Chris Bierden of Polica announces debut record as Invisible Boy
Invisible Boy is a project fronted by Chris Bierden, bassist for Polica and vital contributor to many Minneapolis-based projects. Bierden has been performing solo shows under the moniker Invisible Boy for the last 10 years. The name is taken from the title of a song by Vampire Hands, a beloved psych/punk band in which Bierden was a founding member. This is the first Invisible Boy effort at arranging the material into fully formed songs.
Bierden has spent the last five years touring the world as the bass player and back-up vocalist for Poliça. He recorded bass and vocals on the last two Har Mar Superstar records, and developed other projects of note such as Heavy Deeds, Pony Trash, and Bones & Beeker.
Invisible Boy is about life, death, and a child’s relationship to the cosmos. The music is meant to find empathy in a world that is often cold and indifferent. The album will be available digitally November 11th, with a vinyl release date shortly after. Listen to the album's opening track All the Kids here:
