THE COCKY BITCHES - Members of Butthole Surfers, Cold, and Performance Artist The Baroness

In November 2018, Slope Records announced that Austin, Texas based Cocky Bitches, featuring members of Butthole Surfers and Cold, would be releasing their psychedelic blues debut LP, “Mercy."


The ten track album has already garnered attention from a notable indie rock legend.

“I really love that Cocky Bitches record! I love the barbaric nature of some of the songs. It’s like a cool soundtrack for the end of the world. I dig the production a great deal as well. The plodding nature of some of the songs make this an album you can really let flood over you. A soundtrack for a stalking serial killer or the theme for a psychotic rogue cop. The vocals are a treat as well, way cool! I think it’s one of the best things I’ve heard in quite some time. Excellent work!” – Buzz Osbourne – Melvins


Cocky Bitches are Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers, but also the RIAA Diamond certified producer who has worked with Sublime, John Paul Jones, Reverend Horton Heat, U2, Meat Puppets, Daniel Johnston) on guitar, bass, keyboards and programming, along with drummer Sam McCandless (Cold two RIAA Certified Gold and one RIAA Certified Platinum Albums) on drums and vocalist, and lyricist and performance artist, The Baroness.


The trio originally formed the band, Carny, in 2004 which later morphed into the Cocky Bitches. In 2017, the band released their debut 7-inch “TV’s Ok” on fetish pink vinyl with Slope Records.


On “Mercy,” The Cocky Bitches offer the listener no quarter, no mercy, and no escape. Through the erotic punk vocals of The Baroness, Leary’s rapture invoking psychedelic guitar, and the heavy beats of McCandless, there is a revolutionary swagger and libertine energy that leaves the listener with no safe word as The Cocky Bitches scream, beat, and grunt their way through this extraordinary debut record.
