DEBUT ALBUM SET TO COME VIA NUCLEAR BLAST’S BLOOD BLAST DISTRO
Stoke-On-Trent’s metal bright lights Black Coast have released a brand new single and accompanying lyric video for ‘Vodka Smile’. The relentless, hard-hitting track is the second taken from their hotly-tipped debut album – due later this year via Nuclear Blast distro arm Blood Blast.
‘Vodka Smile’ explores a sentiment perhaps many can relate to, after vocalist Charlie Hewitt found himself coming to a personal realisation during the writing process of this song: “Originally Vodka Smile was written lyrically as a party song, that feeling of being so mangled and messed up that you have no idea whats going on. l always wanted to write a song like this – when l was in that frame of mind. It still scares me that l was so far gone and not accepting life itself for so long, l love the song don’t get me wrong but it takes me back to that lost, scary feeling when we play it.”
New single follows the band’s first release of 2021 ‘Paradise’, which saw strong support from on Kerrang! Radio, Triple J (Australia), Primordial Radio,Radio Fritz (Germany), Radio Bremen(Germany) and online glowing support from Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Dead Press, V13, Blunt Magazine,and Hysteria magazine to name a few.
Showcasing the band leaning into their heavier, hardcore roots with flashes of the modern ‘Nu Metal’ sound slewed across Paradise andcontinued sonic evolution. Tying this together with a new distribution deal and more festival slots we could certainly be witnessing a breakout year for the northern five-piece.
