From BLACK PEAKS front man Will Gardner on the new single ‘Electric Fires’:
‘Electric Fires was one of the first songs we wrote for All That Divides, and 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 straight-forward. 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.’

The band have already released the singles ‘Home’ and ‘Can’t Sleep’, and the later was a Radio 1 Rock Show Rockest Record and Huw Stevens Single Of The Week in April, and is the opening track on ‘All That Divides’. Full album track-listing below:

Will Gardner on ‘All That Divides’ – “Lyrically at least, this album represents the fear of a future where freedom is restricted. Over the last two years, we as a band have been incredibly lucky to have been able to travel accross Europe and play our music. The fact this happened to take place during a period where various political changes, at home and abroad, made us focus a lot about the freedom and right to travel. We have seen people, families, relationships and countries divided by conflict and political upheaval, and our reaction to this is a core lyrical theme running through the album.”

‘All That Divides’ is the follow up to the 2016 debut album ‘Statues’, which was universally acclaimed, saw the band play-listed on Radio 1 with ‘Saviour’ and tour across Europe with the likes of Architects, Mastodon, System of a Down, Prophets of Rage and Dillinger Escape Plan
