A few months back I posted about a rad compilation featuring bands covering Misfits tracks. Well, the folk at CVLT Nation have come through again and have released a new compilation featuring covers of one of my all-time favorite bands: Joy Division. Some of the stand-out bands are Pinkish Black, Old Witch and Arctic Flowers, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Check out a full stream of the compilation below. Continue reading
The Texan post-punk/electronic/whateveryoufeeltheneedtocallit duo Pinkish Black are currently streaming their sophomore album Razed to the Ground over at Pitchfork. The album officially hits shelves next Tuesday September 17th but who the heck likes to wait? Head over to Pitchfork to stream this trippy, macabre masterpiece.
The Texan post-punk/experimental duo Pinkish Black have premiered yet another new track from their forthcoming sophomore effort, Razed to the Ground, which is due out on September 16th. Roadburn has premiered the new track, entitled “Ashtray Eyes”, which is a enormous eight minute melodic, electronic interwoven opus that would make the likes Depeche Mode very proud. You can stream the new track after the break if you so desire.
Kylesa have announced a new U.S. tour that will take place during October in support of their new record Ultraviolet. The band will see support from the likes of Pinkish Black and Sierra throughout the tour’s duration. Keep reading to check out the full touring schedule.
Texas based industrial noise rock duo Pinkish Black will release their new album, entitled Razed to the Ground, on September 17th via Century Media. The new track is the synth heavy, gothic stunner “Kites and Vultures” that’s one part Bauhaus, one part Godflesh, one part Killing Joke and three parts badass. You can stream the track over at Stereogum or after the jump. You can also stream the previously released title track at Stereogum as well.
One album that I listened to this year a few times but never found myself enthralled by is the new self-titled album by Pinkish Black. It’s not that Pinkish Black is a bad band, they are great at what they do but they are not my taste. It now seems that this isn’t the case for Century Media Records, who have added the band to their roster. Century has a tendency to take in bands that aren’t extreme but are still good bands. I hope Pinkish Black find a nice, dark place on their new label. The bands new album is available now via Handmade Birds and you can stream it after the jump as well as check out their upcoming tour dates. Continue reading
