Brighton four-piece Black Peaks return with their blistering new single, Can’t Sleep, which recently debuted on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show as their Rockest Record [Track of the Week] and included a live on-air interview with the band.
Can’t Sleep is the band’s first new material in almost two years.
The band also recently announced that they will be playing live across the UK in May with the incredible Marmozets, followed by a number of high profile festivals in the summer, and can now also announce that they have signed to the brilliant Rise Records [PVRIS, Of Mice & Men, At the Drive In etc].
Following a whirlwind couple of years promoting their debut album Statues, Black Peaks returned to the studio in December 2017 with multiple Grammy Award winning producer Adrian Bushby at the helm (Muse, Foo Fighters, Dashboard Confessional) to record the follow-up.
Can’t Sleep is the first taster of that album, and gives a strong indication of the growth of the band’s sound. This new single is also the first with new bass player Dave Larkin, who joined the band following the departure of founding bass player Andrew Godson.
Following UK and European shows and tours with the likes of Deftones – at Wembley Arena as main support – Profits of Rage and System of a Down, as well as their own sold-out tours, the band will be playing a small selection of shows in May as support to Marmozets to celebrate the release of Can’t Sleep.
