MUSIC NEWS: Black Peaks Announce New Album & Tour Dates
Black Peaks have confirmed that they’ll be releasing their new album All That Divides on the 5th October via Rise Records/BMG.
“Lyrically at least, this album represents the fear of a future where freedom is restricted,” explains vocalist Will Gardner. “Over the last two years, we as a band have been incredibly lucky to have been able to travel accross Europe and play our music. The fact 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.”
To coincide with the announcement, the band have released a new single called Home which you can check out below.
