Pinkshift - Love Me Forever
Pinkshift, are a vehemently unapologetic punk band whose songs rail against prejudice and oppression while also examining in great depth the human condition. Foregoing more traditional careers in the hard sciences / medicine, Baltimore natives Ashrita Kumar (singer), Paul Vallejo (guitar), and Myron Houngbedji (drums), are inspiring fans in a different way. The band smashes any preconceived notions of what a punk band should look or sound like. After self- releasing the viral hit "i'm gonna tell my therapist on you" and the Saccharine EP, Pinkshift partnered with Hopeless Records to release their debut album, Love Me Forever. Produced by Will Yip (Turnstile, Code Orange, Tigers Jaw), the band put together an emotionally cathartic, raucous, and powerful debut that centers their unique perspective as POC individuals in a scene that historically did not represent them.
