CSS Roll Out New Single


Recently CSS unveiled the lead single from their forthcoming album La Liberación. Entitled “Hits Me Like A Rock,” the song features guest vocals from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. Bubbling over with some serious pop energy, the track is currently available for free download HERE.

The full “Hits Me Like A Rock” single, which hits iTunes soon, will also include remixes courtesy of Dillon Francis and Mad Decent’s digital dance purveyors Depressed Buttons. So, keep an eye out for that.

CSS Reveal Cover, Tracklist, and Title for Upcoming Third LP

Now that CSS have finished making the rounds on their co-headlining tour with Sleigh Bells, it’s back to the business that got them there.  The Brazilian dance rock outfit will release La Liberación (cover art above) on August 22nd, at the peak of the Summer season — as if they weren;t the cause for enough perspiration already.  The album will feature cuts like “I Love You” and “Fuck Everything,” so don’t think you know what to expect.  La Liberación also features collaborations from Ratatat, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, and Mike Garson (the guy who played piano on David Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane”).  Check back for the eventual preview track.

CSS Trade Labels

Brazillian sensation CSS have traded in their partnership with Sub Pop for a new label.

The group announced they have signed with V2/Cooperative Music/Downtown Records. They always say three names are better than one…or something.

The band will release their newest album August 29th. It’s called La Liberacion. Lovefoxxx, the singer for the band, said that her mantra for the new record is “rip shit.” Sounds like they want to get even louder.

Throughout the summer, CSS will be touring with fellow noisemakers Sleigh Bells. You can see them both here (but first I’d recommend some ear plugs).
