The Purrs

Contact artist


The Purrs formed in Seattle in the year 2000. The band seems to
think of themselves as more of an anti rock-n roll-band than a true
rock outfit. In their minds, the Purrs do not have enough nights in
jail, groupies, or trashed hotel rooms. However, their hundreds of gigs
(supporting the likes of Okkervil River, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Wrens, Jesse Sykes, Holy Fuck, and Film School),
multiple national tours, weekend coast to coast jaunts to play CMJ,
broken down vans, record labels, not record labels, heavy rotation by
influential radio stations such as KEXP, WOXY, and SIRIUS, notorious
after parties and a semi-rabid following tell a more rock-n-roll story.
