The Pinker Tones Set To Release New Remix Album
Published August 13, 2007

In the wake of this summer’s successful U.S. tour, taking Barcelona’s electronic sensations to New York for the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) and Los Angeles’ California Plaza as well as stops in Phoenix, Chicago, San Jose and Puerto Rico, The Pinker Tones have managed to turn out a brand new album of infectious remixes and collaborations. They continue the momentum of last year’s Million Colour Revolution with More Colours (Nacional Records) which features a cooler-than-cool lineup of artists including The Submarines, Kinky, Nortec Collective, Zeta Bosio of Soda Stereo and Mexican Institute of Sound. The album will be released August 21.

The Pinker Tones are moving along on their path to global domination, continuing to make a name for themselves in the United States. The Pinker Tones have been selected to co-headline Virgin Megastores’ Musica y Pasion: An Emerging Artists Tour, a series of in-store events at Virgin Megastores around the U.S. that will kick off in late October. In the past year, the group has been the subject of a NY Times feature, had an A&E television special, performed on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” had a song featured on the hit ABC sitcom “Ugly Betty,” and saw heavy video play on networks like MTV Tr3s, Mun2, and LATV. The Pinker Tones also made a major splash at this year’s SXSW, where they performed five shows in only 36 hours, including the Vans Warped Tour showcase. They also wowed the audience at KCRW’s Sounds Eclectic Evening at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles alongside artists like The Shins, Lily Allen, Cold War Kids and Rodrigo and Gabriela. The Pinker Tones single “Karma Hunters” was also selected by national bilingual youth network Mun2 as the theme song for its popular reality show Chicas Project.

The Pinker Tones are the brainchild of Barcelona natives Mister Furia and Professor Manso. The group’s music is an eclectic and explosive cocktail mixing pop, funk, soul, bossa, break beat, swing, lounge, and psychedelia. From the beginning, The Pinker Tones realized that their new project had fantastic potential; there was very positive energy during their initial recording sessions. They began to compose and produce like crazy in what has now become their new home: Pinkerland. In this tiny rooftop studio in the center of Barcelona, they put together their first album, Pink Connection, which was released in 2003.

Professor Manso and Mister Furia have developed a killer live show with the invaluable help of DJ Niño: The Pinker Tones DJ Crew, in which they combine the intensity of a rock band and the excitement of a DJ set. The DJ Crew has taken them from Barcelona to such far away places as London, Caracas, Buenos Aires, Moscow, Beijing and Johannesburg.
