Pinegrove sign to Rough Trade + share ‘Moment’

Excited to announce Pinegrove‘s signing to Rough Trade Records. The band share their first new music under the label – ‘Moment.’

Pinegrove’s singer/songwriter/guitarist Evan Stephens Hall says of this new song, “‘Moment’ for me was a way of thinking about gratitude in the context of chaos or tedium. This last stanza says directly what i say more obliquely in the verses, zeroing in after a meandering route”:
I’m in this moment
& i can’t see past it
I’m in this disaster
I’m in this traffic
& it keeps on going
but it keeps me asking
what’s in this moment?

Pinegrove were formed in 2010 in Montclair, NJ by childhood friends Evan Stephens Hall and drummer Zack Levine. With roots in their hometown DIY scene, they emerged from the depths of Bandcamp with a collection of articulate, emotionally complex songs that resonated deeply with an eager audience. Evan’s superlative songwriting – informed as much by country and folk influences as the punk rock scene of his peers – and matched by the band’s electrifying, joyous live shows quickly gained them a cult following. Over the space of two studio albums – 2016’s Cardinal and 2018’s Skylight – and extensive touring, Pinegrove blossomed into a success story, filling theatres around the world with fans eager to commune with their songs of “empathy, introspection and compassion.”
