B  L  A  C  K   |  L  A  K  E  S  create a sound which deliberately blurs the boundaries between melodic hard rock and alternative metal, drawing on a wide range of influences from across both scenes.

Their independent debut EP was recorded in the Welsh capital with premier hard rock and metal producer Romesh Dodangoda. Their latest single 'Fragments', has been picked up across national radio including ERB radio, Kerrang! and the BBC. 

Despite the impact of the pandemic, 2020 was full of highlights for the band. These including being named both a GREAT MUSIC STORIES band of the year, and Live band of the year, a critically acclaimed redux set released exclusively for the Spirt of Wildfire festival and making the final of the HARD ROCK HELL - Highway to Hell competition at the 02 Academy - Sheffield.  

B  L  A  C  K   |  L  A  K  E  S have launched and not only successfully completed, but exceeded their gofundme campaign to support the recording of their highly anticipated debut album which is now scheduled for a 2021 release.  The band will be in the studio early in the summer.
