Press ReleaseAfter releasing their debut full length record in November for free following legal issues with their former label, Pentimento have finally begun pressing their self-titled album. It will be available on vinyl, CD and cassette in the US & Europe. Each physical format has something exclusive, so be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page. A statement from the band is below:
"We are excited to announce that Pentimento is finally pressing our debut self-titled record to physical formats and distributing with the help of Paper + Plastick (vinyl US), Black Numbers (CD & cassette US), Coffeebreath And Heartache (vinyl EU/UK) as well as Ice Grill$ (CD Japan).
The flood of support we received following the announcement to give the record away for free in November was nothing short of moving to all four of us, and I couldn't even begin to imagine a way to explain how grateful we are and always will be. We are ecstatic to be able to finally get the record out on physical formats, to see it finally come to life. Even now, I can't be sure that I'm explaining myself in a way that will accurately represent what it means to a band like us to have the opportunity to be a part of punk rock, and to have so many incredible people surrounding us to reinforce exactly why we push ourselves to do what we do, despite the adversity.
As it was in November, this record is our gift to show how much we appreciate every single individual who has anything to do with this band. We will never forget how lucky we are. Everything that has happened up to this point is will stay with each of us for the rest of our lives. The impact that you have had on us as individuals and as a band is immeasurable. You stuck with us, and that's something we will never be able to thank you enough for.
You are the sand beneath our waves.
We would like to personally thank Thomas & Vinnie at P+P, Dave & Phil at Black Numbers, Tobi & Dave at CBHA, Mizuki at Ice Grill$, Lil' Sneaks, Jason Parent & Hope This Helps, and of course our families & friends who give us a reason to wake up in the morning.
-Mike, Jerry, Lance, Vinny/Pentimento"
