Unleash Them: Black Peaks Signs Deal with Rise Records!

Brighton four-piece BLACK PEAKS have released the new single “Can’t Sleep.” It’s their first new material in nearly two years. The band is also newly signed to Rise Records.

Watch the “Can’t Sleep” video here.

Following a whirlwind few years promoting the incredible debut album Statues, Black Peaks returned to the studio in December 2017. They did so with multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse, Dashboard Confessional, Everything Everything) at the helm to record the follow up.

“Can’t Sleep” is the first taste of that album and gives a very strong indication of the growth of the band’s sound, as well as showcasing their key sonic ingredients. The new single is also the first for new bass player Dave Larkin, who joined the band back in late 2017 following the departure of founding bassist Andrew Gosden.

Vocalist Will Gardner says, “The song was written in response to a very difficult time for the band and myself personally. 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.”

Larkin adds, “We haven’t wasted any time since I joined the band. We were straight into writing and finishing off ideas for this album and it all came together so naturally. Getting into the studio with Ade (producer Adrian Bushby) was definitely the right decision for all of us. He has an incredible high-energy approach to producing and was just as hyped on everything as we were. We’re all so proud of these songs — the end result is massive.”
