need to Feel Your Love is due out July 14 via Wilsuns RC, and the band has plans for a massive U.S. tour in support of the album. You can join them at their record release celebration in Philly on Saturday, August 26 at Union Transfer, where they'll be sharing the billing with Purling Hiss, Haram, and S-21





Weekend Warrior May 12 - 14

 An immediate, determined sense of soulful urgency drips from Sheer Mag. Shrouded in sticky grooves united with decisively climbing guitar licks, the band seizes the opportunity, gathering the collective energy within the room and harnessing it into an exhibition, showcasing the duality, when vulnerability transforms into power. Fresh off the announcement of their forthcoming debut full-length Need to Feel Your Love, which will be available on July 16 via Static Shock Records, the former Deli Philly Artist(s) of Year bring their rippin' and roarin' chew ‘em up and spit ‘em out rock 'n' roll to First Unitarian Church this Saturday. The melodic, fuzz-speckled, bass-thumping garage-punk of Marge help to fortify this billing, which also includes Vancouver’s Weed.
 
Meanwhile, over at PhilaMOCA on the same evening, the bright, bubbling, psych-venturing pop of six-piece collective Circadian Rhythms gently stacks instrumental layers, melding refreshingly with its slightly off-kilter arrangements. The band will be celebrating its new record, A Peculiar Kind of Afternoon, supported by the sunny instrumentals of R.R. Perkins and the casually cloudy exploits of Mavis the Dog. - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Just Can't Get Enough" - Sheer Mag

Sheer Mag just announced that their highly-anticipated debut full-length album, Need To Feel Your Love, will be released on July 14 via Static Shock Records. Its debut single, “Just Can’t Get Enough,” combines soulfully, unabashed vocals with quick charges of weaving guitar. That precisely threaded juxtaposition of raw refinement is exactly what you need to get over this hump day. Sheer Mag will be headlining the First Unitarian Church this Saturday, May 13 with support from Marge, Weed, and Bugg.
