Texas duo PINKISH BLACK have entered the studio to record their fourth full-length album and follow-up to 2015’s Bottom of the Morning. "Concept Unification" is being recorded at Cloudland Recording Studio in Fort Worth, TX and will be released later in 2018. They'll be stopping through RVA at Strange Matter yet again (after killer shows at Nile, Bandito's, Smatter and even The National opening for Ghost) in April with an amazing lineup including Fredricksburg head-rock/shoegaze veterans CEREMONY (ex-Skywave, not that other one) and electronic noise/darkwave/experimental collective SACRAMENCE will be opening up. For those unfamiliar, PB is one of the most interesting and far-thinking experimental duos currently active; a group that displays an unflinching capacity to dip their toes in all sorts of disparate musical markets, from doom metal and industrial to post-punk, no-wave and beyond!

Pinkish Black
Pinkish Black
American experimental rock band formed in 2011, shortly after the suicide of Tommy Wayne Atkins, bassist of the predecessor band, The Great Tyrant. The remaining duo continued as Pinkish Black, with drums and synthesizer only.
Ceremony
Ceremony
love songs - that's what Ceremony are famous for.
Well known for its outstanding mixture of aggressive, rock and shoe-gaze the band keeps the spirit of the legendary band skywave (John Fedowitz, Oliver Ackermann, Paul Baker) going.

Ceremony was formed in 2004. Since then the band toured the East Coast/USA several times and played two week in Tokyo/Japan. Moreover Ceremony played some very successful shows in Germany, Italy, Denmark, The Netherlands and France.

Ceremony is always mentioned in the same sentence with other well known bands like Screen Vinyl Image, A Place To Bury Strangers and The Misfits. But only Ceremony has that irresistible sound reminding of 60's girl groups, 80's pop and 90's shoe-gaze. Fans all over the world love Ceremony for outlining profound feelings we've all experienced in their catchy melodies. It's about love!
Sacramence
Sacramence
Sacramence is the moniker of S.Jordan of Richmond, VA. Starting as a black metal project, Sacramence has since strayed from traditional instrumentation and established itself within a more experimental sound, performing "Industrial" music accomplished through electronic and acoustic means. Thematically, Sacramence explores the darkness of humanity through the subjects of Religion, Existence, and Sexuality.
