New Album "DEAD RECKONING" Out Now On Kallax Records
“Dead Reckoning” is the second album for The Pier, released on December 07th by KALLAX RECORDS. It sounds edgy, daring and exciting as a new fresh wave! After having played Sziget and Reeperbahn Festivals, these youngsters' reputation is rocketing high, with a scheduled appearance at Eurosonic Festival in January 2019. The band started their journey in 2016 with an eponymous album, which was produced when members were still at high school. Their young age is possibly the main reason for The Pier’s lack of reverence towards trends and rules. One can define them as a math rock group, or post-punk, indeed their attitude combines punk edgy angularity with an uncontainable playfulness.
Listening to these 10 tracks – produced between Bari and Rome – echoes of Don Caballero, Foals, This Town Needs Guns, and Joy Division will resonate, but surely The Pier can push influences further into their own creativity’s land, using electronics and rhythms patterns as a free jazz combo gone on acid, singing nursery rhymes.
Gabriele Terlizzi, Davide Pasculli and Danilo De Candia started the project back in 2013, and their sailing has gone far already, with concerts in Hamburg, Budapest and Vienna and – in summer 2018 – appearances in key festivals as Sziget and Reeperbahn, where they’ve previewed a few songs from the new album.
2019 is going to start with a bang: The Pier have been selected for prestigious Eurosonic Festival in January 2019, and they’re ready and fit to make Europe their stage and playground.
