Pink Awful began proper when vocalist Ashley Costelloe connected with guitarist Mike Miller via Craigslist in 2015. Costelloe added vocals and lyrics to old demos Miller had created with no intention of them ever seeing the light. The sound gelled after a couple years with the addition of Dwight Struthers on bass, John Walker on drums, and Daniel Lawson on guitar. New blood meant new energy and a whole new spectrum of influences to explore.
The band’s first full length, Potboiler, was released in July of 2018, with a brief West Coast tour following. Since then the band has kept busy writing new music, playing shows and recording singles to be released with accompanying videos over the coming months.
