The song, “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)” sung by Betty Hutton to Howard Keel in the Broadway show tune turned 1950’s movie, “Annie Get Your Gun” still has a significant message today and The Venomous Pinks are here to show us why.
This female triad punk band has a new four-track EP to share with us on April 23rd, 2021 and we couldn’t be more overjoyed!
The Venomous Pinks have been scorching our ears with red-hot music since 2012 and haven’t looked back since. With songs like, “I Really Don’t Care”, “We Do It Better”, “Todos Unidos”, “Hold On” and a Joan Jett cover of “I Want You”, you know whatever they are going to put out is going to be a pure punk rock sensation.
This new EP is going to be the live recordings from Bridge City Sessions in Portland, Oregon that they recorded around October 19, 2019. The title, “Based on a True Story” is just that.
On this day of recording, they also had an early load in time for their show later that night with The Bombpops and Masked Intruder (hence the two bands making it to the back album art). What an amazing show to have been at with three of the most entertaining punk bands around.
This brings us to one of our favorite parts of the upcoming album (not including the piece de resistance which is their out of this world music); the cover art. Never before have we seen an album cover of one of our favorite bands in cartoon form hitching a ride on the back of a sasquatch to their next show.
This idea stems from the Sound Siters Podcast that front women, Drea, guitarist Gabby and good friend Angela (that also runs some of The Pinks PR, and works with the band) have where they talk about the female perspective on music industry and give lots of DIY ideas for up-and-coming bands but Drea told us, “We also love to talk about ghosts and paranormal stuff. Whether you’re a believer or not, everyone has some sort of opinion on it… the other part of it is that we want to promote people out there that are doing amazing things. We’ve had artist like (punk artist icon and brain behind The Descendents logo) Chris Shary, record label owners, and all that. We wanted it to be a forum for people in bands that don’t really have an understanding of what they’re doing.”
The Venomous Pinks have proven to be a sensational band, it’s the icing on the pink cake that this trio of females is showing us all how it’s done.
