“Shameless Southern-simmered, whiskey-soaked rock
anthems. Rowdy dueling guitars, and ’70s classic rock ’n’ roll that leaves no
choice but to party.” See the video for “Mercy!”
by The Pinx over at Cowboys
& Indians or at the link below!
filmed in the historic Fitzpatrick Hotel
in Washington, GA,” explains Adam
McIntyre of The Pinx. “They
graciously allowed us to shoot this loud video in their ballroom, and it's just
beautiful. The hotel is said to be haunted. You can probably tell we’re not
just lip synching; we actually blasted the song while we played at an equal
volume. The video is also probably the only video currently to feature two Ellie
Monster western suits because we played around with having me wear the
red suit for my guitar solo and the blue suit for the rest of the song.”

About | The Pinx
The basic tracks for Sisters & Brothers (April 12th), the upcoming
third album by the Atlanta, Georgia-based rock band, The Pinx, were recorded live in the studio, including band leader Adam McIntyre’s insistent vocals. Listen to the single “Mercy!” from Sisters & Brothers
here. The dueling AllmanBrothers-esque guitar leads throughout
the album by McIntyre and Chance McColl happen to sound particularly
majestic in this setting.
About “Mercy!,”McIntyre recalls the humorous story that inspired the tune, “I was
somewhere out of town about to play a show, talking to someone, when a lady
slapped my ass. I’ve worked in enough restaurants where that kind of thing was
rampant, so I just kind of turned my head while I kept talking and watched as
this lady turned ghost white when she realized she’d slapped a stranger on the
ass, not her husband. She apologized later.”
“I wanted the audience to enjoy a rock and roll band
doing what a rock and roll band does,” McIntyre
continues, talking about his intentions behind the process of recording Sisters
& Brothers. Harmony vocals, guitar solos and extra “studio magic”
came later courtesy of two magicians (producers Brian Carter and Joey Jones),
marking a departure for McIntyre,
who is used to wearing all of the hats.
“I’ve tried to be the singer, lead guitarist,
frontman, songwriter, producer, engineer and mixer,” he says of his past
recordings, “but Sisters & Brothers
is a tale of letting two talented engineers do their work while we did ours as
a band.” That said, it was still McIntyre’s
idea to bring Carter and Jones together.
The gamble paid off this time around as Sisters
and Brothers sounds like the legit combination of the styles of the men
that McIntyre placed at the helm.
The songs here are undeniably melodic and hummable, but it’s as if you’re
tapping along while careening towards a brick wall. Sisters and Brothers
embodies elegance within chaos.
“Our previous album (2016’s Freedom)was a party record, but Sisters & Brothers is for darker
times,” McIntyre explains. “That’s
not a bad thing, though. Darkness is important.”
Sisters & Brothers, the third album by The Pinx, is out now. Adam
McIntyre of The Pinx is
available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom
