Black Peaks Announce Their New Album And A UK Tour

Brighton 4 piece Black Peaks recently announced their second album All That Divides will be produced by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) and is scheduled for release on 5th October via Rise Records/BMG. Their new single Home is available to be listened to online now.

Vocalist Will Gardner states: “We were writing the song against the backdrop of a lot of uncertainty with regards to political and personal identity. We were out on tour in mainland Europe in mid-2016, during a period where we, as British citizens, felt like decisions being made on behalf of our ‘home’ did not represent us. There is an uneasy feeling of severance that happens when you are not physically at home during a time of transformation. Our feelings of disconnection and division from our country and its people, coupled with tour fatigue and cabin fever, made for some of the most difficult times we have experienced; as a band, as friends and as people”.

“Lyrically, at least, this album represents the fear of a future where freedom is restricted. Over the last two years we, as a band, have been incredibly lucky to have been able to travel across Europe and play our music. This happened to take place during a period where various political changes, at home and abroad, made us focus a lot about the freedom and right to travel. We have seen people, families, relationships and countries divided by conflict and political upheaval, and our reaction to this is a core lyrical theme running through the album”.

The album is available to be preordered -HERE-.

I'm a metal fan that gets pumped about most music. I am also into Punk but not as heavily bands, I sort of like include; Sunn O))), The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Exploited and Amon Amarth. I also like comedic music such as Alestorm, Psychostick and Evil Scarecrow
