Pinback is an indie rock band from San Diego, California. The band was formed in 1998 by singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Armistead Burwell Smith IV and Rob Crow, who have been its two consistent members. They have released five studio albums and several other releases.

History and origin

The band's moniker is a reference to a character in the 1974 film Dark Star (played by Dan O'Bannon, who also co-wrote the film), directed by John Carpenter. Audio samples from this film are used frequently in the band's early works.[1][2]

In 2004, Pinback signed to Touch and Go Records.[3] They released their third album, Summer in Abaddon, later that year. In 2006, the band released a collection of rarities, entitled Nautical Antiques. Pinback's fourth full-length album, Autumn of the Seraphs, was released on September 11, 2007.[4][5] They appeared live in a nationally broadcast interview and played a couple of songs on NPR's Talk of the Nation on October 8, 2007. The program is available for download via NPR's website.

On April 1, 2009, it was announced that Pinback was working on a new album that would be released by Temporary Residence Ltd. Their fifth studio album, Information Retrieved, was released October 16, 2012.[6] On August 15, 2012, Pinback released the song "Proceed to Memory" from Information Retrieved free to play through RollingStone.com.[7]

Smith and Crow have been the band's two consistent members. They are typically joined by drummer Chris Prescott. Tom Zinser and Mario Rubalcaba have previously contributed drums. Other past members of the Pinback live band are: Erik Hoversten, Braden Diotte, Terrin Durfey, Ryan Bromley, Cameron Jones, Kenseth Thibideau, Brent Asbury, Gabriel Voiles, Dmitri Dziensuwski, Donny Van Zandt, and Thatcher Orbitashi.
