Pinkish Black

As discussed, Texas duo Pinkish Black are set to release their new album, Razed To The Ground, on September 17 via Century Media (the followup to their Handmade Birds debut), and the whole thing is now available to stream. Though they've got ties to the metal scene and elements of doom, it's really the goth/darkwave vibes that stick out most, and this should appeal to a pretty diverse audience. Check it out now, via Pitchfork, and you can also listen to two of its tracks below.

As you may know, Pinkish Black are set to head out on a BV/IO-presented tour with another band on the fringes of the metal scene, Kylesa. Also on the tour is Sierra, who recently released their debut full length, Pslip, on Kylesa's own Retro Futurist label (stream it below). The tour hits NYC on October 25 at Saint VItus, and tickets for that show are still available.

The tour dates are listed, along with streams, below...


Pinkish Black - "Ashtray Eyes"

Pinkish Black - "Kites & Vulture"
