Fort Worth Band Pinkish Black Signs to German-based Century Media

After the successful release of a debut album on local imprint Handmade Birds, Fort Worth’s Pinkish Black tops off a seven-day victory lap since winning a Dallas Observer Music Award last week (for best metal act), with the news that they have signed to Century Media Records. The label’s predominantly metal roster has included Napalm Death, Eyehategod, Andrew WK, and quite a few more established artists. The news came by way of the extreme music site, Metal Underground, who had this quote from Century Media, along with a surprise note about a new record (excerpt):

“Pinkish Black’s last, self-titled album, released on Handmade Birds, featured seven tracks of dark, intense and at times, haunting songs. As one of the heaviest bands of late to feature no stringed instruments, Pinkish Black uses aura and emotions to attain what other bands (and a lot of Orange Amps and down-tuned guitars) fail to do. The band is currently touring and working on a new record, expected to be recorded by the end of the year.”

The band will also be touring all the way up to Brooklyn and back into early December, sharing bills with Pallbearer and Naam.
