MUSIC NEWS: Black Peaks Reveal New Single ‘King’

Black Peaks have revealed their brand new single King, set for release on Friday 20th September via Rise Records/BMG. The surprise track is the band’s first new material since 2018’s sophomore album All That Divides.

“We had been working on a load of new song ideas, and this particular piece of music (which became King) was just a track that seemed to smoothly be completed really early on, musically at least if not vocally,” explains vocalist Will Gardner“Unfortunately this time coincided with myself getting very ill, making it pretty much impossible to do anything at all, let alone write, practice, record and sing, so the track stayed unflinished for ages.

“However, we had a really really amazing moment in July when everything just came together. I had this night when I couldn’t sleep and the chorus melody was just going round and round my head. I sat at my desk in the morning and the whole song just came out in one go, in like two hours of writing!

“I called Joe (Gosney, guitarist) and he drove over immediately, excited and a bit bewildered that I was so hyped on apparently finishing the song, I gathered enough strength to sing it through and record it, and it was done! To have been able to create a piece of music in such a difficult time has been one of the most challenging but rewarding things I’ve ever done and I’m so proud of what we as a band have made.”
