While San Diego alt/prog-rock trio Pinback has kept a low profile recording-wise since 2012’s “Information Retrieved” album, principle members Zach Smith and Rob Crow have kept plenty busy. Guitarist Crow dropped 11 albums of new and previously unreleased material last year as part of his residency with Joyful Noise Recordings, while bassist Smith has kept up a steady stream of singles with side project Systems Officer. The duo, along with drummer Chris Prescott, have kept Pinback on the road throughout this year amidst a 15th-anniversary reissue of their 2004 Touch and Go Records debut “Summer in Abaddon,” a defining release that helped put the group’s hook-heavy guitar heroics and introspective songwriting on the musical map. Pinback will return to Volcanic Theatre Pub on Tuesday.
Pinback: 8 p.m. Tuesday; $20 plus fees in advance; Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Drive, Bend; volcanictheatre.com or 541-323-1881.
