One little rock and roll tradition that I attempt to keep alive with some success is the idea of having a Pinx Christmas single (PinXmas). It doesn’t happen every year but the first the world ever heard of us was “Father Christmas”, which came out before our first record. I’ll never forget being relatively new in Atlanta, driving around looking at Christmas lights while drinking a to-go cup of hot chocolate, and hearing The Pinx come on a local rock station. I remember the DJs were laughing and saying “What was THAT? If that’s anything like what this new Atlanta band The Pinx is going to sound like, we need more!” And that pushed me to finish the first record, and the idea that with one simple tap, the shell cracked and let me in; Atlanta was already excited to hear more. Well, this Christmas you not only get PinXmas but PinXStaXMas. Stay tuned. – Adam McIntyre
