Featured Band: Dirty on Purpose

A great tragedy occured on New Year's Eve, 2008. Dirty on Purpose disbanded. Just because this shoegaze-fusion group from Brooklyn disbanded though, doesn't mean we shouldn't honor the memory of the awesome albums and tracks they released. Their sole full-length, Hallelujah Sirens, came out in 2006 filled with lush guitars that blended My Bloody Valentine and The Smashing Pumpkins much in the same way Silversun Pickups is doing now. After the LP, the group put out a series of free singles on RCRD LBL, before finally shutting down operations at the end of '08. The members can be found in their side-projects (though now sole-projects, I suppose), so all we can do is hope for some new material that harkens back to what Dirty on Purpose accomplished.
