Century Media Records has issued that the 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.
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.
