Paint Fumes have survived a decade of being in Paint Fumes. No small feat for a group that’s released 3 albums for 2 distinct luminary labels, swaying their way between opposite ends on their garage punk pendulum. Evolution occurred steadily from their earliest primitivism to more tuneful rockers. Road dogs when allowed to be, they toured exhaustively (including stints with legends King Khan & BBQ Show and Shannon & the Clams). Throughout, they survived more hospital stays—not to mention near-death experiences— than advisable by even the most nihilistic breed of rock’n’roll life-or-deathers. And yet now, after all the years and rigmarole, they’ve never sounded this good! 
Real Romancer, Paint Fumes’ 4th LP (and first for Dig! Records (US) and Bachelor Records (EU)) is a whole new world of glam stompin’, duel-guitar shreddin’ sounds taken to anthemic heights previously uncharted by this born too loose group. If leader of the pack, Elijah Von Cramon’s  description of the band as “panic attack punk and power pop nightmares” rings true, this is Paint Fumes’ KBD-benzo treat-all for a 12 song long wet dream.
