Band on Band: Castle Black
Castle Black is a Brooklyn-based rock trio, bringing a powerful and thunderous sound, full of hard-hitting jams, never sacrificing the hook. Described as drawing from punk, post-punk, grunge, alternative and new wave, Castle Black refuses to be pinned down to a genre. The sonic experience is unique, with each song having lyrical purpose, telling a different part of the master picture. Aggressive female vocals, roaring drums, canny bass and guitar-forward jams collide, staying in your head for days on end.
The trio released their first EP, Find You There, in August 2015, with a follow-up single, Dark Light: A Plague Revisited, released in May 2016. Their second EP, Losing Forever, as well as their video for Dark Light, was released October 2016. They will be releasing a lathe record single in April 2017, to be followed by a full EP later that summer. Castle Black plays regularly in New York City and New Jersey, including having played both Northside Festival and the Jersey Shore Festival in 2016. The band has toured further, including stops in Washington DC, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. In 2017, they will reach Austin, TX during SXSW for the Rocker Stalker showcase. Their songs have been played on both domestic and international radio, including Lionheart Radio, Radio Tatras, Kane FM, Radio Free Brooklyn, Banks Radio Australia, Vulcan Sound Radio, Rock Radio UK, Riviera FM, EGH Radio, RelaxFreeRadio and many more.
On Saturday, April 8th, they will play in Somerville, MA at PA’s Lounge, at 10:30 pm. Also on the bill are Elsewhere, Back Seat Redemption, Above the Din and Dragn Bangrs. $10.00 at the door. Check out the event page HERE!
