New York – Max Hershenow and Lizzy Plapinger, who make up MS MR (pronounced “miz mister”), the self-described soul fuzz and electroshock duo, have returned with a fresh track! The all-new single is titled “Painted” and comes off their imminent sophomore record, expected to be released this July via Columbia Records. The sonically scintillating new song will be available for downloading starting, April 7. The wait to hear the music is over though, as fans can listen to “Painted” today. Check out the audio below!
MS MR have also unveiled a slew of underplay headlining shows for this spring, with stops that will include performances in Brooklyn, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. The New York-based pair first gave their fans a taste of what’s to come when they played some new material during this year’s SXSW Music Festival. Supplementing these headlining shows, MS MR are on the bill for both the Lollapalooza festival (in both Chicago and Berlin) and the Osheaga Festival in Montreal, Canada. (MS MR’s last visit to Chicago proved to be quite the show!)

The debut’s single’s were individual hits as well, with the track “Hurricane” sitting on the chart for almost 30 weeks –breaking into the Top 10.

Among so many live performances, MS MR have been fortunate enough to grace many high profile stages, including: Austin City Limits, Coachella, Bonnaroo and Governors Ball Outside Lands.
