As announced on the Radio 1 Rock Show last night, Brighton’s Black Peaks are heading out on a UK tour in February with Colchester Arts Centre one their destinations.

Their influences are drawn from the most broad and varied wells imaginable: from the sprawling, wide-eyed prog-isms of The Mars Volta to the lead-fingered riffing of Mastodon to the deft melodicism of City And Colour and plenty more besides there are touches from almost every edge of the musical palette in Black Peaks’remarkable offering. This is spasmodic, esoteric, heart-shaking stuff that pitches and rolls, rises and falls in turn with both delicate grace and thunderous power.

Their penchant for leaving heads spinning and jaws on the floor is most ably demonstrated through a live show best described as frenetic to the point of exorcistic. That unswerving dedication to carving out the most exquisitely euphoric onstage displays possible has led to high profile support slots with the likes of Pelican, Deafheaven and Jamie Lenman as well as appearances at virtually every festival the UK has to offer. From there, support from Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Daniel P Carter has followed alongside the enthusiastic patronage from Zane Lowe who described the band as “Exceptional”. And with a landmark record deal to Easy Life Records / Sony RED now signed, the band are gearing up to unveil their first LP, Statues, in early 2016.

You’ll find Black Peaks at Colchester Arts Centre on Sunday 14th February 2016. 

Tickets are priced at £10 and go on sale this Wednesday. They will be available HERE or via the box office on 01206 500900.
