BLACK COAST UNLEASH
Stoke-On-Trent’s nu-metal bright lights Black Coast have revealed the video for new single ‘Stranger’s Skin’, the fourth track to be released ahead of their hotly anticipated debut album titled Outworld, set for release 19 Nov via Blood Blast Distribution. Listen at https://backl.ink/144990518
Stranger’s Skin revels in it’s melancholic sensibilities, with proud references to Deftones, Alice in Chains bookended no-nonsense fist-pumping guitar work. Effortlessly twisting familiar components into new shapes and the metallic hardcore sound at the band’s core. The song is lyrically introspective, with vocalist Charlie Hewitt opening up about issues with self-esteem and lacking compassion for one’s self.
Charlie Hewitt explains: “Stanger’s Skin is about your perceived image. Whether that be aesthetically or how you think you come across to other people, and how you feel about that image. Feeling like you’re someone else ‘pretending to be okay with pretending’. Sometimes you can’t help it, or have to do it. Stuck in a stranger’s skin.”
With their last tour shelved mid-way due to covid and staring into a void of uncertainty, they entered the studio. New music gave means for reflection and writing their debut album Outworld proved to be a healing process. Outworld unifies sounds teased across singles ‘Ache’, ‘Paradise’, ‘Vodka Smile’with some genuine off the wall surprises along the way. Thematically it’s a candid exploration of vocalist Charlie Hewitt’s struggles which ultimately led him to a path of sobriety.
Things have gone from strength to strength with the band recently breaking on to UK music television as well as garnering huge support at radio and press. With a new partnership with Nuclear Blast’s Blood Blast Distribution, ‘Outworld’ is a record destined to take Black Coast to the next level.
Previous singles Paradise & Vodka Smile saw editorial support from Apple, Deezer, Spotify, Amazon as well as Kerrang! Radio, K! Magazine, Rock Sound and many more. Add to that international support from Triple J Radio (Australia), German Radio Fritz, Radio Bremen, UniFM and Raute FM and Australian zines BLUNT, Wall Of Sound, Hysteria, HEAVY Mag and more.
