Plini Premiere New Video “Salt + Charcoal” – New EP “Sunhead” To Be Released This Month

Plini has a new EP called “Sunhead” scheduled for a July 27th release. Below you can check out a video for the a first song titled “Charcoal And Dust” from it. The track features guest backing vocals and production from Skyharbor‘s Devesh Dayal.

Speaking of how the effort came to be, Plini himself commented:

“I started working on the material almost straight after ‘Handmade Cities‘ was released in 2016, sort of with the goal to make a very big, small EP – aiming to put as much detail and refinement into the composition and playing as possible. Both musically and emotionally, the music is greatly influenced by the amount of touring and travel I’ve done in the past couple of years.

I was particularly inspired by Animals As Leaders (who I toured Europe and North America with in 2016), by the musical adventurousness in their last album, and Disperse (who I toured with in Europe in early 2017) for the way they seamlessly combined contemporary pop and electronic elements with prog-metal – updating a genre that sometimes seems (ironically for the name, “progressive”) entrenched in old musical cliches.

Aside from this, I think the ‘Sunhead‘ EP is a musical expression of the pure excitement that comes with traveling to new places, meeting new people and eating new things.”

August will find Plini out playing the following European/UK shows:

08/10 Karlovy Vary, CZE – Musicians Festival
08/11 Josefov, CZE – Brutal Assault
08/14 Budapest, HUN – A38 Roof
08/15 Krakow, POL – Alchemia
08/16 Warsaw, POL – Hydrozagadka
08/18 Somerset, UK – ArcTanGent Festival
08/19 London, UK – Islington Assembly Hall
08/22 Mosta, MLT – Razzett L’Ahmar

During his recent performance at this year’s Madrid edition of the ‘Download Festival‘, Marilyn Manson invited a group of fans on stage and forced one of them to take off his Avenged Sevenfold shirt. In the below footage of the incident, Manson can be seen telling the fan why:

“Take this shirt off. That’s not my band.”

According to a fan who claims to have been at the show, Manson was fed-up with the crowd booing him for “30 minutes” because, “almost everyone was there just because Avenged Sevenfold were next.” Avenged Sevenfold were scheduled to go on after Manson.
