It’s taken five years, but Pinback, the soft-rock ensemble with a revolving cast of characters, is indeed back with mainstays Armistead Burwell Smith IV and Rob Crow promoting the group’s latest LP, Information Retrieved. Their fall tour will see the San Diego musicians sticking close to home, opening the concert series in California September 12 and traveling throughout the US and Canada until the Toronto, ON, finale November 21.

Scrolling through the group’s Wikipedia page you’ll find a list of former bandmates almost 20 names-long. Despite the high turnover, Pinback’s sound has remained relatively cohesive for the past 14 years. In that time, the indie artists have been featured on NPR as well as Pitchfork. See below for the latest incarnation of Pinback’s (Smith, Crow and drummer Chris Prescott) full concert schedule, and ticket links to upcoming shows:
