BLACK PEAKS released their second album, ALL THAT DIVIDES, in October last year to rave reviews across the board. NME awarded the album 5/5 and said, “With All That Divides, the band delivers an album that’s confident, stylistically cohesive, and points towards their ascending star in the future”; whilst UPSET MAGAZINE also gave the album 5/5 and stated, “Black Peaks bellow unity from the rooftops. It’s not a political record but it does dish out the blame. Rather than dwelling in the mire, though, Black Peaks want hope. They need it. A call to arms entwined, it’s a record of struggle and resistance. It doesn’t have the answers but it knows they’re out there and it wants us to find them together.” Others like KERRANG! (4/5) DORK (5/5) METAL HAMMER (8/10) PLANET ROCK (4/5) RHYTHM (4/5) DISCOVERED (10/10) and THE SKINNY (4/5) backed up the praise, with THE INDEPENDENT stating, “Their sublime second album is massive in every sense of the word; this feels like a real achievement.
