Though 2015 saw Rob Crow claim he was quitting music—and putting his long-standing band Pinback to bed—he returned a few months later with both a new band and renewed vigor. On March 4, Temporary Residence Ltd. will release You’re Doomed. Be Nice., the first record from Crow’s latest project, Rob Crow’s Gloomy Place. The A.V. Club is premiering the video for the Gloomy Place track, “Business Interruptus,” which is deceptively bouncy given the project’s overwhelmingly dismal moniker. Striking a balance between Pinback‘s more straightforward material and Crow’s solo work, “Business Interruptus” signals the start of a new era, one that finds the ability to shine in spite of any perceived gloominess.
Pre-orders for You’re Doomed. Be Nice. are available through Temporary Residence Ltd.
