Killer Texan garage punk band Wax Museums release “Eye Times”

North Texas’ lovable misfits the Wax Museums return after a 3 year hiatus
with an album full of nerdy, sexually frustrated, killer punk anthems –
Eye Times is out June 28, 2011 via Chicago’s Trouble In Mind.
.
Today they premiere album track “Sunburn” on Impose, who call their sound “high music for low people.”
Their idiot savant rock is wedged between Milo Aukerman’s brilliant simplicity and The Spits savage brilliance.  Their music celebrates all things simple, and 97% of the time, that turns out to be a good thing.
.
Grab the “Sunburn” MP3 and prepare to get low.
.
There’s a fine line between stupid and brilliant, and Wax Museums are sitting right on it, grinning like maniacs.

More on Wax Museums
Wait, have the Wax Museums MATURED?!?!?! After a 3 year hiatus north TX’s lovable misfits (who share members with The Bad Sports and Mind Spiders) are back with a four- headed thirteen eyed monster of an album that while still slightly awkward, is undeniably focused and endearing. ‘Eye Times’ is a musical step forward with moments of glammy art-rockness that proves once and for all these clowns ain’t just one-joke jerks. ‘Mosquito Enormo’ swarms and stings with it’s way-out delay pedal induced chaos and ‘Bruiser’ proves the Wax Museums still just write killer punk anthems. The charming nerd-o aesthetic that was so prevalent on the early singles and first LP remain, but NOW with added sexual frustration, ‘Breakfast for Dinner’ just very well might be the Wax Museum’s “Me So Horny“ … or something.
