Black Peaks

Brighton 4 piece BLACK PEAKS release their huge, brand new single 'Electric Fires' today, Friday 3rd August. It is the 3rd new single this year, and the band will be releasing their hugely anticipated, Adrian Bushby produced (Grammy award winner for Muse, Foo Fighters) 2nd album 'All That Divides', on October 5th through Rise Records/BMG. 

Check out the single 'Electric Fires' here:


Front man Will Gardner said of the new single "'Electric Fires was one of the first songs we wrote for All That Divides, and was one that had a few live outings towards the end of the Statues tour. The song in many ways is one of our most straight-forward. Lyrically the song is a bit of a sarcastic comment on the beliefs of certain conspiracy theorists, Flat-Earthers etc. Essentially we just had fun with that idea, and wrote a song about how our Alien forefathers came here from Mars at the dawn of civilisation to build the pyramids, which, of course, 100% totally happened. Stay woke, kids."

Will Gardner on 'All That Divides' also said, "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 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."

The band will also be on a full UK and European tour after the album release, with some incredible supports in tow. ALL dates and supports are below, with Worthing and London already SOLD OUT:
