FLORENCE BLACK ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM ‘WEIGHT OF THE WORLD’, SET FOR RELEASE ON SEPTEMBER 17

Bowed by their fans exultant reaction to their latest single ‘Sun & Moon’ last Friday, fast-rising Welsh rockers FLORENCE BLACK have unveiled plans for their debut album.

Set for release on September 17th and titled ‘Weight of The World’, the ten-track beast was laid down in Wales at Long Wave Recording Studio with producer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Motorhead, Sylosis, Holding Absence).

Charismatic vocalist Tristan Thomas, who designed the album’s artwork as well, states, “‘Weight Of The World’ is the culmination of our time as Florence Black. It’s a mixture of songs written at our very beginning and brand new material just created, blended together and shaped into one. The pressure and anticipation of releasing our debut album, feels like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders, especially with waiting what has felt like since the beginning of time to get it recorded and released. We wanted that reflected in the title and the artwork. Not to mention, with Romesh Dodangoda’s production, the sound is as heavy as Planet Earth too!”

The track listing is:

1. Zulu

2. Inside Out

3. On The Ropes

4. Sun & Moon

5. Can You Feel It?

6. Grove Street

7. Black Cat

8. The Deep End

9. So Far Away

10. The Light

For the uninitiated, Merthyr Tydfil’s FLORENCE BLACK are a young band of self-taught, childhood friends: lead vocalist/guitarist Tristan Thomas, bassist/backing vocalist Jordan Evans, and drummer/backing vocalist Perry Davies. The group have released three EPs to date, with previous single ‘Bird On A Chain’ clinching #1 in the UK iTunes rock chart and amassing over 2.1 million streams to date.

Before announcing the album, the band shared two early singles to give fans a hint of what’s in store – the pile-driving rocker ‘Can You Feel It?‘, with a video directed by While She Sleeps’ Aaran McKenzie, and the summery, toe-tapping smash ‘Sun & Moon‘, with a self-made video in the beautiful Welsh countryside local to them. Both tracks blasted straight into the top echelons of the UK iTunes rock chart on release. Such is the ground swell of support for the band, FLORENCE BLACK have already captured Classic Rock’s fan-voted Track Of The Week accolade, not once, but twice.
