Pinback's Zach Smith Hitting The Road With His Systems Officer Project

(PMA) Pinback and Three Mile Pilot multi-instrumentalist Armistead Burwell Smith IV aka Zach Smith will take his Systems Officer project on the road for the first time in September, treating West Coast fans to a string of performances.

Joining Smith on this outing are new (and permanent) S.O. recruits, Pinback drummer Chris Prescott and Temporary Residence Ltd. label mate Kenseth Thibideau.

Systems Officer is the solo guise of Armistead Burwell Smith IV, the songwriter and founding member of Pinback and Three Mile Pilot.

Written and recorded between breaks in the rigorous Pinback recording and touring schedule, the debut full-length effort titled Underslept showcases Smith's uncanny knack for creating thoughtful, complex pop songs.

Written, produced and performed by Smith in his home studio, Underslept features the same kind of intricate arrangements and layered vocal harmonies that have become a trademark of Pinback, with nods to the dramatic tone that marks the best Three Mile Pilot songs.
