Pink Mountaintops Announce
Tour Dates, Release Date

Pink Mountaintops have announced a set of tour dates in the U.S. and Canada to promote the upcoming release Axis of Evol on Jagjaguwar Records. The band will also make a stop at the South By Southwest music festival in March, and there's even talk of European dates in May, but nothing official has been announced yet. Pink Mountaintops is primarily Stephen McBean, but he rotates in a lot of collaborators. He's also a member of Black Mountain, who's also on Jajaguwar.

Pink Mountaintops just released a two-song EP known as The Ones I Love / Erected 7". It's been released to generate excitement around the upcoming full length release of Axis of Evol, due out on March 7th.

The album PR is flaunting sonic associations to Psycho Candy-era Jesus and Mary Chain or Spaceman 3. A preview of the new material sounds like unashamed drum machine beats laid under static-laden distorted guitars. All of this with a nod toward pop, but more in a "hey, whats up" nod that you give someone in passing than a full on embracing of pop music. Check it out for yourself with the free MP3 of New Drug Queens below.
