For full touring details, please see FLORENCE BLACK’s official website.
For the uninitiated, Merthyr Tydfil’s FLORENCE BLACK are a young band of self-taught, childhood friends: lead vocalist/guitarist Tristan Thomas, bassist/backing vocalist Jordan Evans, and drummer/backing vocalist Perry Davies. The group have released three EPs to date, with early single ‘Bird On A Chain’ clinching #1 in the UK iTunes rock chart and amassing over 2.1 million streams to date, and their belting cover of Budgie’s ‘Breadfan’ landing the band their first Classic Rock Track Of The Week accolade.
Their recently released debut album, ‘Weight Of The World‘, has only further cemented their growing reputation as one of the hottest bands in the new wave of classic rock. The diverse record includes pile-driving rocker ‘Can You Feel It?‘ and the smash hit summery single ‘Sun & Moon‘, promptly a mainstay on Planet Rock Radio. On release, the track shot straight to #3 in the UK iTunes rock chart and once again, captured Classic Rock’s fan-voted Track Of The Week – a plaudit the band have now won three times.
“An avalanche of stomping riffs and infectious choruses… there’s plenty of sparkle and potential here,” wrote Metal Hammer, about the debut LP. Kerrang! enthused, “This is a set of songs capable of putting them on the radars of old-school rockers around the world… a perfect soundtrack to swing hips and throw fists now that our favourite spit-and-sawdust dive bars are opening back up.””This blend of blues and hard rock with inflections of metal leaves a sweet aftertaste,” commented Distorted Sound, continuing “Weight Of The World is a stunning debut from a band who should be on everyone’s radars.” Powerplay and Welsh title Buzz both awarded it full marks, with Powerplay declaring, “This is thrilling stuff – hard hitting, high energy, and bursting at the seams with great hooks. Florence Black have delivered an absolute belter” and Buzz concluding, “a stunningly good debut album.”
