Black Peaks at Leeds 02 Academy on 2 February

Black Peaks recently released singe FATE I from their second album All That Divides, awarded 2018 Album of The Year by Upset Magazine, and they are set to support Enter Shikari at Leeds 02 Academy on 2 February.

Watch the video for FATE I here.

NME gave All That Divides 5/5 and said “With All That Divides, the band delivers an album that’s confident, stylistically cohesive, and points towards their ascending star in the future.  If there’s one thing that this album shows, it’s that Black Peaks are a force to be reckoned with

UPSET MAGAZINE – who put the band on the cover of their September issue – also gave the album 5/5 and said “Black Peaks bellow unity from the rooftops. It’s not a political record but it does dish out the blame. Rather than dwelling in the mire, though, Black Peaks want hope. They need it. A call to arms entwined, it’s a record of struggle and resistance. It doesn’t have the answers but it knows they’re out there and it wants us to find them together.

THE INDEPENDENT stated “Their sublime second album is massive in every sense of the word. Bringing in Adrian Bushby [Foo Fighters, Muse] was a masterstroke – his production plays a big part in how it offers up vast sonic landscapes that take you on an intense, emotional journey via album highlight Aether, across Slow Seas, and closing on Fate I & II. This feels like a real achievement.

Black Peaks performed a special one-off show for BBC Radio 1 in Swansea as headliner for their Biggest Weekend Fringe Festival. In the summer, the band played a host of UK and EU festivals including ArcTanGent, Fat Lip, Leeds and Reading, and 2000 Trees.
