From BLACK PEAKS front man Will Gardner on the new single ‘Home’ – “We were writing the song against the backdrop of a lot of uncertainty with regards to personal and political identity. We were out on tour in Mainland Europe in mid-2016, during a period where we as British Citizens felt like decisions being made on behalf of our ‘Home’ did not represent us. There is a uneasy feeling of severance that happens when you are not physically at home during a time of transformation. Our feelings of disconnection and division from our country and it’s people, coupled with tour-fatigue and cabin fever, made for some of the most difficult times we have experienced, as a band, as friends, and as people.”

The band have already released the single ‘Can’t Sleep’ which was a Radio 1 Rockest Record and Huw Stevens Single Of The Week in April, and is the opening track on ‘All That Divides’. Full album track-listing below:

Will Gardner on ‘All That Divides’ – “Lyrically at least, this album represents the fear of a future where freedom is restricted. Over the last two years, we as a band have been incredibly lucky to have been able to travel accross Europe and play our music. The fact this happened to take place during a period where various political changes, at home and abroad, made us focus a lot about the freedom and right to travel. We have seen people, families, relationships and countries divided by conflict and political upheaval, and our reaction to this is a core lyrical theme running through the album.”

‘All That Divides’ is the follow up to the 2016 debut album ‘Statues’, which was universally acclaimed, saw the band play-listed on Radio 1 with ‘Saviour’ and tour accross Europe with the likes of Architects, Mastodon, System of a Down, Prophets of Rage and Dillinger Escape Plan.
