Upcoming release: "River Black"

Release date: Fri, Jul 07 2017, US Fri, Jul 07 2017

RIVER BLACK are releasing the third hard hitting track taken from their self-titled debut album, 'River Black', which has been scheduled for release on July 7th. Listen to "Boat" below.

The American modern metal pioneers in the wake of BURNED BY THE SUN are now streaming the song "Boat" here.

RIVER BLACK vocalist Mike Olender comments: "Our song 'Boat' addresses the challenge that humanity faces to do the right thing for the right reasons. We all aspire to be better people than we are - and few people genuine think that they are a bad person, because we all have our ways of justifying our feelings and our behaviors to ourselves. Our paths are ultimately dictated by the fragility of the human spirit and our instinct to survive. Fate has a way of setting the stage for where we will go and who we are. Simply put, there's little use escaping human nature. Lyrically, this song is a bridge between where BURNT BY THE SUN dissolved and this new project began."

Biography

River_black-5575-scott_kinkade

RIVER BLACK deliver the musical equivalent to a diamond-tipped drill to bore breathing-holes into the crusty rusted armour-plating of the metal-genre in order to let some fresh air into the all too often stale scene.

Their powerful self-titled debut album impresses with undiluted aggression, precisely executed and dead on target. Based on an intimate knowledge of thrash metal history, the Americans have found a modern answer to this classic style, incorporating suitable elements of death, hardcore, and other influences. This is boosted by a massive sound that drops the bomb in your face.

The expertise that RIVER BLACK demonstrate in craft and talent does not come out of the blue. Guitarist John Adubato and drummer David Witte (MUNICIPAL WASTE) formed their new creative outlet after the dissolution of BURNT BY THE SUN. The veteran duo felt the need to keep the spirit and energy behind that former collective going, while pushing it a darker and heavier direction. To complete their dream team, Witte and Adubato recruited fellow REVOCATION bassist Brett Bamberger and former BURNT BY THE SUN collaborator Mike Olender for vocal duties.

On completion of their line-up, RIVER BLACK recorded their first album at New Jersey’s Trax East studio (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, HATEBREED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) with producer Eric Rachel (SKID ROW, MUNICIPAL WASTE, GOD FORBID).

RIVER BLACK are now ready to drive a vicious spike into the bubble of metallic complacency. Crank up the volume and let 'River Black' hit home hard. Impact is imminent…
