Pacific Rim Tour: August '10

Horace Pinker has played in more than 19 countries all over the world from Europe to Brazil to Australia, and continues to play punk rock clubs, halls, and basements. They have played some of the biggest festivals on the circuit, including the Dynamo Open Air in the Netherlands, Popkomm in Germany, Belgiumís Groezrock and the 2007 Vans ZonaPunk Tour in Brazil.

Although some are quick to point out that they never achieved commercial success over the years or sell-out tours like so many of their peers, HP continues to defy the trends and release records with thoughtful lyrics and powerful music that cannot be pinned down to a simple category or genre.

Since their formation they have toured North America with Agent Orange, Jawbreaker, All Systems Go and have shared the stage with the likes of Green Day, Bad Religion, Fugazi, Rise Against, Blink 182, The OffSpring, and Jimmy Eat World (just to name a few).

They have appeared on over 30 compilations around the world, 12 EP's (including a split with Face To Face and a EP on Fat Wreck Chords), top-selling DVD video compilations Cinema Beer Nuts (Hopeless) and Punk Broadcast System (Coldfront), numerous network and cable TV shows and features in magazines such as Maximum Rock nĎ Roll and Punk Planet.

They have toured the world relentlessly for the releases of Power Tools (Justice), Burn Tempe To The Ground (Onefoot), critically acclaimed Pop Culture Failure (Jump Up!) and Copper Regret (Coldfront) that featured Chris Bauermeister formerly of Jawbreaker on bass, Red-Eyed Regular (OffTime), Texas One Ten (Thick), and the retrospective Carnival Nostalgia: 2000-2006 (Enemy One).

Reviews have focused on the bandsí commitment to combine their trademark pop hooks with the buzz of a two-guitar attack, aggressive pop punk sound that eludes categorization by blurring the lines between multiple genres. 2010 has the band in the studio recording the follow up to 2005ís Texas One Ten as well as touring China, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
