10/23/13 - Today, we've decided to ditch the ol' HTML news for good. You can look through this for archival purposes, but there ain't gonna be no more html news posts. At least not in the forseeable future. Check out our Tumblr, Facebook, Reverbnation, and Blogger sites for up-to-date news (most of which have feeds and/or links here on the main PBR site. Thanks y'all!
10/20/12 - Tonight marks PBR's 90th concert of 2012. Its been a busy year on the road supporting our Tallboy CD. Thanks go out to so many for supporting our non-stop musical travels & adventures! Y'all're invited to come down to the Rock Harbor Bar in Rockland, ME to celebrate #90 with us!

10/9/11 - Pitch Black Ribbons has had a quick, short 2 weeks off from touring. Which was nice. We've been so busy as of late, which explains the long gaps of updating here on the news section. FB is much easier to update from the road, so again, check it for the most up to date info. However, show dates are easiest to upate here on the google calendar from the van - there's some humorous irony... Anyway, we've had some time to spend with fam, & friends, and time to run through some new material, songs that we'll hopefully unveil in a live setting in the upcoming months. So get ready for new sounds! We're excited about the new material, & we hope you are anticipating it too...
7/30/11 - OK. So tonight, we're just now wrapping up the 15th show of this month's tour, appropriately, I think, in our old stomping grounds of Portland, Maine @ Slainte Wine Bar. Needless to say, we've been kicking out the jams all over New England lately, and've been wicked busy, thusly. So I wanted to take a moment today to say: THANK YOU ALL - for coming out to support our endeavors, for buying the t-shirts & CDs, for clapping, cheering, and shaking our hands after the music is over. You people are the reason we're out here on the road, sharing our new sound and new music. If you've been to a show or two, or more, PLEASE take some time to share our music with your friends. Its important. Talk to your friends about our band. Spread the word. And BRING them out to a show!!! Because YOU are the way that the MUSIC get discovered. Its all thanks to you. See you out there soon... - Cody & Clint
