Ringo Deathstarr announce debut album

| On 04, Nov 2010

Austin, Texas based Ringo Deathstarr have announced that their debut album Colour Trip, will be released through Club AC30 Records on Monday February 14th 2011.

Having formed in 2007 and channeling influences such as The Cure, The Smiths, Fugazi and The Velvet Underground, Ringo Deathstarr have previously released a batch of singles on both sides of the Atlantic and in Japan – a self titled EP in 2007 and most recently, in 2009, a brace of 7”s in the States, You Don’t Listen In Love and a 9-track Japanese mini-album, Sparkler.

Recorded quickly and recalling the pop thrill and sonic squall of prime-time Mary Chain or Strawberry Wine era MBV, their debut album,Colour Trip, has already been lauded by the likes of Pitchfork and Nylon, who recently ran a double page spread on the band, over in the U.S.
