BIOGRAPHY

IMG_7924.jpg

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

 

Their debut album 'For All We've Left Behind' was recorded in the Welsh capital with premier hard rock and metal producer Romesh Dodangoda and released in Feb of 2022 to critical acclaim, including being named Album Of The Year by four different outlets including ERB Magazine & East London Radio. The various singles released from the album were played extensively across national radio including ERB, Kerrang! and the BBC.

 

The band have been playing in support of their debut since its release and have built up a passionate following across the UK and online, playing several notable festivals including Planet Rockstock, Wildfire and Loverocks.   

 

BLACK | LAKES are currently concluding work on their sophomore album whilst continuing to play live across the UK. With a string of live dates booked throughout 2023/24, the band are keen to build on the momentum that's been created to date, and remain incredibly focussed on what comes next.
