LA's king of pop perversion Ariel Pink returns with his new album pom pom, with its second offering in the form of new wave-flavored 'Black Ballerina'.
Spanning 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel, a pied piper of the absurd, with infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. With the Los Angeles native striking it out alone and returning to the solo moniker he has adopted for well over a decade, pom pom could very well be Ariel Pink's magnum opus.
Ariel will bring his new 7-person strong band to perform at London's Scala on the day of pom pom's UK release - November 17th and today announces his first 2015 North American tour dates. This tour will conclude with Ariel's biggest NYC headlining show to date, at Terminal 5.
pom pom is Ariel Pink's third studio album for 4AD, following his Haunted Graffiti releases Before Today (2010) and Mature Themes (2012).
