Paint It Black – Details zum neuen Album
Die aus Pennsylvania kommende Hardcore Punk Band Paint It Black haben ein paar Details über das nachfolge Album ihres 2005 erschienenen „Paradise“ Album verlauten lassen:
This album will be co-produced by J. Robbins and Oktopus (aka Alap Momin). The initial tracking with be done in Baltimore at the Magpie Cage by Mr. Robbins, who in addition to recording/producing our last album, „Paradise,“ and being the founding member and primary songwriter of Jawbox, has numerous production credits to his name, including the soon-to-be-released new Modern Life is War album, the Black Cross full-length, and emo-pop masterpeices such as Braid, Jets to Brazil, and Promise Ring……After putting initial tracks to tape in Baltimore, we’ll relocate to DeadVerse Studions in Northern NJ for overdubs, sonic tinkering, conceptual overhauling, low-end theory, and mixing.
For those of you who are getting worried that this is sounding too wierd or experimental, rest assured that the backbone of this album is still straight-ahead Hardcore Punk, equally inspired by Minor Threat, Poison Idea, Black Flag, Ignition, Embrace, Naked Raygun, with lyrics inspired by both political frustration and personal & redemption. The songs are still short and to the point. We just feel that Hardcore is always at risk of getting stale and aesthetically rigid, and feel a responsibilty to keep pushing it into new territory. We can’t wait to get started.
