The Skinny: Philadelphia prog-punk duo PINKWASH will release their full-length debut record, Collective Sigh, May 13 on Don Giovanni Records and recently premiered their song “Metastatic” which you can now hear below.

Comprised of long time friends Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine, who have previously played in Mass Movement of the Moth, Ingrid, Waxahatchee (Ashley is a current member), Des Ark, etc., the band has delivered a dark, durgy and deceivingly sensitive collection. While previous releases represent anger and frustration, Collective Sigh provides a process of coping for vocalist Doubek, whose powerful delivery—from a high-pitched scream, as if he’s on the verge of cutting out, to a strong-trained melody—is one of a kind, undeniably unique. The duo will be hitting the road at the end of the month, see a full list of dates below.
