Black Peaks have shared a new track called Electric Fires.

It’s an ambitious, textured rock song and the latest glimpse of what lurks inside the band’s second LP, 'All That Divides', which is out on October 5 through Rise Records/BMG.

It will be accompanied with shows in Belfast, Dublin, Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Sheffield and Worthing following their summer festival plans.

“Electric Fires was one of the first songs we wrote for ‘All That Divides’,” frontman Will Gardner said. “And [it]was one that had a few live outings towards the end of the ‘Statues tour. The song in many ways is one of our most straightforward.

“Lyrically the song is a bit of a sarcastic comment on the beliefs of certain conspiracy theorists, Flat-Earthers etc. Essentially we just had fun with that idea, and wrote a song about how our Alien forefathers came here from Mars at the dawn of civilisation to build the pyramids, which, of course, 100% totally happened. Stay woke, kids.”

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
