River Black are now streaming “Boat,” another new track off their forthcoming self-titled album. The song is full of progressive aggression and one of the highlights on the album. The new album was recorded at Trax East Studio in New Jersey with producer Eric Rachel (Skidrow, Municipal Waste, God Forbid) and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side (Converge, Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan).
Regarding the track, vocalist Mike Olender commented; “Boat’ addresses the challenge that humanity faces to do the right thing for the right reasons. We all aspire to be better people than we are – and few people genuine think that they are a bad person because we all have our ways of justifying our feelings and our behaviors to ourselves. Our paths are ultimately dictated by the fragility of the human spirit and our instinct to survive. Fate has a way of setting the stage for where we will go and who we are. Simply put, there’s little use escaping human nature. Lyrically, this song is a bridge between where Burnt by the Sun dissolved and this new project began.”
