So sit back and enjoy this

LP (#MRL168) / cassette (#MRC168) / CD & digital (#MRD168)release date: June 30, 2017 on Mint Records / Dirt Cult Records PO Box 3613, Vancouver, BC Canada Vancouver power-trash trio Needles//Pins began in 2009 as an excuse for three friends to hang out. Two LPs and a
handful of 7 inch singles later, the bandhas come a long way but are still, at itscore, a few friends having fun. 2017sees the band set to release its third LP
Good Night, Tomorrow, its first on MintRecords. The record is a progressionboth musically and lyrically from theirolder material while still maintaining thehook-centric philosophy of their previousreleases. The band has becomelegendary in Vancouver for wild shows
and gruff but catchy punk rock melodies.It draws from classic punk roots like the wiry pop of The Buzzcocks and the gravely anthems of Stiff Little Fingers,but has a unique West Coast approach that would align itself with the catchiest of the Lookout! or Dirtnap Records catalog. Though none of the band’s songs overstays its welcome, you’ll find yourself humming one of their hooks days after seeing them play or hearing
the record.Recorded with Jesse Gander (Japandroids,White Lung) in Vancouver atRain City Recorders, the record shows
an organic growth from the power popof their previous two albums. Guitarist and singer Adam Solomonian’s voice is gruffer from playing hundreds
of shows, and you can see a richerappreciation of the group’s influencessuch as Jawbreaker and the Replacementsat play in the song writing. Tony
Dubroy’s solid bass lines and Macey Budgell’s heavy drumming combine to form a powerful rhythm section that perfectly complement Solomonian’s simplistic-but-pointed guitar playing.Vancouver’s Mint Records have teamed up with Portland’s Dirt Cult Records to co-release the record.
Needles//Pins have heavy North American touring planned for the summer including performances at Sled Island,Ottawa Explosion and Pop Montreal.
