"One of the most exciting XMAS albums of the year...“She Gave Me Hell For Christmas” belongs on every radio station RIGHT NOW, disc jockeys. If you work for a radio station, add it to the playlist permanently, returning every December along with the Bing and the Mannheim and the Guaraldi. –– throw a Jingle Bell Rock at this album and you will hit a potential new holiday classic."
- Rolling Stone (Connor Ratliff)

WHO OR WHAT ARE THE X-MISSES?
We're a twisted Christmas supergroup anchored in the sounds of 60s girl groups and 70s rock musicals. Our debut album "Christmas Reminiscences" is out now!
WHY AM I EXCITED?
You're excited because you're tired of hearing the same Christmas music every year! You're tired of songs about sugarplum fairies and winter wonderlands. You want something different; something with dark humor that explores the underbelly of Christmas: a holiday that can never live up to its hype. We often don't get want we wanted or we do and it doesn't fulfill us like we thought it would. You want to hear songs about the irony of bad things happening on a day that is supposed to be the best day of the year.
THAT SOUNDS HILARIOUS
That's not a question, but it actually IS hilarious! Are you single?
