Weathered Hands have joined IATDE Records, with an aim to release the bands 3rd EP ‘Of All The People That I’ve Left, Each One Has Died Of Loneliness’ on 7” and digitally on 24th June followed up in early 2014 by their debut album.
Of All The People That I’ve Left…’ will be available on the 24th June, on 7” (limited to 500 – 100 Clear Vinyl / 400 Black Vinyl) artwork supplied by Will Blood (we’ve seen advance sketches and it will look amazing), the release will also be available digitally on the same date.
Black Shapes surfaced from the dark depths of the London hardcore scene back in 2011. After releasing a self titled 4 track EP, line-up changes were made and Gareth Evans (November Coming Fire on vocals) and Mike Ager (Jairus on bass) join the band, this turned out to be the catalyst Black Shapes need.
Soon after in June 2012 the band released “Let Valhalla Burn” (the first release with the now established line-up which also includes original members Richard Wooding on Drums and Goldthorpe on Guitar) a one track single/video to high acclaim.
It was this EP and In At The Deep End Records former connection with Black Shapes frontman (November Coming Fire & Tortuga), that made IATDE decide they could no longer sit on the side lines and monitor Black Shapes progression, it was time to back the band so in April 2013 Black Shapes joined respected independent label IATDE Records .
Black Shapes will be back in the Studio with Steve Sears in April 2013 to record their debut album that will sees the band become a much heavier beast, with Gareth now also adding 2nd guitar and the rest of the band adding vocals. If the demos for the album are anything to go by Black Shapes will be delivering one the most exciting records from the UK for a decade.
Black Shapes debut album is due late July/ Early Aug 2013
