Pink Frost premiere first track from forthcoming album via Pitchfork

"An increasingly commanding quartet that embraces the power of guitar drone, tribal drum and the deep, shoegaze-era swoon." -- Chicago Tribune 

"Off-kilter, yearning rock music that strives for a populism that's considered a bit declassé by most of their peers and, as such, badly missed." -- Pitchfork

Chicago quartet Pink Frost debut the first track from their forthcoming sophomore album today via Pitchfork. The scorching tune, "Ruins" is available for streaming/download HERE. Or, Soundcloud HERE.

Pink Frost is the new moniker of the critically-praised band formerly known as APTEKA. The album, Sundowning was recorded at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio and will be released in partnership between BLVD Records and Notes and Bolts Records & Tapes on September 3rd. 

Their debut LP (as APTEKA) Gargoyle Days, made Best of 2011 lists at outlets from Time Out Chicago to the Dumbing of America and this past February saw the release of their first 7" single withe the band's new name. Awash in captivating reverb, swirling melodies and soaring, anthemic refrains, Pink Frost has already generated considerable praise from local press namedropping everything from Ride to Smashing Pumpkins to Dinosaur Jr. to The Men and beyond.
