Black Peaks Have Signed To Rise Records

…and they've released a magnificent new single, too.

Black Peaks Have Signed To Rise Records

The mighty Black Peaks have signed to Rise Records, and released a brand-new single, Can't Sleep – their first with new bassist Dave Larkin. Big news.

"The song was written in response to a very difficult time for the band and myself personally," says frontman Will Gardner. "Since writing Statues, our political environment has seen a big shift, and some extremely xenophobic and racist comments and actions have been aired in the media, at whom a lot of the anger and fire in these lyrics is directed. Whatever your view is politically, this song deals anxiety, paranoia and insomnia, all stemming from being swept along with a decision you do not agree with."

The band have also announced that they'll be supporting the equally-awesome Marmozets in May.

Catch them at the following:


4 Norwich Waterfront
7 Exeter Lemon Grove
9 Northampton Roadmender
10 Covetry Kasbah
11 Oxford O2 Academy
