It’s been since the 2013 studio release of Truthful Lies that we’ve seen any material released by Mike Pinto. On May 26th, he’ll officially release his new single “Peace of Mind” via iTunes ahead of his upcoming acoustic tour.
It’s been a couple years since we’ve seen an active Mike Pinto as he acknowledges that: “I’ve been here and there, writing songs, a couple stories, walking the Earth like Samuel Jackson did at the end of Pulp Fiction. After a brief hiatus, I’ve got to say things are pretty damn well on my end.”
With regards towards his first single back, Mike told The Pier: “I got the pleasure of working with renowned Philadelphia producer Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Lotus) at Kawari Sound, and the track was mastered properly by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys). It’s got a ‘One Love’ meets the Beatles vibe to it. Perfect for a laid-back summer track.”
