MRS. PISS - SELF-SURGERY
Mrs. Piss is a new collaboration between Chelsea Wolfe and Jess Gowrie .
Drawing on their collective rock, metal, and industrial influences, the
project began while the two were touring around together during Wolfe's
Hiss Spun album in 2017. The result is their debut album Self-Surgery,
which was recorded at The Dock Studio in Sacramento, CA and in Wolfe's
home studio, The Canyon.
These songs feel more urgent and visceral than anything either of them
has created before: heaviness spurred on by punk spirit.
Chelsea Wolfe (vocals, guitar): "Working on this project brought Jess and
I so much closer as songwriters and production partners, after reuniting
as friends and bandmates. It was freeing and fun to channel some wild
energies that I don't typically put into my own music. We tried not to
overthink the songs as we were writing them, but at the same time we
did consciously put a lot into crafting them into our own weird sonic
vision. This project was a chance for us to do things our own way, on our
own terms, and we plan to invite more womxn musicians along for future
Mrs. Piss recordings." CW Jess Gowrie (drums, guitar, bass,
programming): "To me, Mrs. Piss represents a musical chemistry cut
short long ago that now gets a second chance. Creating with Chelsea has
always been very liberating for me, and we both push each other to try
new things: anything and everything. Both of us have grown so much as
writers and musicians since our first band together (Red Host), and with
the journeys we had to take separately to get there, we both have so
much more to say; so much more pain and anger to express. That said,
we also had a lot of fun doing it, not to mention how freeing it is to not
give a f-k and to just create." JG "Doomy chugs, ethereal vocals and
massive distortion sounds are the order of the day, summoning the
menacing timbres that fueled Wolfe's Abyss and Hiss Spun records"
GUITAR WORLD "a grungy, sludgy new project that defies expectations"
REVOLVER "Together, they make a grandly grungy noise - something
bigger and more anthemic than what we're used to hearing from Wolfe"
STEREOGUM "urgent and abrasive" CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND "
thundering tracks that sound as if they had diliberately set about to
destroy a roomful of amplifiers" BLACKBOOK
