Pink Avalanche
Pink Avalanche reunites guitarist/vocalist Che Arthur (ex-Atombombpocketknife) and drummer Adam Reach (The Poison Arrows), who had previously played together in the Chicago/Alabama trio Universal Life and Accident and on Arthur's solo albums.

"Adam and I hadn't played together in years, but around the end of 2010 or early 2011 I had recently come up with a bunch of parts of songs. That came up in a phone conversation we had one day and so we decided to get together and throw some of those ideas around. Pretty soon we had a few songs."

Those writing sessions quickly became recording sessions, and as an album began to take shape Arthur and Reach began to realize it was time to fill out what had been a "project" into a full band. Enter guitarist Kortland Chase (ex-Chatty Cathy) and bassist Pete Croke (Tight Phantomz, Brokeback)

"Kortland and I had been friends for years, and ran into each other at a restaurant shortly after his band Chatty Cathy ended. He told me he wanted to get into a new project, and I gave him the Pink Avalanche recordings to check out and see if he wanted to come over and play some time. When he came over he'd already learned all of the songs! I couldn't believe it. Our playing styles meshed instantly and he was in.

Adam and I had both played with Pete before in different projects and were both good friends with him, so we knew he was the bass player we wanted to ask. We set a date and got the four of us together in a room, and when we started playing it came together effortlessly."

Pink Avalanche's "Wraiths" album was released digitally on Past/Futures Records on May 28, 2013.
