Pinact becoming a more complete band

Scottish indie punk band Pinact is gearing up to release their sophomore album, “The Part That No One Knows” on Aug. 25, a record that exemplifies a band finding their identity.

The production is cleaner, the songs are catchier and the band is now a three-piece with the addition of bassist Jon Arbuthnott. Compared to the band’s low-fi debut “Stand Still and Rot,” the band honed their pop songwriting without losing their fuzz and edge. Pinact just kicked off a short run of east coast dates to promote the upcoming album before its release, stopping in New Haven on Aug. 1.
