Dirty On Purpose have a new record coming out June 27… It’s called Hallelujah Sirens and everyone’s really excited about it!

“New York’s Dirty on Purpose returns with another collection of pop chestnuts, these louder and fuzzier than those on their debut. The essential elements are still in place: The group’s knack for melancholy melody hasn’t faded, but they’re rowdier and messier and more willing to smudge the clean lines that cage in their compositions. ‘Light Pollution’ is airy and assured, but the guitars that propel it are grizzled and growling. Hallelujah Sirens is a straight shot of C86 joy twenty years after the fact.” – eMusic
