Pearl Welcomes Joey Baca of The Contortionist

Pearl Drums is proud to welcome Joey Baca- of the tech-metal heavyweights, The Contortionist- to the Pearl Drums Artist Roster!  Known for his complex, heavy, and often-oddly-timed grooves, Joey Baca has been the driving force behind The Contortionist since their inception into the progressive metal world back in 2007.  Currently the band is gearing up for a four-week-long US tour which will run from September 13th through October 11th, and comes in support of their forthcoming studio album, Language.  A full list of tour dates can be found below.

Upon coming on board with Pearl Drums, Joey Baca turned to the powerful tones of Pearl’s Session Studio Classic drums, finished in the stunning Vintage Copper Sparkle lacquer (361) - a new finish option for 2014.  Joey’s Session Studio Classic drums served as the go-to tones used throughout the recording process of Languages, and will also serve as Joey’s touring kit throughout the Languages tour cycle.  Joey’s full specs can be found here.
