ABSOLUTExclusive: Pinsky Announces Breakup; Album Stream

Posted by - 07:43 AM on 03/23/12
Today we're sad to announce that our friends in Pinsky have decided to break up. Whether you were a fan of their 2011 full-length, Losing Touch, or have never heard of the band, you can head to their AP.net Profile to stream that album in its entirety today. The group will be heading to Brian McTernan's Salad Days studio in Baltimore to record one last batch of songs, which will see a digital release in June. The full statement from the band can be read below.
Band StatementOver the last five years, we the boys of Pinsky have grown to be a family, experiencing some incredible highs (and lows) together during our personal and professional lives. It's with much sadness that we announce we will be disbanding and going our separate ways. We remain great friends with fond memories of our time shared on stage and in the studio. In an effort to end things properly, we'll be finishing the string of shows in ME, MA, and NH with a possible last Portland date added to be our final hurrah. Then we'll be heading to Salad Days Studio in Baltimore at the end of May to record a few last songs with producer Brian McTernan - something we had been planning/looking forward to since before the split. We'll be releasing those tracks digitally sometime this summer and giving the band a proper send-off. Thank you to everyone who has supported Pinsky over the years and liked us enough to give a second listen. If you haven't had a chance to see us live yet, we hope you can make one of our last dates and help to end this party right.

Thanks Thomas. Really bummed about the breakup. These guys are just amazing people. I really hope kids take some time and listen to the album today! It's one of my favorites. Looking forward to the new material w/ Brian. We've heard demos and they're fantastic.

Man I was really digging them before Losing Touch. But then I just could not for the life of me grow to like that album. I really tried hard, but just couldn't do it. Maybe if I could have seen them live I could have been swayed.

This sucks! Honestly, never heard of them before Losing Touch but that was really one of my favorite albums of last year. Was looking forward to what they had in store for future releases but maybe some of the members will go on to do other stuff that'll be great.
