New PINS featuring Iggy!

WATCH the new video from awesome rock band Pins. The song is 'Aggrophobe' featuring the dulcet tones of Iggy Pop and is taken from their Bad Things EP.

The EP will be released by the Manchester five piece on March 24 via Haus Of Pins, but this track was initially released as a limited edition 7” yellow vinyl, numbered and signed by the band, with a B-side remix by fellow Mancunians Bernard & Edith.

Talking about the video the band say: “'Aggrophobe' is the wild card from our EP. The video was filmed partly at the director’s studio in Ancoats and partly at one of our favourite pubs on Oldham Street called Gulliver’s. We’re backstage waiting to go on to play a show, whilst the other acts are doing their thing.”

The EP also features Greater Manchester trenchcoat classic, 'Dead Souls' (Joy Divsion) and will be released as a download along with 500 limited edition 12” on Cadillac pink vinyl.

The band conclude: “We had talked about doing a Joy Division cover - I think it was Faith who suggested Dead Souls. Because we were in a rickety cottage and not a studio there was no isolation - so when people were recording parts everyone else had to be super quiet.”

If you want to listen to the killer lead track from the EP, listen to this week's The Quietus Hour podcast and there is a teaser trailer for the EP above.
