San Francisco’s Pins of Light reside in that murky musical shadow-territory of the nearly unclassifiable. They craft a brutal and intricate mélange of metal, punk and prog that isn’t quite any of those things. Pins of Light’s most progressive moments are more Motörhead than Mothers of Invention; their metal is more Pink Floyd than it is Judas Priest; the elements of punk are a driving fistfight that’s entirely the band’s own. Singer and bassist Shane Baker, guitarists Jake Palladino and Ravi Durbeej, and drummer Phil Becker come previously (and currently) from such SF institutions as Dead and Gone, Night After Night, Hightower and Triclops (among a slew of others).
As with all Valley King Records releases, the artwork is by Alan Forbes. The packaging is silkscreened and signed & numbered by Forbes. Each single will also come with an exclusive sticker!
In addition to the regular edition of 500 on black vinyl, we are releasing a very limited amount on colored vinyl.
