Pinkish Black Debut LP... now available from Handmade Birds.

Simply put, this one of the best albums you will hear this year-- we really mean this decade, but will try to maintain some modesty. Monstrous doomwaves of texture and deathrock coming from just two people that crushes in both a live setting and in the studio. Though this is the debut full length from a relatively new outfit, the decades spent refining their art in various other bands (including dark Denton icons Pointy Shoe Factory, and the wall of sound that is Yeti) has all culminated into a refined, dark opus, that is utterly the most innovative and refreshing music you'll have heard this side of Suicide.

From the ominous cloud of post melodic sludge (Bodies In Tow) to the raging fanaticism akin to the best moments of classic The Birthday Party or Filth era Swans (Fall Down), Pinkish Black offer a true homage to the album as entity. Bow to the sonic shrine that has been so carefully constructed. Weep and rage. This is the sound of true musicianship from two people that live for their craft. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

From Ft. Worth, TX, Pinkish Black is Daron Beck (Pointy Shoe Factory) and Jon Teague (Yeti), continuing the musical evolution they began as The Great Tyrant (with the late Tommy Atkins). Their music is in turns abrasive, turbulent, darkly melodic, and hauntingly beautiful -- the soundtrack for a fever dream. Fans of Suicide, Magma, and Scott Walker should lend an ear. Mastered by James Plotkin. 

Edition: 250 LP, 180 gram. First 100 orders get a limited 5.25" Floppy Disk with an exclusive Pinkish Black track, and a download code for a PB Christian Death cover and digital copy of the album.
