BLACK SKIES, Chapel Hill, NC power trio has been tuning down and turning up since late 2005, constantly evolving their aural offerings of psychedelic sludge. With a combination of the foreboding heaviness of blues based proto-metal, the spry attitude and approach of punk, and the dynamics of progressive rock, their songs often project a dark & urgent energy.
Black Skies releases include:
Black Skies EP, self-released, Aug 2007
Aqua Dogs b/w Family Man 7″, Sirena Discos, Spring 2008
Hexagon CD EP, self-released, May 2008
Hexagon 12″, I’m Better Than Everyone Records, May 2009
Black Skies Live, Sirena Discos, 2010
On The Wings Of Time CD LP, self-released, Nov 2011
The band is currently working on a new full length record with release plans to be announced.
With 3 full U.S. tours under their belts, 20+ regional tours through the Southeast, Northeast, and Midwest, dates in Canada, and official spots at SXSW (2009) & Hopscotch (2012), Black Skies remains an active force in the heavy music scene of their region & beyond.
