You can read the full statement below.
“The time has come to bring Black Peaks to its close. Over the past 4 years, we have dealt with some incredibly hard and demanding situations which we have done our absolute best to work through. Unfortunately, we have reached a point where we don’t feel we can continue in a way that is healthy for us.
To you, our fans, friends, and family. Thank you for being the greatest support network we could’ve ever hoped for. We have achieved things that we never thought would be possible when we began this journey. So, for supporting our vision, we owe you our utmost gratitude.
A special thank you to our team, who we believe to be some of the best in business. It has been our pleasure to learn from and grow with these wonderful humans over the last 10 years and we couldn’t have done it without them.
All our love, Joe, Liam, Will & Dave.”
Black Peaks formed in 2012 initially under the name of Shrine and then changed their name after the release of their debut EP, ‘Closer To The Sun’ in 2014.
They then went on to release two full length records, ‘Statues’ (2016) and ‘All that Divides’ (2018) where they performed a livestream which released as a live record, ‘Live At The Brighton Centre’ earlier in 2021.
Black Peaks have announced their largest ever UK tour as part of their 22 date UK and EU trek over October and November later this year.
The band have said: “This tour truly is a step up for us as a band, and we’re genuinely so excited about every aspect of what we have planned. These are some legendary venues, some amazing support bands, and we also have some tricks up our sleeve too….We’ve just had some truly life-affirming festival shows for us as a band, and right now we’re hungry for more! See you all in October!”
Just because it’s December doesn’t mean dark days are in order in the world of music.
Progressive rock band Black Peaks have announced that the band has parted ways with their bassist, Andrew Gosden. As a founding member, he saw them as their original name; Shrine before the band changed their name to Black Peaks in 2014.
The band has already recruited a new bassist to their ranks, Dave Larkin who will be moving into the position full time.
