The album is now available for pre-order HERE.
The band made their triumphant return in early March with the infectious first single, “Dummy,” which was praised by Billboard as an “an apocalyptic jingle.” “Dummy” arrived with an official music video directed by Noel Paul and starred the band’s new, honorary member, Tank Dog. Created by Wes Hubbard (Wooden Cyclops) and John Gourley, Tank Dog is PTM’s newest sidekick – Watch HERE.
CHRIS BLACK CHANGED MY LIFE is the band’s first full length album since the release of their Platinum-certified, 2017 album, WOODSTOCK. The album’s opening song, “Heavy Games II (feat. Jeff Bhasker),” teased the forthcoming album with a companion visual featuring and produced by Jeff Bhasker. The album is dedicated to the band’s late friend and honorary band member, Chris Black.
The band teamed up with collaborators Paul Williams (John Lennon, David Bowie, Mac Miller), Sean Leon (Justin Bieber, Kanye West), Black Thought (The Roots), Unknown Mortal Orchestra (David Bowie, Gorillaz), Jeff Bhasker (Beyonce, Harry Styles, SZA, Mark Ronson) and Natalia Lafourcade (Miguel, Raphael) on the highly anticipated album.
The Portland-based rockers will follow the release of CHRIS BLACK CHANGED MY LIFE with very few headline shows for 2023. Featuring a career spanning set, each show will take place at an iconic venue this summer, including Portland’s Edgefield, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl.
