Fort Worth-based duo PINKISH BLACK has finished recording its new album for a tentative spring release via Century Media Records. Produced by PINKISH BLACK's own Jon Teague and Daron Beck, the as-yet-untitled untitled CD was recorded at The Echo Lab, with Matt Barnhart handling engineer duties. Mastering will be handled by James Plotkin.
To hear some new tracks from the record, fans can catch PINKISH BLACK live on March 7 in Denton, Texas at NX35 where the duo will be direct support for EYEHATEGOD. Additional tour dates will also be announced soon.
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 THE GREAT TYRANT's groundbreaking 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.
