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 'Deathrone', taken from those sessions, has been picked up across national radio including Rock on the Rise, Kerrang! and the BBC.
2020 has been littered with highlights for the band including being named a GREAT MUSIC STORIES band of the year, and making the final of the HARD ROCK HELL - Highway to Hell competition at the 02 Academy.
B L A C K | L A K E S have successfully launched a gofundme campaign to support the recording of their highly anticipated debut album which is now scheduled for a 2021 release. The band will be back in the studio early in the New Year.
