Latest Nashville Pussy News
Below is our complete Nashville Pussy news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
American quartet Nashville Pussy is set to present new studio recording "Up The Dosage" on January 21st, 2014 in North America, in Germany on January 17th, and the rest of Europe on January 20th. The following press release was issued about the album:
"Up the Dosage picks up seamlessly where their 2009 release From Hell To Texas left off. And what is more: their five-year hiatus seems to have done frontman Blaine Cartwright (vocals, guitar) and Ruyter Suys (guitars) good - all 13 new songs (plus two bonus tracks) sound like they were catapulted into to the public from a fountain of youth, rocking in typical Pussy style."
Blaine Cartwright is proud about the new material and comments: "None of the previous Nashville Pussy albums have been as diverse and at the same time consistent. Everything sounds even bigger and better, yet raw and authentic through and through. This is our Back In Black!"

Bassist Karen Cuda of Nashville Pussy has posted the following message online about parting ways with the band:
"Today feels a bit surreal as I officially announce my resignation from Nashville Pussy. Over the last eight years I've invested much blood, sweat, and tears in to the band.
"It's been an extraordinarily difficult decision for me to make, but I feel it's time for me to move on and explore the next chapter of rock n roll and my life. I am sincerely and wholeheartedly grateful for the experiences, the stages, the amazing albums we've made, the globetrotting, the laughter, the tears, the parties, and most of all, the fans, that I've had the pleasure of sharing with Nashville Pussy.
"Thanks to all for the amazing opportunity! I will forever cherish it. Rest assured I will continue rocking, so keep your ears peeled! Best of luck to Nashville Pussy as they also move on into their next chapter.

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This week Nashville Pussy guitarist Ruyter shares their own tale from the
Nashville Pussy was playing the Electric Lounge in Austin, Texas. Our drummer Jeremy's awesome parents were in attendance and his father doesn't ever swear so Blaine told the audience he'd asked Jeremy's dad if he minded that we'd be cussing that night on stage and Jeremy's father responded, "you should cuss even more tonight." Everyone laughed. Especially Jeremy's parents cause Blaine just made that story up on the spot.
The place was sold out and packed solid. The stage was only about 3 feet off the floor and some drunk woman in front of me was laying half way on the stage and grabbing at my monitor. She kept clinging to it like a life preserver and kind of jerking it back and forth across the stage with the beat and driving me Nuts! I was about to boot her in the head and get her the fuck off my monitor when I noticed the guy behind her had her skirt up over her back and was f*cking her from behind. I remember looking at the happy couple then quickly scanning the crowd to find Jeremy's parents standing at the back with big smiles on their faces.
That's my best Pit story. Fun for all ages.
Nashville Pussy is currently on tour in the apparently aptly named Parental Advisory tour with Green Jelly and Psychostick. Check out a report from one stop here and an interview with Ruyter here.
Check back every Tuesday for more pit stories.
The fantastically named band Nashville Pussy likes to be on tour. So much so that they must have spent at least twice as many nights on the road as they have at home since they began playing their dirty, bluesy rock back in 1996. Out on their most recent tour, the “Parental Advisory Tour,” along with comedy rock/metal outfits Green Jello and Psychostick, Nashville Pussy is bringing their rolling party to a club near you! And if you like rock and booze, or if you like just one of those things, you want to see this show really bad. More...
Underground comedy/metal band Psychostick has announced that they will take part in the Parental Advisory Tour with Green Jelly and Nashville Pussy. The tour kicks off in Orlando, FL, on March 25th and will run through June 7th.
“Our fans have been suggesting a tour with Green Jelly since forever,” says Psychostick vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey. “Having Nashville Pussy headline the whole thing will only make this tour even better. We’re looking forward to the run and think our fans will really dig it.”
This tour marks the debut of Psychostick’s new bassist, Matt Kyzmeck. “Billy Rymer, the drummer from Dillinger Escape Plan, recommended Matt to us,” says Psychostick drummer Alex Preiss. “He [Matt] passed with flying colors and we're very excited to bring him aboard!” Former bassist Jimmy Grant left Psychostick in December 2009 for undisclosed reasons.
Best known for the song “Beer Is Good…. And Stuff,” Psychostick spent much of 2009 on tour promoting their latest album, “Sandwich.” The band released a video for “Girl Directions” in December 2009. Plans for after the Parental Advisory Tour are simple – more touring. Here are the latest Psychostick tour dates:
March 22: Sauget, IL @ Pops

Nashville Pussy recently experienced some drama on their tour bus in Europe. A tour diary from guitarist Ruyter Suys reads as follows: "Okay!! Day motherfucking one! Yee haw! Back in Europe, back in France!! Kick ass show in Strasbourg. Stellar audience! The Supersuckers rock, but have to cut their set short so Dan Bolton can go back to the airport to go through customs to get his luggage that the airline has lost. You would think the rock gods had their fun? No! We fall asleep on the bus to the whiskey laden dreams that is our vocation only to be awoken to the tune of 'FIRE!!! Everyone grab your passports and get off the bus!' We follow suit. Stood on the side of the road, somewhere between France and Switzerland watching the billows of smoke churn out the rear end of our fancy new bus. Luckily there was no actual flames, but enough smoking to cause us to stop tout de suit!
"A tourist bus full of children stopped for our sorry asses and kindly decided to drive us as far as the Swiss border where now, we wait. For what? We don't really know. A new bus has been dispached to transport our gear and hopefully pick us up as well, untill then Nashville Pussy has taken up residence at the French/Swiss border and will be sleeping on the curb until we are admited into the country, with guitars and vehicle. We remain, rocking, though mostly in spirit. A slightly smoke scented spirit, but rocking none the less! Excelsior! More...
Atlanta's NASHVILLE PUSSY has issued the following update:
"So, we made it down to Austin to record our new album! We're out at Willie Nelson's studio layin' down some rockin tracks! The crew at the studio really know their shit and everything's sounding huge! It's beautiful out here and despite how hard we're working, rather relaxing. We're staying right on a lake and we've also seen a bunch of wildlife just in the two days we've been here; deer, owls, vultures, rabbits, opposums, and other vermin! It's nice to be somewhat isolated from the city so we can really focus and make a bad-ass record. ANOTHER bad-ass record, I mean. And...don't forget, girls and boys, that we're hitting the road in a couple weeks when we're done layin down some tracks. Coming to a city near you!"
