Tampa, Florida’s Permanent Makeup will release its debut album The Void… It Creeps via the New Granada label on February 26th.  MAGNET Magazine has premiered the album’s first single “Not A Riot,” available for free download now.

Formed in 2010, bassist Chris Nadeau (of noise-punk band Blast & The Detergents), his wife/drummer Susan Dickson, and guitarist James Bess (ex-Dumbwaiters, Insect Joy), played their first show together as Permanent Makeup without having ever practiced. The venue was a doctor’s office, and the mostly improvised show, featuring audience members on vocals reading infomercial ad copy, was deemed a success.

Calling the underground punk and art scene their home, Permanent Makeup spent the following two years cutting its teeth in true DIY fashion by playing house shows on self-booked tours of the U.S. and recording and releasing home-packaged EPs.

Fans of the band have since identified elements in Permanent Makeup’s sound that remind of fuzzed-out garage-psych, the writings of author Phillip K. Dick, sci-fi surf and avant-electronic music, and the content of pamphlets handed out on street corners by homeless schizophrenics.

The Void… It Creeps, the first official label release from Permanent Makeup, is scheduled for release on February 26th.  See the band set the record free via an album trailer here: and on tour next month (see dates below.)

Permanent Makeup is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
