The Pink Stones will release their debut album Introducing…The Pink Stones on April 9th via the New West Records imprint Normaltown Records. The 10-song set was produced by Henry Barbe (Drive-By Truckers, Deerhunter) and was recorded at Chase Park Transduction and the Barn in Athens, GA. Mixing elements of classic cosmic country, raucous rock’n’roll & indie rock, and fresh humor & heartaches, The Pink Stones are authoring a new chapter in the annals of Cosmic American Music and are within a new wave of young artists from the same college town that gave the world R.E.M., The B-52’s, Drive-By Truckers, Pylon, The Elephant 6 Recording Company, Widespread Panic, Vic Chesnutt, The Whigs, and more.
Check out The Pink Stones’ new single “Love Me Hardly” (below) where they churn out a twangy alt-country gem that features some A-plus guitar work atop a steady backbeat and pop flourishes.
While their average age is only 25, the band also features the music veteran John Neff, one of the founding members of the Drive-By Truckers, bringing his experience and sense of legacy to the group. The Pink Stones are Hunter Pinkston (Vocals, Guitar), Will Anderson (Piano, Vocals), Adam Wayton (Bass), Logan Brammer (Guitar, Vocals), John Neff (Pedal Steel), Jack Colclough (Drums).
Introducing…The Pink Stones will be available across digital retailers, compact disc, as well as a limited edition mix of random colored vinyl pressed at Kindercore Vinyl in Athens, GA. Introducing…The Pink Stones is available for pre-order NOW via NEW WEST RECORDS.
