Set For Release on February 12, 2013
Composed of King's X's bassist/vocalist dUg Pinnick of the progressive metal band King's X, southpaw blues-rock guitarist Eric Gales (Lauryn Hill, solo) and ambitious ambidextrous drummer and former Mars Volta member, Thomas Pridgen, PGP unites three versatile artists, who demand, as much as share, the musical spotlight.
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.
"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's debut 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 and Stevie Wonder might find something meaningful in these meaty, extended tracks.
