The Pimps Of Joytime Announce New Album & Accompanying Tour
Brooklyn dance-rock outfit Pimps Of Joytime are gearing up to release their latest studio album, Third Wall Chronicles, on March 24 via Sugar Road Records. The band will headline venerable West Coast venues this month and next before heading to the East Coast.
Pimps Of Joytime recruited Steve Berlin to co-produce Third Wall Chronicles with frontman Brian Jay. Co-writers on the album also include Anthony Cole (JJ Grey & Mofro), Nappy G (Turntables on the Hudson), DJ Black Pearl and Chancey Yearwood. “Brian Jay is a bit of a genius,” said Steve Berlin. “It was a blast just coming in and making a few things larger and more colorful. He has the remarkable ability to get an idea, get a sound and make it real at a speed that I’ve never seen before.” The LP also features guest appearances from Ivan Neville and Anthony Cole.
The latest Pimps Of Joytime tour begins at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, Colorado on March 23. MarchForth is aboard as support for select dates on PoJ’s West Coast tour which also includes stops in Boulder, Denver, Jackson Hole, Missoula, Seattle, Portland, Bend, Eugene, Arcata, Nevada City, Crystal Bay and San Francisco. Brian Jay & Co. then head to the East Coast for late March concerts in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Asbury Park, New York City and an April Fool’s Day performance at The Sinclair in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
