Throwing Muses: New Album, Stream & Video!

Yes, you read correctly: Throwing Muses have reunited and recorded a new album! Throwing Muses will release Purgatory/Paradise, their first album in a decade, in digital format on November 12th and in physical format on December 3rd. The physical set will include a deluxe 64-page art book along with the 32-track CD. If you’re too young to know who Throwing Muses are, they were one of the best and most influential female rock bands in the late 1980s/early ’90s. They were originally led by singer-songwriter stepsisters Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donelly. Hersh is the band’s solo frontwoman now. You can stream the track “Sleepwalking” and watch the freshly released video for “sunray venus” below.
