Baltimore trio Pinkshift – Ashrita Kumar (vocals, they/them), Paul Vallejo (guitar, he/him), Myron Houngbedji (drums, he/him) – recently announced that their debut album, “Love Me Forever,” will be released on October 21 via Hopeless Records. Following the release of the critically acclaimed singles “nothing (in my head)” and “i’m not crying, you’re crying“, Pinkshift now share a new track entitled “GET OUT“.
A proper single from a fierce and uncompromising punk band whose songs speak out against prejudice and oppression while examining the human condition. “GET OUT” is a snarling, anthemic song that blends metal riffs and punk vocals, and which the band recently dedicated to the Supreme Court at their concerts.
“‘GET OUT’ is an anthem to be utilized to take space where it’s not inherently given to us,” explains Kumar. “It’s a blatant attack against the white supremacist and patriarchal colonizers of our bodies, homes, and ways of life, and it’s an expression of pure and unapologetic rage that stands in defense of our autonomy.”
