Arguably two of the most hyped underground artists in the UK right now, Black Peaks and HECK have done the decent thing and embarked upon a co-headline tour. We caught them at Edinburgh’s Electric Circus to see what the fuss was all about.
Over the last 12 months Sussex based quartet Black Peaks have been a band that anyone with a keen interest in up & coming rock music in Britain has been keeping an eye on, after delivering some very promising singles and some outstanding sets at 2000 Trees, Hevy Fest and on tour with Lonely The Brave last year. Embarking on their first UK headline tour, we caught them at the famous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow to see if they're worth the hype.
Black Peaks are one of the most interesting bands in post-hardcore and metal music today, and Statues is a whirlwind of different styles within and without heavy music. It will subvert any opinions one may have that heavy music has become stale, and reassure audiences that an interesting, intense, incredible band can still attain a degree of mainstream recognition in the digital age.
Brighton four piece Black Peaks have just released their debut album Statues. With huge support from Radio 1, the quartet are set to become one of the biggest British bands around. We caught up with frontman Will Gardner to talk about their debut album, Download Festival and more.
