The label commented:
We’re incredibly excited to welcome Pity Sex to the Run For Cover roster.
Hailing from Ann Arbor, MI, Pity Sex specialize in foggy, lo-fi noise pop and fuzzed-out, blown-speaker walls of sound, all with their own midwestern emo subtleties. Situated somewhere at the convergence of Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth and Hum, the bands quietest moments are defeated reflections with plaintive instrumentals. It’s loudest are desperate cries washed in searing, reverby overdrive.
Their newest EP, Dark World, is available for free download at http://pitysex.bandcamp.com. The band has also begun writing their debut full-length. We’ve added a brand new Pity Sex shirt over at www.runforcoverrecords.com/store and we’re currently in the middle of a summer sale, so enter the code ‘summer12′ at checkout for 15% off your entire order.
The band is currently on tour in California and the western half of the US. More info at http://pitysex.tumblr.com or click ‘more’ to check the tour dates.
