"Making a return after four years, the Pennsylvanian punks are on blisteringly hot form." The Independent

"Plenty of young pups are revisiting the pop=smart bludgeon of, say, pre-goldrush Nirvana, but only P**sed Jeans deliver with such panache" Mojo

" a fucking brilliant continuum in the evolution of a band that shows the past presents the future." The 405

"...Impossibly scuzzy, breakneck punk romp" [Best New Track “Bathroom Laughter”] - Pitchfork 
 
"A gnarled ball of pent-up potency reminiscent of fellow Philly fanatics Clockcleaner or sadly defunct Welsh synapse-wreckers Mclusky. You will want to hear this live and buy a round of shots." [“Bathroom Laughter” track review] - SPIN.com 
 
“Bathroom Laughter” is a bracing, troglodytic burst of hate that gives me hope for a deeply ugly album. It’s awesome." [“Bathroom Laughter” track review] - Stereogum

 
P**sed Jeans will take their unpredictably raucous live show on the road in the US this spring to support their stellar 4th album Honeys, out 25th February on Sub Pop. The CD and LP will come with an exclusive (and bonus!) 7".
Honeys  featuring the singles “Bathroom Laughter” and “Cathouse,” along with “Health Plan,” “Loubs” and “Teenage Adult” was recorded by Grammy-nominated producer Alex Newport at Milkboy Studios in Philadelphia. 
 
SPIN, who spoke with P**sed Jeans’ singer Matt Korvette about the recording of Honeys, raved: “Listeners will have the opportunity to take in yet another electrifying helping of Korvette’s very distinct, some might say sobering, dispatches from beyond the cubicle to address both ‘crippling pet allergies’ (‘Cathouse’), a ‘blistering fear of going to the doctor’ (‘Health Plan’) and more… Honeys is arguably their most muscular and direct effort yet…”  (see interview November 14).  
Pitchfork premiered the first single, the aforementioned “Bathroom Laughter” as a “Best New Track,” and said, “…the rage boils over in typical fashion on leadoff track ‘Bathroom Laughter.’ It isn't easy to ascertain, exactly, what has captured the animus of Mr. Korvette this time around, as the band rips through an impossibly scuzzy, breakneck punk romp that reimagines previous single ‘False Jesii Pt. 2’ hopped up on gas station coffee” (see news story & tracks November 20).
 
An ode to feline allergy sufferers everywhere, “Cathouse” is a pummeling, 2 ½ minute punk rock jam that does not disappoint. "Matt Korvette wails with an emotional, pointillist rage, before itching, shivering, and searching for his smile" (see track debut Monday 14th January).” 

More on P**sed Jeans' Honeys:
The songs on Honeys are direct without being obtuse, evocative without being vague, and personal without being indulgent. They also rock like nobody's business. Do yourself a favour and forget all the claptrap you've heard about other bands delivering the goods. If you want bloodthirsty, you’ve got it… Sean McGuiness makes other rock drummers look like one of those dimwit longhairs with an involuntary smile playing a bongo by himself on the lawn behind a store that sells rain sticks. With a bass that bass that sounds like a train filled with stolen shopping carts crashing into an orchestra pit, Randy Huth doesn't waste a note. Bradley Fry doesn't look like a guitar hero; he looks a nice guy who would volunteer to help you reformat the drive on your laptop. But if he looked like he sounds he'd be wearing a necklace of human heads and even his reflection would turn you to stone. Matt Korvettescreams out observations on the tedium and absurdity of adulthood, delivered in a fashion similar to the way people must sound when being waterboarded. Sometimes the band sounds like hearing yourself being bashed over the head with a snow shovel… (read more at Sub Pop).
