THE PB ARMY Release Sophomore Album, Announce Tour

Midwest heavy rockers THE PB ARMY have announced the release of "Spine for the Snapback", their second album. The 12-song effort will hit stores at the end of March on the Sin Klub Entertainment label, with North American distribution through Cargo Music. The follow-up to 2003's "Inebriates, Equivocators, and Mockers of the Devil Himself" was recorded in Chicago and Toledo and produced by Randy Wilson and THE PB ARMY. It marks the band's return to the scene after drummer/vocalist Keith Bergman's near-fatal aortic aneurysm and open-heart surgery in early 2004.

The band will head out for a three-week tour of the eastern U.S. in February. Upon their return to Ohio, THE PB ARMY will shoot a video for the song "A Hole In the New Leaf" and record their tracks for an upcoming split EP with THE HIGHGEARS. More touring will commence this summer.
