UK headline tour confirmed for February 2024 including a date at The Old Fire Station in Bournemouth

Florence Black say: “The song is full of powerful imagery and metaphors. A candle bleeding light, suggests that something is slowly dying. Being on the back roads, which suggests being lost and alone. A lot of the lyrics lean towards finding the strength to stand up for yourself and to learn from your mistakes.” 

“Since our debut album release in 2021, we have been really busy touring in the UK and EU and, alongside our busiest touring year in 2022, we had written and demoed more than fifty songs. We spent a long time selecting and arranging our songs and feel that they are not just our best to date, but also the ones that show our development as a band. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved. BED OF NAILS is based around the theme of love. The good, the bad and everything in between that emotion. We had an amazing time in the studio recording it with Romesh. He has helped us to create the exact sound we were aiming for and we believe that we have achieved exactly what we had imagined the album to be.”

Back in 2021, the band’s standalone single ‘BIRD ON A CHAIN’ reached number 1 in the iTunes Rock chart. Their anticipated and critically acclaimed debut album WEIGHT OF THE WORLD followed in September, peaking at number 6 in the Official UK Rock & Metal Album Chart, Official UK Physical Album Sales Chart (#25), Official UK Independent Breakers Chart (#3) and Official UK Album Downloads Chart (#33). Singles from the album achieved their own successes: ‘CAN YOU FEEL IT?’ and fan-favourite ‘SUN AND MOON’ both became ‘Track of the Week’ in Classic Rock Magazine and both placed highly in the iTunes download chart on release. ‘SUN AND MOON’ was also added to Planet Rock Radio’s A-list and was highly praised by Kerrang! Magazine.

Florence Black kicked off 2022 with tours alongside Kris Barras Band and Ugly Kid Joe, followed by a tour as special guests on Steel Panther’s Res:Erections tour. In a year peppered with festival appearances across Europe and the UK, they embarked on their biggest performances yet, with two sold-out stadium shows to 90,000 fans in Frankfurt, opening for German giants Bohse Onkelz. Florence Black were immediately invited back out to join Bohse Onkelz on their completely sold-out arena run of Germany in August and September. The band rounded off their busiest, most successful live year to date with their own largely sold-out WEIGHT OF THE WORLD headline run in October.
