British electronic rock band The Big Pink are making a welcomed return with their brand new single “Hightimes.” The single premiered via The FADER Magazine and received it's worldwide radio premiere on Zane Lowe's Beats1 show today. "Hightimes" is available now digitaly on iTunes and Spotify and will be available on 12" clear and black marble vinyl soon. Pre-order here.
“Hightimes” is a soaring maelstrom of powerful industrial beats and distorted chords, whirling in a heady swathe of synthesizers and stadium psychedelia -- serves as the perfect taster of their forthcoming "Empire Underground" EP and what’s to come in 2016 .
With two critically acclaimed albums under their belt “A Brief History of Love” and “Future This” – both reaching Top 10 status in the Billboard Heatseekers and Tastemakers Album Charts – The Big Pink will release the "Empire Underground" EP in early 2016 and will follow with their third full-length later in the year, alongside a North American tour (dates TBA).
Their forthcoming release features contributors Andrew Wyatt, Beth Ditto, Dave Mccraken (producer of Ian brown) and was mixed by the legendary Alan Moulder.
