Shut out of sold out North Coast, or wanna get in a little after party party?

PUJOL will be rocking Chi-town's Ace Bar this Saturday-9pm with 3 openers.   21+.   Just $8.

PUJOL, the animated and charismatic band of prolific frontman, Daniel Pujol, will be in Chicago at Ace Bar this Saturday, September 1st. As Spinner praised of a recent show, PUJOL "turned in a fiery performance...Really, just get involved now, because these guys are phenomenal."

Album Stream On Rolling Stone

Based out of Nashville, PUJOL bring a gritty intensity to the stage, one that builds on the catchy, intellectually driven rock and roll anthems of their fantastic debut album, UNITED STATES OF BEING, out now on Saddle Creek. Seeing what Rolling Stone calls the "scuzzy, catchy tracks that combine youthful energy with lyrical precociousness" played live takes the music to another level, with the band's dynamic, raw energy catapulting the sound around the room.

PUJOL arose from the ashes of MEEMAW in 2009 to carry on the Nashvillian ideals of DIY and self construction through adeptly crafted songs based firmly in meaningful lyrical content. It’s these motives and songs that have taken PUJOL from the basements of Middle Tennessee to stages across the country and have garnered notice from more than just those with their ear to the ground.

Releasing a plethora of singles and cassettes over the past two years on Jack White’s Third Man Records, Nashville’s Infinity Cat Recordings and Turbo Time Records among others, PUJOL has now partnered with Omaha's Saddle Creek. Following the critically praised Nasty, Brutish, and Short EP from last year, PUJOL finally has an official debut full-length ready for unveiling. UNITED STATES OF BEING continues on with PUJOL’s doctrine of trying hard everyday and ventures lyrically to a place that most contemporaries fail to reach. Addressing the current status of twenty-somethings in America’s present and capturing their shared dispositions, the album throws the brakes on "catharsis," and begs the listener to decide for themselves how to answer the robot's last question, "What is love?" With riff-oriented guitar playing reminiscent of greats like The Replacements and Beetlejuice-esque earworms, PUJOL now sits atop the fringes of the rock and roll and DIY vernacular.

Whether this strange world chooses to embrace PUJOL is of no matter, as the prolific frontman will continue to carry on as always - Taking Care of Business 24/7. The adrenalized, infectious debut full-length, UNITED STATES OF BEING, is out now on Saddle Creek.
