Ariel Pink’s Pathway To Perversion

Armed with his new album, Los Angeles-based Ariel Pink releases a new single and reveals dates for London, Australia, U.S. and Canada.  Details after the jump.

Pom pom is the new LP from Ariel Pink aka Ariel Marcus Rosenberg.  Containing 17 tracks and a run time of 69 minutes, the disc is described as a collection of “infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O.” 

The album’s latest single is the new wave-ish “Black Ballerina.”

Ariel Pink and his new seven-person band will perform at London’s Scala Nov. 17, the same day pom pom arrives in stores.  He returns to his Southern California stomping grounds for a gig at Los Angeles’ Regent Theater Nov. 28.  However, the real touring action begins in late January with a run through Australia, followed by shows in the U.S. and Canada.
