Black Peaks Have Broken Up

UK four piece Black Peaks have regrettably announced they’ve called it a day and ended the band.

They shared the news in a statement published via their social channels, citing that they “have reached a point where we don’t feel we can continue in a way that is healthy for us.”

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.
