If Roadburn 2017 is rife with artists removing guitar from its dominant spot in extreme music, then few bands would be more necessary to include than Texan innovators Pinkish Black.
With “just” drums and synthesizers at their disposal, this duo makes a haunting sort of music that floats between the weight of heavy metal and the buzzing atmospheres of classic horror soundtracks. It’s psychedelic without fully committing to the trip and energetic without ever losing a sense of restraint and focus.
The tension created in this constant state of in-between is cathartic and tragic, with the gripping voice of keyboard wizard Daron Beck guiding the listener through the dense murk the band creates.
The band commented: “The festival has always had wonderful and diverse line-ups, and that seems to expand every year. We are truly honored to be included on this year’s legendary list.”
Pinkish Black will be making waves and breaking hearts with their chilling synthesizer dirges when they appear at Roadburn 2017 on Thursday, 20 April.
Roadburn Festival 2017 will take place April 20-23 at the 013 venue, Tilburg, The Netherlands. Tickets are now on sale!
