Century Media Records signs Pinkish Black

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 11:26 AM PT


Official press release:

Fort Worth based duo, Pinkish Black, announces their signing to Century Media Records. Pinkish Black is the duo Jon Teague on drums and vocalist/synthesizer, Daron Beck. They are the continuation of The Great Tyrant, a three piece that released one LP posthumously following the passing of their bass player, Tommy Atkins. The Great Tyrant was on its way to redefining what heavy music was. When Atkins died, the only changes were the name and how to achieve this as a two piece, the latter being no small feat.

Pinkish Black's last, self-titled album, released on Handmade Birds, featured seven tracks of dark, intense and at times, haunting songs. As one of the heaviest bands of late to feature no stringed instruments, Pinkish Black uses aura and emotions to attain what other bands (and a lot of Orange Amps and down-tuned guitars) fail to do.

The band is currently touring and working on a new record, expected to be recorded by the end of the year.

"We're excited at the possibilities that working with Century Media presents to us, and that lots of touring and recording will follow." - Jon Teague and Daron Beck

Pinkish Black

Are you kidding me? That is the name of your band. Pinkish Black? Gay goth kids are stoked, I suppose. Actually, never mind, I think even they think this is a pretty awful band name.

Not sure which is worse the name Pinkish Black or the name of their previous label "Handmade Birds", very metal!

Their band name was influenced by the color of my phlegm. People aren't even trying anymore.

They sound like the Cure vs. a less talented Black Sabbath. Not bad.

Century Media used to sign good bands. Not so much now. Waint for these latest gaytards to be gone in the next 6 months.

11/20/2012 5:49:35 PM
Does CM lose bets to other record labels to sign crap bands?

11/20/2012 6:52:23 PM

This guy sure is smart and witty, definitely what you would expect from someone in a band with a name as clever as "Pinkish Black".

Smart, why use Orange Amps when you can use Pinkish Black amps? These guys got it figured out.

Wow, what a bunch of morons posting here. Pinkish Black is doomy and heavy as fck. They're name being Pinkish Black seems to confuse people, which makes it even cooler. I'd call it goth sludge.

i already posted here back when this story broke and was surprised how many dumbshits posted negative things based soleley on this bands name...well turns out they got their name from the color of the blood they saw after their bass player killed himself!

this band is ten times heavier, dirtier, sludgier, and scarier than any boring ass Lamb of God or All That Remains bullshit.
