Purpleface is the new EP from Seattle band Throw Me The Statue. The four piece, led by founder/frontman Scott Reitherman, has spent the majority of 2008 touring the US and Europe supporting its critically acclaimed debut, Moonbeams. While on the road, TMTS has explored the depths of its sound, recreating its playful mystique, and emerging as a proficient and an even more engaging live act. Purpleface is the direct result of this time, albeit showing a bit of a softer side than its predecessor.
Purpleface features three brand new songs - "Ship," "Honey Bee," "That's How You Win" - and a reworking of the Moonbeams cut, "Written In Heart Signs, Faintly." The EP's standout track, "Ship," is an understated yet inventive gem that offers the listener yet another glimpse of Reitherman's prowess and range as a songwriter.
