BLACK FUTURES – THE ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM ‘NEVER NOT NOTHING’ OUT NOW
VIA MUSIC FOR NATIONS
Sonic anarchists Black Futures have released one the most exciting and eagerly anticipated debuts of 2019 Never Not Nothing is available everywhere now via Music For Nations.
Never Not Nothing offers an innovative collection of apocalyptic anthems emanating from a source of caustic melody and infectious distortion. It’s a further revelation from their vision of a crumbling world, inhabited by a cast of random reprobates and shot through with a sardonic British humour.
Black Futures bring together the calm and the chaos, delivering an ingenious sound clash of distorted rock energy and dance-inducing electronics that form the back bone of this incendiary debut.
Ahead of release, the duo caused mayhem and mystery around the globe, from kidnapping music industry executives to performing in an abandoned Russian Cold War bunker in Berlin, erecting a monolithic logo in the middle of a hippy commune in Joshua Tree as well as filming amid tropical heat in the metropolis of Tokyo.
Never Not Nothing is a fearless album which features a string of breakthrough hits that have garnered support from the likes of Radio 1 (Annie Mac, Daniel P Carter, Phil Taggart), 6 Music (Steve Lamacq) and Radio X.
It includes the recently shared Body & Soul which followed the band’s previous releases Tunnel Vision (an unrelenting Krautrock-inspired explosion), Love (a gritty slab of industrial rave), Karma Ya Dig!? (a psychedelic anthem of solidarity), Riches (think NIN-meets-MGMT), Trance (a euphoric-rock bliss-blast) and the corroded Kasabian garage-glam of Me.TVwhich featuring a call-to-arms monologue from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie.
Live Black Futures’ anarchic shows have seen them acclaimed as turbulent force on the gigging circuit following a string of incredible performances supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes as well as a number of mind-blowing festival appearances at All Points East, Camden Rocks, Download Festival and Glastonbury.
They are now set to continue their breakthrough year supporting Black Peaks across the UK throughout October.
Live dates can be found below – with more to be announced soon.
