Needles//Pins are Adam Solomonian (guitar & lead vocals), Tony Dubroy (bass & back up vocals) and Macey Budgel (drums). They have become legendary in Vancouver BC for wild shows and gruff but catchy punk rock hooks. The band draws from classic punk rock roots like The Buzzcocks and Stiff Little Fingers but have a unique West Coast approach that would align them with the catchiest of the Lookout! or Dirtnap Records catalog. NPR says “If you like a little dirt in your power-pop, Needles//Pins should already be on your radar.”
Today, the band is stoked to unveil a full album stream of their upcoming album ahead of release date (see CBC Radio debut)….
Needles//Pins began in Vancouver in 2010 as an excuse for three friends to hang out. The band have signed up with Mint Records and Dirt Cult Records to release their new LP, Good Night, Tomorrow, on June 30th. Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung, The Pack A.D.) recorded Good Night, Tomorrow in Vancouver at Rain City Recording and it shows an organic growth from their previous releases. The voices are gruffer from hundreds of shows and there is a richer appreciation of their influences and roots at play in the song writing. The band is gearing up to promote Good Night, Tomorrow with heavy touring across Canada and The US as well as festival appearances like last week’s Ottawa Explosion and Sled Island this week.
