Pinkshift confirms North American dates

Following the announcement 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.

The Baltimore trio, which includes Ashrita Kumar, Paul Vallejo and Myron Houngbedji, have made their mark in the US and across the Atlantic since forming in 2018, thanks to a series of 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.

Love Me Forever was recorded by Will Yip (Turnstile, Mannequin Pussy, The Wonder Years, Circa Survive, Tigers Jaw) and over its blistering 12 songs, Love Me Forever completely unleashes the full force and fury of the band. To date, the band have shared the album’s “nothing (in my head)”, 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 into the heart, soul and mind of a band that clearly has a lot to do, and does so viscerally as well as emotionally.
