Cherub Announces New Album "Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence" & Share First Single

Cherub Bleed Gold Piss Excellence

One of our favorite duos, Nashville-based Cherub, are back with with some exciting news after non-stop touring and festival circuit domination. They have a brand new, full-length album on the way titled Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence, which is quite the name. 

Along with the news, we’re treated with the record’s lead lead single of the same name, and it's also quite the track. We hear an expansion on their signature sexy sound complete with a more funky punch of talkbox vocal and a beastly bassline. Jordan cleverly offers hilarious commentary instead of a verse with a line midway through showing he’s hit quite the humorous point of his career.

"This is supposed be where another verse goes, but who cares, verses don't matter, you don't matter either, I don't matter either, well so what's the point.."

We've been replaying this track and couldn't be more excited for the rest of the album. Stream below and enjoy!

TSIS Secret B2B Sets Announced At Electric Forest + Top 5 Collab Sets You Didn’t Know Happened At The Forest

Electric Forest Back to back

There are very few things better than a surprise performance at a music festival and Electric Forest's 2016 edition is set to be chock full of 'em. TSIS will once again be setting up its 'Meet & Greet' booth, but also be hosting its first-ever "Secret Set" to be part of the official lineup. 

Mark your festival schedule. It will be taking place Friday night from 1am to 3:15am (technically Saturday morning). Madness will ensue in the Forest on The Observatory Stage and be full of back-to-back sets you won't want to miss. To celebrate, we've included some of the most exciting collaborations we've helped curate or witnessed in person over the past few years!

Let's rewind it back to 2012 for one of TSIS' proudest curated moments where we helped assemble a lineup featuring GRiZ, Gramatik and Dom of Big Gigantic, unknowingly creating the enigmatic supergroup now known as Big Grizmatik. They then returned for EF 2013 to be one of the festival's headliners and played a massive set at the Sherwood Court Stage.

Back in 2013, Gramatik was hard at work with the talented musicians who formed Exmag, a new live project they collectively debuted at the Good Life Stage for a late-night TSIS secret set.

One of the most insane back-to-back sets occurred between Skrillex, Snails, Datsik, 12th Planet, Crizzly and Vaski in 2015 at the Good Life Stage. The six acts managed to throw down pure mayhem for 3+ hours. That small white tent felt like a sweaty club by sunrise when the chaos ended. 



Colorado band String Cheese Incident has been behind the festival since day one, bringing jam culture into the mix with an impressive six sets every year. They've established a reputation in the forest for their surprises and certainly outdid themselves in 2015 when they brought out bass king Skrillex, but not to DJ. Instead he whipped out a guitar and strummed through two covers of The Doors, taking on classics "Break On Through (To The Other Side)" and "LA Woman."

One of the most unexpected collaborative sets at Electric Forest occurred in 2015 after the official festivities wrapped up for the night. The TSIS team joined Dominic + Jeremy of Big Gigantic and Jason of Cherub as they headed to their RV which was parked by the front of the festival entrance. The crew set up on top of two trailers for the ultimate Ship Fam-spirited rager where thousands gathered for a rare hour-long set.

Don't miss out on the secret fun bound to go down in 2016, including TSIS' secret back-to-back sets. Enjoy!

Even before the now infamous TSIS secret closing party with Big Gigantic and Cherub, which took place on top of RV’s in General Admission camping the last night of Electric Forest, Thissongissick.com already had two other epic secret sets under our belts that will go down as festival folklore for years to come.

We were slated to curate the “Good Life” stage located in VIP camping on Friday night and amassed a collection of bass brethren to throw down a very rare b2b2b2b2b2b take-over that kicked off at 3AM. After decimating the main stage crowd with a close out set, OWSLA head honcho and Jack Ü co-captain Skrillex lead the charge and was joined behind the decks by Firepower Records ace Datsik, SMOG general and last minute festival addition 12th Planet, vomitstep aficionado Snails, pizza-gang advocate and crunk-step innovator Crizzly, and dubstep maverick Vaski

All six DJs/producers took the stage together across four CDJs. The song selection was nothing short of organized chaos as bass banger after bass banger melted the faces of all 1000+ attendee’s that packed the very intimate tent till just past 6AM. 

Recreating something as stacked and intimate as this set was a daunting challenge, but a series of blessed events opened the door for another secret set Saturday night. This time marked our first return to the luminous forest since the iconic 2012 TSIS secret set that gave birth to Big Grizmatik (Big Gigantic + GRiZ + Gramatik). One of the most forward thinking producers in the game Mr. Carmack was chosen as man to start the night off, and ended up delivering much more.

As we commandeered the Grand Artique stage around 4:30AM, Mr. Carmack took a seat and went into the mix for 4 hours and played the perfect blend of soul, funk gritty bass, hip-hop and more. He not only unloaded an uncountable amount of unreleased originals and remixes from himself and friends, but then moved into mo-town hits, R&B classics and more for one of the most eclectic sets anyone in attendance had ever experienced. 

There was a cast of other artists from the festival that were set to follow, but Mr. Carmack was nailing the vibe so perfectly that they allowed him to keep going.

Then, something magical happened toward the middle / end of Mr. Carmack's set. Newcomer hip-hop MC Honeycomb started beatboxing over the producer's funky beats. Having picked up on the vibes from the sidelines, the two were soon accompanied on stage by The Fungineer members Lafa Taylor, Kyrian Bobeerian and Honey LaRochelle, who delivered an unbelievable display of vocal talents alongside bass player Simply B (Brandon B Barker). It became a completely organic live band that even saw Carmack switch from Traktor to drum duties.

This unintentionally became one of the most outrageous and unexpected live musical experiences we've been apart of yet, and was further enhanced by a pristine sunrise that spread throughout the forest. 

To be completely honest, we aren't sure if any other festival could house something so special and secretive compared to what the Thissongissick secret sets at Electric Forest became this year. We'd like to thank the Electric Forest team for the opportunity to craft these very special parties, and both Ryan Hug and Michael Silberman for their added assistantce. But most importantly, we'd love to thank those who attended these unforgetable performances with us so late in the evening. You best believe that 2016 will see another round of secret sets sponored by Thissongissick, so start planning your Electric Forest trip now! Enjoy
