Lil Tits might prove George Carlin's point that "tits" almost works better as an affectionate nickname than a swear word, but the music this trio makes together is anything but cutesy. The band's new EP 7 Year Bleed is a vicious onslaught of filthy punk tunes that carry more weight than their brief running times suggest. You've got to hand it to a band who sustain a heavy instrumental intro for one and a half minutes of a two-minute song, as Lil Tits do on "Peaking."

It's hard not to think of the Misfits' classic Halloween punk when listening to songs like "Slayride," but Lil Tits aim for more than your standard horror creep-out. The name of this EP potentially has numerous implications: if the "seven-year itch" is what you call the urge to cheat on your spouse after seven years of marriage, then maybe the bleed is the urge to slaughter them after the same amount of time; or, given that the most iconic moment from the film The Seven Year Itch involves looking at a woman's underwear (remember when Marilyn's unmentionables were on full display at gargantuan proportions on Michigan Avenue?), maybe the bleed implies chronic menstruation as a sort of "fuck you" to the male gaze.

Either way, it's a good name for a fierce record that you can stream below or purchase on Bandcamp. Lil Tits will also play the Hideout on December 4, opening for Strawberry Jacuzzi and Earth Girls.
