Hailing from Merthyr Tydfil in the valleys of South Wales, Florence Black are a trio of
childhood friends who have grown up together into a tight, raucous band of brothers. Tristan (19), Fozzi (20) and Perry (18) play with an intensity and grit that has captured the hearts and souls of their ever growing fan-base including rock royalty, Corey Taylor and Brian Johnson. It’s also this ever loyal fan-base that voted Florence Black as “The band you would most like to see at Camden Rocks”, winning a prize slot at the festival in June. Other noteworthy accolades includes being named in 2015 by Pledge Music and Help Musicians UK as one of their emerging talents.
Florence Black’s new AA single was produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet for my Valentine, Funeral For A Friend, Kids In Glass Houses). ‘Fiesta’ captures an identifiable old school, hard-hitting style which highlights their songwriting talents and instant hum-ability. ‘Same Again’ is the darker of the two tracks, reflecting the brutality of everyday life where numbness is the only choice. Both songs showcasing the taught and addictive sound that has earnt Florence Black plaudits aplenty with Slipknot/Stonesour’s frontman Corey Taylor commenting on‘Same Again’, saying, “That’s a little bit o’ BAD ASS! Like The band Injected meets Sevendust, really good!” Florence Black funded their debut self titled EP via a Pledge Music campaign which was endorsed by the great Brian Johnson of AC/DC who has taken an active interest in the band’s progress. Florence Black have also been featured on Secret Sessions where they have been cited as a “band to watch out for”.
