Brighton four-piece Black Peaks make their return with the album All That Divides, which is set for release on 5th October. The new single ‘Home’ can be heard below.
Frontman Will Gardner says this about the track, “We were writing the song against the backdrop of a lot of uncertainty with regards to personal and political 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.”
Following on from the recent headline dates and tour with Marmozets, Black Peaks will be playing a host of summer festivals including 2000trees, ArcTanGent and Reading and Leeds. The band is also out on tour in Europe with A Perfect Circle through June, followed by their own headline tour of the UK in the autumn.
