Of the latest single and video, guitarist, vocalist Drea Doll says, “‘Apothecary Ailment’ is a track about how consuming the cycle of addiction can be. I witnessed someone close to me struggle with severe addiction. It was a matter of life or death. The lyrics are a plea for them to choose life. I’ve had my own personal battles over the years, and facing one’s demons is never easy.
“For the video, we escape to the beautiful landscape near the lost Dutchman park in Apache Junction, AZ. Since this is our first album, it was important for us to show the world our roots and where we grew up.”
The highly-anticipated debut full-length is consumed by a deep narrative while fusing their razor-sharp guitar licks, mesmerizing bass riffs, and thunderous drum shreds, which is what the trio is known for.
Recorded at Maple Sound Studios, Engineered / Produced by Cameron Webb, and co-produced by Linh Le (Bad Cop/ Bad Cop), this collaboration created a dynamic sound with unforgettable harmonies. Serving severe sing-along vibes, guest gang vocal appearances include Linh Le, Efrem Schulz (Death by Stereo), and Brenna Red (Last Gang). Dan Palmer (Zebrahead and Death by Stereo) also plays guitar on “Mercy”, “I Really Don’t Care”, and “Hold On.”
This synergy between musicians gives an overarching theme of unity and solidarity in the music scene. The album’s addictive sequencing goes full throttle from start to finish, making it impossible to skip over tracks since each stands strong on its own.
Subjects range from persevering heart-wrenching losses, to fighting sexism, to belting social change war cries, which proves once again their punk rock commentary is a force to be reckoned with. ‘Vita Mors’ is more than an album, it’s an insider’s guide into The Pinks’ personal rebel journey.
“Alright. You’ve got one life. One chance. Always do your best. Stand for what you believe in. You’re much stronger than you think. When you really want it, you are unstoppable. Hold on to what your heart speaks.” – The Venomous Pinks
The Venomous Pinks will be playing Montreal’s Pouzza Fest 10 in late May alongside Propaghandi, Cloud Nothings, Belvedere, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, War On Women and many more. The band is also touring with Dead Kennedys and Nekromantix in June. Tix for those shows on sale now here.
