‘THE HURT’ PRESS RELEASE:
The Blackwater Fever release ‘The Hurt’ ahead of their 6th album
From the musically eclectic minds of Brisbane’s alt-rock trio The Blackwater Fever, comes their new single ‘The Hurt’. A raw bleeding heart, modern blues ballad adorned with lush strings and high fidelity production.
This impassioned and electrifying single, treats fans to another exciting preview to TBWF’s 6th studio album ‘Temptator’, set for release this October.
“DARK RIVER OF VITRIOLIC ROCK ’N’ ROLL” – Time Off
A thunderous, tortured electric guitar rips through the room. An organ spins a heavy swirl, like some wicked preacher summoning his devilish church. The rhythmic stomp of an unrelenting drum kit rattles you down to the bone marrow, and if you close your eyes… you can almost smell the swamp and feel the moonlight on your face. It’s hard to believe such an atmospheric, blues-heavy storm could come from these 3 unassuming dudes. Breaking your heart one minute with a harrowing growl, only to pick you up with an irresistible rocker the next, this Brisbane based blues-rock trio are a live experience not to be missed.
