The Zigzag Manoeuvre might be the description of Ping in 2014, navigating their way out of the ashes of their studio/rehearsal room for thirteen years. When the dust had settled, most of the instruments were immolated, but crucially, all unpublished pieces of music survived.

 

The song “A Hammer Falling from the Sky”, which can be heard on the album, was recorded just two days before the studio went up in flames. A long and arduous process later, with a slight change of personnel, Ping now re-emerges with a roller coaster record, destined to inspire or dull the masses.
Expect hiccups and downs, mental order and disorientation, out-of-tune harmonics, as well as motivating and unsettling lyrics.

 

Available on CD, regular LP (black vinyl) and limited LP on turquoise/black marble vinyl.

PING - playing experimental Norwegian rock since last millennium. Inspiration from diverse artists like Zappa, Melvins, Fred Frith, Ween, dEUS,
Tom Waits and Wilco can be heard through all albums, combining elements from 60´s roots to modern metal and electronica. The process of
arranging and recording is unorthodox, where humour and spontaneity is highly appreciated; creative use of various instruments and vocal
arrangements flow through a number of genres.
