Lauren Laverne

Manchester five-piece PINS have announced their new single Serve The Rich, produced by The Kills’ Jamie Hince, which is released on 22nd September via Haus of PINS.

Bold, edgy and deliriously addictive, Serve The Rich follows on from PINS recent Bad Thing EP release, which included the single Aggrophobe featuring Iggy Pop. Undeniably PINS, but with a fresh and unique sound, the Manchester fivepiece enlisted The Kills’ Jamie Hince to produce the track. PINS say;

“Jamie played us a reworked version of the demo and we were all blown away. I felt like he’d reached into my head and created the sound I’d been imagining.”

“The track is about how sometimes we feel like we only exist to make money for other people, it’s a swizz. We are promised things by saviours, these people who have come to rescue us, but it’s not true. Serve The Rich was my opportunity to assert myself’ I’m saying that we as PINS, musicians, women, Labour voters and feminists, are here to save the kids, we’re here to save each other, we’re here to save ourselves.”

Recent EP Bad Thing, which received radio support from the likes of Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq at 6Music, culminated in a short film, largely shot in the band’s hometown of Manchester, featuring 5 separate videos for each track on the EP which made up one 20-minute film.

PINS will be touring the UK and Ireland in November and the new live dates follow the band’s recent spring headline tour, which included a sold out show at London’s Moth Club, their support shows with Maximo Park and a host of summer festival performances including Reading & Leeds and Festival No.6.
