PINKISH BLACK: STREAMING NEW ALBUM ‘BOTTOM OF THE MORNING’ IN FULL VIA NOISEY!

Experimental post-punk duo PINKISH BLACK have just shared a full stream of their upcoming full length Bottom of the Morning via an in depth interview feature at Noisey.  The album is utterly distinctive, straddling horror-soundtrack atmospherics and doom-infused groove to create something wholly original. Hear for yourself via Noisey – listen to the album and read the in-depth interview with the band HERE.

PINKISH BLACK’s Bottom of the Morning and THE GREAT TYRANT‘s The Trouble With Being Born are due out 10/30 on Relapse and can be preordered physically via Relapse Mailorder HERE. Digital versions are available via Bandcamp AT THIS LOCATION. PINKISH BLACK is also heading out on a series of US dates with Relapse labelmates ZOMBI this November in support of Bottom of the Morning. You can view / RSVP below:

Pinkish Black Tour Dates

Info/Bio:

The early history of experimental duo PINKISH BLACK is as mournful and tumultuous as the band’s music. The Fort Worth, TX band originally formed in 2005 as a threepiece doom/jazz project known as THE GREAT TYRANT, but THE GREAT TYRANT never got the chance to release any music – in February 2010, midway through a battle with technical problems, the band’s bassist Tommy Atkins tragically committed suicide, bringing the album’s recording and production processes to a halt.

After Atkins’s passing, remaining members Jon Teague (drums/synths) and Daron Beck (vocals/synths/ keyboards) set out to redefine current conceptions of heavy music with an unorthodox and forward-thinking synth- driven approach, furthering the work they had started with THE GREAT TYRANT. The band, now a duo, changed their name to PINKISH BLACK in 2010, and released their self-titled debut that same year on Handmade Birds. Pinkish Black was critically acclaimed, as was the band’s 2013 follow-up on Century Media, Razed to the Ground.

Since Razed to The Ground, PINKISH BLACK have solidified both their confidence and their direction – they signed to Relapse in December 2014, and have steadily refined their songwriting and style over the course of the last two years. Though usually associated most closely with the metal scene, PINKISH BLACK have demonstrated an unflinching capacity to dip their toes in all sorts of disparate musical markets, from doom metal and industrial to post-punk and no-wave. October 2015 will see the release of PINKISH BLACK’s newest opus, Bottom of the Morning, a 7-track dark music journey that runs the full gamut of influences PINKISH BLACK have touched on in the past as well as many new experimentations added to their palette.
