The Venomous Pink’s newest album, “Based on a True Story”, lives up to its title. These tracks are the musical aftermath of their mid-tour, pre-COVID, Bridge City Sessions live recording. This release perfectly documents the band’s unproduced sound and raw energy. Plus, it’s a product of an unforgettable, fun adventure, through uncontrollable, intense, time restraints on the road. The Arizona-based punk trio is known for their addictive live performances that shreds from start to finish, and these cuts really show what “The Pinks” are made of.
“After speeding across states and trying to beat the clock for a couple of days, we told the Bridge City Sessions crew we only had so much time to wrap things, rush across town, to play a sold out show at the Twilight Lounge. They told us we could only get through a couple of songs,” explained drummer Cassandra Jalilie.
Obviously, they have never seen The Pinks live before. Bridge City quickly retracted their initial assumptions.
Jalilie went on, “We ended up recording our whole EP. It was insane because they told us, ‘no other band has been able to go through an entire set that fast before in one take.’ Even they were blown away!”
“The true sound of the Venomous Pinks is hearing a live set,” said guitarist and vox Drea Doll.
