With accolades and praise from industry veterans the likes of Ben Wells (Black Stone Cherry), Benji Webbe (Skindred), Corey Taylor (Slipknot), and JD DeServio (Black Label Society), suffice it to say that the hype surrounding Welsh rockers Florence Black is big! Now, the group has confirmed that their debut album, Weight of The World, will drop on September 17th.
The ten-track offering was recorded in Wales at Long Wave Recording Studio with producer Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Motorhead, Sylosis, Holding Absence). Pre-orders are available here including special signed CD/vinyl and t-shirt bundles.
Commenting on the news, lead single Tristan Thomas shares, “‘Weight Of The World’ is the culmination of our time as Florence Black. It’s a mixture of songs written at our very beginning and brand new material just created, blended together and shaped into one. The pressure and anticipation of releasing our debut album, feels like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders, especially with waiting what has felt like since the beginning of time to get it recorded and released. We wanted that reflected in the title and the artwork. Not to mention, with Romesh Dodangoda’s production, the sound is as heavy as Planet Earth too!”
