When Pennywise vocalist Jim Lindberg left the band last year after 20 years, nine studio albums, millions of records sold and countless sold-out tours, many people in the music world assumed that would be the last they had heard of Lindberg for a while.

They were wrong. Almost immediately after leaving the band, Lindberg-who also wrote much of the music for Pennywise-recruited drummer Alan Vega and teamed up with Far guitarist and producer Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Giant Drag) to flush out a batch of songs that see Lindberg moving in a more sonically varied and experimental direction without abandoning any of the aggression and energy of his previous act.

The result is the Black Pacific's debut full-length, a collection of energetic anthems that encompass all of Lindberg's influences and also see his songwriting taken to the next level.

"With this album there was definitely a sense that I had something to prove and sometimes that's a good motivator," Lindberg explains.

"This project has brought back a spirit of four guys just going into a room and jamming without any preconceptions.

I can't wait for people to hear it."
