The Skinny: Run for Cover Records is incredibly excited to welcome Pity Sex to the roster. Hailing from Ann Arbor, MI, Pity Sex specialize in foggy, lo-fi noise pop and fuzzed-out, blown-speaker walls of sound, all with their own Midwestern emo subtleties. Situated somewhere at the convergence of Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth and Hum, the bands quietest moments are defeated reflections with plaintive instrumentals. Its loudest are desperate cries washed in searing, reverb-y overdrive.

Their newest EP, Dark World, is available for free download at their Bandcamp page – see below – and will available on vinyl in the coming weeks via Forward Records. The band has also begun writing their debut full-length for Run For Cover. Pity Sex is currently on tour in California and the western half of the US.
