Is this the hardest working heavy rock/metal band from North England?
Updated: Feb 25
Hailing from Bradford (West Yorkshire) resides Black Falcon. A Heavy Rock band with an infusion and the right dose of metal elements. One can't simply put a finger on what genre Black Falcon are, but there are heavy influences anywhere from Black Sabbath and Mastodon to Billy Talent. The troopers from Black Falcon began their career in 2015, although the lineup has changed throughout that time - the band are not stopping anytime soon with their current formula...
Following on from their highly acclaimed debut EP, Living in Me, released September 2016, the band signed to MSH Music Group, and went on to release the follow-up single “Devils Chase Him,” as well as a video to the debut EP’s title track.

Moving forward with the Devils Chase Him single, there were phenomenal reaches with these tracks. Black Falcon were given the oppurtunity to play alongside L.A. Guns & the ever popular monsters of Rock 'Puddle Of Mudd'. The band played a sold out show beside them in their home city of Bradford.
With these achievements putting the band on the map, they were also reviewed by musical comedy legend Bill Bailey, as he personally expressed his love for Black Falcon after experiencing them at full force by saying “Black Falcon, may your wings soar upon the power of rock. - Bill Bailey.

Here are just a few words taken from multiple reviews of the album.
"Like a pedigree Rottweiler this promising debut is strong, rooted in tradition but with the potential to bite!" - GIGsoup music
"Turn Around… features almost an hour of tight tracks, all designed to have you banging your head at one velocity or another." - The Moshville times
"The musicians all know what they’re doing and the delicate balance of groove and melody was handled well" - Mega depth
"Vocally 'Ayres' could almost at times be a dead ringer for Paul Stanley of KISS. That’s not a bad thing. Lyrically, the band tackles much of the human condition in a very sincere heartfelt manner." - The Metal Temple
From Tattoo ink and Drama Theatre to the stage
