Buffalo, NY quartet Pentimento has released a brand-new music video for “Almost Atlantic,” off their self-titled debut full-length record. This is the second music video from the record, following the video for “Circles” released last year.

Pentimento is being pressed to vinyl by Paper + Plastick Records, and the first pressing is going fast. It can be purchased in the label’s webstore. CD and cassette versions of the record can be purchased from Black Numbers.

The band received massive critical acclaim for its latest record, with Alternative Press beaming, “If Pentimento are part of the new school of punk, then there’s a lot to look forward to.”

Additionally, Paper + Plastick will make new Pentimento-themed skull heads available for sale at 5pm today. The skulls are miniature versions of the traditional Paper + Plastick skull head, and will be made available in a three-pack for $40. The resin toys are heavy and high-quality, and the colorways match the water/sun/sand variations of the Pentimento LP. The label is putting out these skull heads in different colorways for every LP it releases this year, and these are the second set available this year – after the black and white mixed After The Fall skull heads. The skulls are limited to only 18 packages.

Pentimento has also announced a set of June tour dates with Less Than Jake and Hostage Calm. The summer tour traverses up and down the East Coast. The band will also be supporting BoySetsFire for three dates in May. All tour dates can be seen below!

“If Pentimento are part of the new school of punk, then there’s a lot to look forward to.” –

“If you made your top 10 lists for albums of the year already, you’ve got some changes to make … it’s a mosaic of graceful punk, with gliding riffs and an enormous exuberance. They really did get the blend just right. “Subtle Words” really punctuates how much this band has to offer: the variety, the finesse and an unbridled energy that’s perfectly churned out here. They have moved from strength to strength and as dynamic as they were before, they are considerably better. This album highlights the best of their qualities as a band that went from promising to delivering beyond expectations. Like I said, make sure your list has room in its Top 10. Pentimento just came pounding on your door.” –

“This self-titled album plays along with the greatest hits of a genre … There is a promising mixture of inspiration and innovation on this album.” – AlterThePress

“Pentimento’s self-titled is better than majority of the albums released this year and it’s definitely one of the best debut albums that have been released in awhile … If the band keeps doing things the way that they are doing them now, they should have a huge, well-deserved future ahead of them.” – PropertyOfZack
