The Black Heart Rebellion
New album out October


Ten years down the road and Belgian band, The Black Heart Rebellion (T.B.H.R.) are still evolving. Tribal influences are slowly permeating an irreversible change in T.B.H.R. who invite their audience to listen closely to their third studio album titled, People when you see the smoke, do not think it is fields they’re burning.

Every recording is an exercise that shares the research for what might be their next sound.  The new album is as much a snapshot of the present, as a prediction for the future of the band.  Where Har Nevo (2013) promised a golden land, the path of its successor is not without trial.  Har Nevo revealed a crossroad of possible outcomes, and in little more than a year T.B.H.R. found an answer.  New directions have found their way into their music, telling us that the search may never be over.

Watch the video for “Near To Fire For Bricks’ on Echoes and Dust

The video for ‘Near To Fire For Bricks’ will fix your eyes on the creeping portrait of a timeless space. Once inside, an hour may take a lifetime and you notice gravity has failed, twisting and turning seemingly at random. The viewer is absorbed in a story detached from time and space. Unhurried it compels, with enough time for all the detail to soak in. And it does. The video leaves you with a heavy feeling on your chest and a craving to return to the rhythmic pulse of the song. The first single from The Black Heart Rebellion’s new album is an exercise in desolation and restraint and both the video from Maanlander and the soothing voices of Pieter Uyttenhove and Annelies Vandinter accentuate those feelings better than the band dared to hope for.

People, when you see the smoke, do not think it is fields they’re burning was recorded and mixed by Koen Gisen and mastered by Frederik Dejongh (Jerboa).  It will be released 23rd October on 9000 Records.
