PINNICK GALES PRIDGEN - bassist/vocalist dUg Pinnick (KING'S X), guitarist Eric Gales (LAURYN HILL, solo) and drummer Thomas Pridgen (ex-MARS VOLTA) - have released their new video, for 'Collateral Damage', the lead track of the group's self-titled debut album, released back in February via Magna Carta. The new clip can be seen below:
On the band's debut, each member of PGP infuses the material with his own set of musical influences, transforming his individual instrument into a lead instrument. The absolutely slamming musicianship frames the recognizable melodies of these songs and catapults the music into the realms of psychedelic blues, hard rock, and progressive soul/R&B.
'Angels And Aliens'
'Hang On, Big Brother'
'Sunshine Of Your Love'
'Been So High (The Only Place To Go Is Down)'
'Me And You'
'The Greatest Love'
Check out the new video, for 'Hang On, Big Brother', below:
"This record is three guys, with music in us, who said, 'Let's go for it,'" says Pinnick. "It was built upon raw energy."
Produced by Mike Varney, Pinnick Gales Pridgen contains all the stinging bite and all-out sonic boom of King's X, The Mars Volta and THE ERIC GALES BAND. In addition, fans of artists as far ranging as JIMI HENDRIX, CREAM, LIVING COLOUR, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, TOOL, THE WHO, STEVIE WONDER and LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT might find something meaningful in these meaty, extended tracks.
“I think the record has a combination of all of the good things about our playing,” says Pridgen.
“This is just colossal,” Gales concludes. “This is just some slammin’ stuff. When you put a project out like this, man, people will want to hear that material live. I know I would".
