Pink Mountaintops performed a new tune, “You Can Dream,” at FYF Fest in Los Angeles back in September. Thanks to Sammy Warren for filming this! The band is going on a short west coast tour later this month before heading to Europe – check out the dates on our tour page.

Steve McBean’s Pink Mountaintops will be traveling across Europe this November as a duo – he’ll be joined by American musician Gregg Foreman (Cat Power, Delta 72).
If you didn’t catch this earlier it’s worth mentioning again – Pink Mountaintops perform as “Metal Problem” in the new movieEverything Louder Than Everything Else and play a new song that totally rules called “Through All the Worry.”
Steve McBean and his band, Pink Mountaintops, were cast and appear as the band Metal Problem in the new film by Vancouver director Rob Leickner, Everything Louder Than Everything Else. The movie follows a woman who owns a recording studio, and Metal Theory records the song “Through All The Worry,” a new song by Pink Mountaintops. Steve McBean also performs in the movie (with lines and everything!). I totally buy that he’s in a rock band.
Pink Mountaintops recently remixed Lia Ices’ “Love Is Won” from Grown Unknown. Our friends at RCDRD LBL put it best:
What starts as just voice and piano slowly builds to a crescendo with layers of electronic noise, a subtle electric guitar playing country licks, and heartbeat-like drumming. It maintains the restrained, dramatic performances of Grown Unknown while still adding a bit of bombast.
