"...a crazy mish-mash of styles and instruments that defies categorization, and it's so confident, so brassy and devil-may-care that it almost beggars belief..."

"...fait feu dans tous les sens."

The PepTides return with their third installment,
the grand spectacle romp FOR THOSE WHO HATE HUMAN INTERACTION.
25 eclectic songs in 3 Acts exploring the colossal theme of hate.
Leaping across the decades, The PepTides tour the peripherals of musical territories with racy beats,
baroque ballads, and twisted funk. Satirical pleas, laments, and sneers probe this dramedy invoking a
Broadway musical turned over its severed head. Sing-along while the whirling red emergency light
floods the cavernous scope of humanity's volatility and folly.
With the album releases of I'M A SPY (2007) and STEREO STEREO (2008),
The PepTides have been quietly garnering affection, such as CD Baby's 5 Star Editor's Pick ('masterful, genre-bending').
Instigator Claude Marquis widens the PepTides circle with vocalist DeeDee Butters playing titular roles
in the stage-less show that is FOR THOSE WHO HATE HUMAN INTERACTION.
It's an indie-audacious outing, for those who hate the ordinary.
