Fort Worth-based duo, PINKISH BLACK, has finished recording their upcoming album and Century Media debut, set tentatively for a spring release. Self-produced by PINKISH BLACK’s own Jon Teague and Daron Beck, this currently untitled full-length was recorded at The Echo Lab with Matt Barnhart handling engineer duties. Mastering will be done by James Plotkin.
To hear some new tracks from the record, fans can catch PINKISH BLACK live on March 7th in Denton, TX at NX35 where the duo will be direct support for EYEHATEGOD. Additional tour dates will also be announced soon, so stay tuned!
PINKISH BLACK is the continuation of THE GREAT TYRANT, a three-piece that released one LP following the passing of their bass player, Tommy Atkins. When Atkins died, Teague and Beck decided to change the band’s name and remain a two-piece, yet still retain TGT’s ground-breaking sound. With no stringed instruments, the duo now relies on aura and raw emotions to obtain their unique heaviness. Their resulting effort, PINKISH BLACK’s self-titled debut (Handmade Birds Records), features seven tracks of dark, haunting deathrock–and was named one of the best albums of 2012 by Brooklyn Vegan.com, Stereogum.com, Pitchfork.com, and countless others.
