|THE ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM
NEVER NOT NOTHING
VIA MUSIC FOR NATIONS
SUPPORTING BLACK PEAKS ON TOUR
“An album filled with songs that are stand-alone Herculean anthems” – Upset 5/5
“Arguably the debut album of the year already” – Classic Rock 9/10
“A brilliant collection of future punk songs that are very much a product of our troubled times… the perfect soundtrack with which to meet the apocalypse” – Kerrang 4/5
“Sizzling rock’n’roll and truckloads of swagger clash in a shower of sequins on this industrial punk outfit’s bold boundary pushing debut” – Rock Sound, ‘Perfect 10’
“An immersive blend of industrial noise-punk, alt-rock and swelling synths [that] occupies a space somewhere between Nine Inch Nails and Death from Above 1979… Black Futures have crafted an anarchic call to arms” – Metal Hammer 8/10
“There are enough off kilter festival singalongs on Never Not Nothing to make any Neo-psychedelic alternative rockers happy” – Aesthetica
Sonic anarchists Black Futures have released one the most exciting and eagerly anticipated debuts of 2019 Never Not Nothing. The album has received huge praise from the likes of Classic Rock, Kerrang, The Independent, Rock Sound and more and is available everywhere now via Music For Nations.
Never Not Nothing offers an innovative collection of apocalyptic anthems emanating from a source of caustic melody and infectious distortion. It’s a further revelation from their vision of a crumbling world, inhabited by a cast of random reprobates and shot through with a sardonic British humour.
Black Futures bring together the calm and the chaos, delivering an ingenious sound clash of distorted rock energy and dance-inducing electronics that form the back bone of this incendiary debut.
Ahead of release, the duo caused mayhem and mystery around the globe, from kidnapping music industry executives to performing in an abandoned Russian Cold War bunker in Berlin, erecting a monolithic logo in the middle of a hippy commune in Joshua Tree as well as filming amid tropical heat in the metropolis of Tokyo.
Never Not Nothing is a fearless album which features a string of breakthrough hits that have garnered support from the likes of Radio 1 (Annie Mac, Daniel P Carter, Phil Taggart), 6 Music (Steve Lamacq) and Radio X.
It includes the recently shared ‘Body & Soul’, which followed the band’s previous releases ‘Tunnel Vision’ (an unrelenting Krautrock-inspired explosion), ‘Love’ (a gritty slab of industrial rave), ‘Karma Ya Dig!?’ (a psychedelic anthem of solidarity), ‘Riches’ (think NIN-meets-MGMT), ‘Trance’ (a euphoric-rock bliss-blast) and the corroded Kasabian garage-glam of ‘Me.TV’ which featuring a call-to-arms monologue from Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie.
Live Black Futures’ anarchic shows have seen them acclaimed as turbulent force on the gigging circuit following a string of incredible performances supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes as well as a number of mind-blowing festival appearances at All Points East, Camden Rocks, Download Festival and Glastonbury.
They are now set to continue their breakthrough year supporting Black Peaks across the UK throughout October.
“I saw Drake at the O2 on Monday (meh) and Black Futures at the Lexington on Tuesday, who I think, genuinely, could do for British rock music what Daft Punk did for French EDM in the Nineties…. but you really need to see their live show to get the full experience.” – Independent
