Pinkish Black Sign With Relapse Records, Ready New Album And More

Pinkish Black‘s next album isn’t the only thing the group will be releasing through their new label home of Relapse Records next year. First up the duo will be issuing their previously-unreleased final album from their pre-Pinkish Black outfit The Great Tyrant. Titled “The Trouble With Being Born“, that effort will bow in early 2015 with the band stating of it:

The Great Tyrant was dissolved nearly five years ago with the death our bassist and close friend, Tommy Atkins. The recording process (for the majority of the material) was plagued by technical problems, and was not finished at the time of Tommy‘s suicide. Through the hard work of Matt Barnhart, these songs have been transformed, and are finally ready to be issued.

We are thrilled that Relapse will be releasing the final document of The Great Tyrant, and that we can finally put that beast to rest.”

Pinkish Black on the other hand will be entering Echo Lab Studios in Argyle, TX this February to begin tracking their third full-length opus.

Ex-Faith No More singer Chuck Mosley has fallen on hard times financially and has reached out with the following call for help through his Facebook.

“hey friends and other peoples, i am really dreading this, i have fought myself over this for more than a couple months, i seem to have no other choice than to lose my pride due to the lacking ability to provide a sense of security for my family. the shocking truth is that i’m not rich. we struggle everyday, just like most everybody, more, right now, worse than ever, in a long time. our landlord wants to sell the house we’ve lived in for ten years, and yes, we are behind in our rent, so he’s using that as leverage, to get us out so he can fix up and sell, right away, technically, we’re supposed to be out today, dec 3rd, but he’s deciding whether to give us another week.

so here i am, for my family, on my knees, asking for help. I’m ashamed for being in this condition, that i have to burden others, who look to me, only to be my friend, and for me to be theirs, and i am abusing that relationship, and i apologise, but for my family, i’ll do anything………………legal. and that’s the reality, i could go into a dissertation, about how and why, but the bottom line is we are broker than we’ve been in a good good long time, and can’t bail out, so here i am asking that anybody who could afford to send a few dollars to my/our paypal acct., (chuck@mosleyvua.com) and for any substantial donations, we will offer up my better half’s portrait of my dog, Fredo, and me, real scarface meets…………………….me.

she’s an awesome artist,her name is pip logan, and there’s a few more pieces of her work, she’s willing to part with, for a few of the more generous donations . just throwin that out there….our band, VUA, has had to put off trying to tour or play any shows, we’re starting to record new stuff, but even that is suffering at the hands of my family’s financial situation, so, please, if you can, help, we will be eternally greatful and i will be eternally self loathing for having to be at this level……i’m sorry for asking, if i could do anything for you, please ask, and i swear i will do everything in my power to serve you, any way i can. thank you.”

He further added:

“We are overwhelmed by your support. I hate asking for help…we put the digital downloads of our albums “rap over hard rock for food” and “demosforsale” for 1$/donation at chuckmosley.bandcamp.com and we will be adding a few signed vinyl and cd copies soon. big thanks to Matt Gladyszewski for taking extra photos for the demo release and to Cristian Saldías Sepúlveda for the graphic design help”
