Pink Mountaintops Announce New Album ‘Peacock Pools’, Share Video for New Single

    Pink Mountaintops, the long-running project of Stephen McBean, has returned with the announcement of a new album. Peacock Pools is set for release on May 6 via ATO. Lead single ‘Lights of the City’ comes with an accompanying George Mays-directed video, which you can check out below.

    Talking about the video, McBean said in a statement: “Lincoln Heights hilltop sunrise riff’n’bang sparks spree of vengeance by disgruntled ex-bass player turned cyborg tinkertronic handsome man, Ken The Walnut. Obsessed with Pink Mountaintops demise The Walnut’s sinister plot almost succeeds in a Don McClean sized wave of rock’n’roll destruction. Thankfully, Emily Rose’s Phantom of The Park summoned superpowers save the band group combo and with some collective post-dress rehearsal concert magic the former low frequency fiend is defeated. Let the rock prevail!”

    The songs on Peacock Pools, which will follow 2014’s Get Back, first came together in the early days of the pandemic. “I’d moved into this cool little ’50s rancher house outside L.A. and was just mucking about in my bedroom studio, and pretty soon I started reaching out to some friends who were also shacked up and craving broadband sonic collaboration,” McBean recalled. The album features Redd Kross’ Steven McDonald, Dale Crover of Melvins, Emily Rose Epstein (Ty Segall, Emily Rose & the Rounders) Joshua Wells (Destroyer, Black Mountain), Laena Myers-Ionita (Feels, Death Valley Girls), Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker, Steve Gunn), and Jeremy Schmidt (Black Mountain, Sinoia Caves).
