It seems like Brighton progressive rockers Black Peaks have some good news and bad news for us before they wrap up 2017. The good news is that the band are currently hard at work in the studio, recording album number two and follow-up to last year’s seminal debut, ‘Statues’.
The bad news? They’ve also confirmed they’ve parted ways with their bassist, Andrew Gosden. As a founding member of the band, Gosden (also known simply as Goz) has been with the band since their inception and their original name of Shrine. They renamed themselves to Black Peaks in 2014 following vocalist Will Gardner joining the line-up.
However, the band have already recruited a replacement into their ranks in Dave Larkin, who will be taking up bass duties full-time moving forward.
You can find the band’s announcement regarding this posted below.
WE ARE CURRENTLY RECORDING OUR SECOND ALBUM AND IT’S SOUNDING ABSOLUTELY MONSTROUS!!
With that we have some news, Goz has amicably decided to step down from bass duties in the band, we will always love him and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
We now welcome Dave Larkin onto the Black Peaks freight train and we can’t wait for you to meet him on the road next year.
2018… you best be ready.
ALBUM TWO PEOPLE!!”
More news surrounding the band’s forthcoming sophomore studio album, touring plans, and everything else will be confirmed as and when it develops.
