Pain In The Yeahs, often referred to as PITY is the music of Virginia native James Wagner. The project started in 2012 as an escape of sorts from playing in a long line of hardcore bands with varying degrees of notoriety. The first demos were constructed at home when roommates were out, using a second-hand keyboard, freeware recording software and a limited understanding of audio engineering. The early material took influence from the stripped down nature of The Cure’s Pornography, whereas the current and evolving sound takes cues from new wave, proto punk and various eras of rock and roll.
