PINS DEBUT NEW VIDEO FOR ‘SHOOT YOU’
ANNOUNCE 7″ RELEASE ‘SHOOT YOU / ELEVENTH HOUR’
500 COPIES OF HEART-SHAPED VINYL RELEASED VIA BELLA UNION FOR RECORD STORE DAY
“Manc post-punk monochromatic minimalism, Adam Ant drums, Siouxsie declamation, banshees guitar – this is sublime” The Sunday Times
Re-recorded, re-mastered and carved into heart-shaped vinyl, Bella Union’s PINS release two of their hardest hitting tracks for a super limited run in celebration of Record Store Day. PINS have also unveiled a brand new video for the new version of ‘Shoot You’, directed by Sing J Lee (PINS’ long-time collaborator, who has also made films for Chvrches).
‘Shoot You’ video
Fiery Manchester four-piece PINS released their debut album Girls Like Us to a rousing reception last year, and have since toured the UK and the US playing with acts like Warpaint and Money, and taking in festivals such as SXSW. The track ‘Shoot You’ made up one half of their first double A-single, which was released on gold cassette tape (via their own Haus of Pins label, no less) and barely touched the record shelves selling out within 24 hours. Here’s your chance to own a limited edition of it again, this time on vinyl, likely to sell out just as rapidly as those gold tapes.
Akin to cult 60s novel/70s film The Warriors, PINS are true fighters; a taut rebel unit living out their own manifesto and defending their turf as purveyors of brooding guitar pop. These tracks were recorded and mixed to eight track tape at Eve Studios, Manchester.
