I knew it was only a matter of time that we saw former Pennywise singer Jim Lindberg in another band. The new band is called The Black Pacific and features all new music, but don’t be scared. The music is similar to what you normally would hear Jim singing, plus some screaming vocals in there as well. I like what I hear so far! The band will be appearing at KROQ’s Epicenter Twenty Ten Festival in Fontana, California on September 26th.
After twenty years of touring and releasing records with Pennywise, Jim Lindberg has started a new band straight out of Hermosa Beach. THE BLACK PACIFIC is a brand new band with a fresh line up and an album filled with ten powerful and heartfelt songs. Jim and the guys will be playing their first show on September 26 at KROQ’s Epicenter Twenty Ten festival in Fontana, CA. Their self titled debut album hits on September 14 on SideOneDummy Records.
Jim left Pennywise in 2009 and has been working on The Black Pacific ever since. He also penned a book in 2007 called Punk Rock Dad: No Rules, Just Real Life. They recently posted two new songs on their website. “The System” and “When it’s Over.”
