PINKSHIFT Announce North American Tour Dates This Fall

Hot on the heels of announcing the October 21 release of their debut album Love Me Forever, Pinkshift have confirmed an extensive North American tour. The dates begin in their hometown of Baltimore, MD on October 20 and end on November 18 in Boston, MA.

The tour stops in Los Angeles, California on November 5 and Brooklyn, NY on November 17. Jigsaw Youth and Yasmin Nur are supporting the tour. In September, Pinkshift will open for Destroy Boys on a handful of East Coast and perform the Emo Nite New Orleans Vacation with 100 Gecs and Bring Me the Horizon. Tickets go on sale at 10:00 a.m. local time here and all shows are listed below.

Pinkshift are a heavyweight, unapologetic punk band whose songs denounce prejudice and oppression while taking an in-depth look at the human condition. The Baltimore-based trio – Ashrita Kumar (vocals, they/them), Paul Vallejo (guitar, he/him), Myron Houngbedji (drums, he/him) – have established themselves in the United States and across the Atlantic since forming in 2018, thanks to a series of critically acclaimed singles, and tours with PUP and Mannequin Pussy.

They eschewed medical school and chemical engineering projects to pursue music, convey powerful messages, and show other POC artists that they can and should take their place in a predominantly white music scene, and the result is one of the most inventive bands in punk. scene today. Pre-order Love me forever here.

Love Me Forever was recorded by Will Yip (Turnstile, Mannequin Pussy, The Wonder Years, Circa Survive, Tigers Jaw) and over its searing 12 songs, Love Me Forever completely unleashes the full force and fury of the band.

To date, the band have shared “nothing (in my head)” from the album, which exemplifies the band’s agility as they cross the line between riot grrl, punk rock and post-hardcore, and more recently “I’m not crying, you’re recrying” a frantic journey through the heart, soul and mind of a band that clearly has a lot to unload, and does so viscerally as well as emotionally.
