Black Peaks have unleashed a video for their new single, 'King'

Black Peaks have unleashed a video for their new single, 'King'.

The track - which debuted earlier this week - marks the band's first new material since 2018 album 'All That Divides', and it arrives ahead of their October headline tour, which will see them perform throughout the UK and Europe.

Vocalist Will Gardner says of the new song: “We had been working on a load of new song ideas, and this particular piece of music (which became 'King') was just a track that seemed to smoothly be completed really early on, musically at least if not vocally. Unfortunately this time coincided with myself getting very ill, making it pretty much impossible to do anything at all, let alone write, practice, record and sing, so the track stayed unflinished for ages."

"However, we had a really really amazing moment in July when everything just came together. I had this night when I couldn't sleep and the chorus melody was just going round and round my head. I sat at my desk in the morning and the whole song just came out in one go, in like 2 hours of writing!"

"I called Joe (Gosney, guitarist) and he drove over immediately, excited and a bit bewildered that I was so hyped on apparently finishing the song, I gathered enough strength to sing it through and record it, and it was done! To have been able to create a piece of music in such a difficult time has been one of the most challenging but rewarding things I've ever done and I'm so proud of what we as a band have made."
