‘Come On In’ was recorded with producer Ben Stancombe at Base Studios in Stourbridge and is rousing, blues fueled garage-rock at it’s very best. Released digitally via all the major outlets, the track is the first indication of what to expect from their debut album; ‘The Undiscovered Colour’ which is set for release on the 7th of July 2017.
The Black Rattles were formed nearly two years ago when Rich Monk (vocals / guitar) met southern Irish native Konrad Sheane (drums) online whilst bonding over a mutual passion and desire to write and perform rock n’ roll. Messages were sent back and forth and Konrad flew to the UK where the duo immediately clicked during a week of intense rehearsals, which sowed the seeds for The Black Rattles.
Re-locating to Worcester City in Worcestershire, where the band are currently based, they enlisted the help of producer and close friend Ben Stancombe and began writing and recording the songs that will appear on aforementioned long player ‘The Undiscovered Colour’.
Following in the footsteps of other like-minded two-piece bands; The White Stripes, Two Gallants and The Black Keys they have a wide spectrum of influences ranging from The Doors to Hank Williams to Pink Floyd to hip hop artist Yelawolf. Inspired by of all of those influences, with Monk’s hard hitting addictive rock n’ roll riffs and Sheane following in pursuit with booming Bonham like drums, they’ve managed to create and master a truly innovative sound that’s unlike anyone else around right now.
The Black Rattles are set to debut their live sound at a special headline show to launch the single on the 22nd June at the Fire Fly bar, Worcester. More dates will be announced to coincide with the album release.
