UK rock quintet Black Lakes have released a video for their new single “Hurricane”. The track is taken from their upcoming second album Dead Gods, due for release later this year.  

The band comments
“Hurricane is a political commentary on the hopeful aspirations and expectations placed on world leaders by those desperate for salvation, from a societal set that will never provide it. The hurricane comes and repeatedly and relentlessly washes away each and every expectation whilst we, the people, are left begging for salvation.” 

Ahead of the album Black Lakes have released The Dark EP, which features “Hurricane”, previous single “White Cliffs” and an unreleased demo of “Maze” from the Dead Gods recording sessions. 

Black Lakes’ sound blurs the boundaries between hard rock and alternative metal, drawing on a wide range of influences from across both genres.
Formed in 2018, Black Lakes successfully crowdfunded the production and release of their 2022 critically acclaimed debut album For All We’ve Left Behind. Produced by Romesh Dodangoda, the album achieved several notable accolades, including “Album Of The Year” by four different media outlets.
The singles from For All We’ve Left Behind enjoyed extensive airplay across national radio, including BBC Radio, Kerrang! Radio and Planet Rock Radio. The album was further bolstered by features in Fireworks, Power Play and Emerging Rock Bands Magazine.

Black Lakes have worked hard to build a reputation as a captivating live act, picking up new fans from across the UK, and are always striving to build on their previous shows to create something bigger and better for their growing fanbase to enjoy. Notable live appearances include Planet Rockstock, The Loverocks, Wildfire and SOS.
Following the success of their crowdfunding campaign for their debut album, Black Lakes ran a pre-order campaign via their webstore to fund their upcoming second album Dead Gods. The band have sold over 200 copies of the upcoming album to date, raising over £6000 to help fund the production of the record.
