    After releasing their debut self titled album in 2009, the band toured the country and also did a tour of the UK and France. On the back of the album release in the UK, in 2010 Blackchords showcased at The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City, touring in the UK for a few months before coming back to Australia to open for POWDERFINGER at the Myer Music Bowl on their last ever show in Melbourne. 2011 was spent writing and recording demo’s working towards album number two and we were lucky enough to attract the interest of Frames guitarist/ Producer David Odlum who flew to Melbourne from France to produce the album. David brought with him years of experience and some amazing ideas and what has come out of the recording sessions is a completely new sounding band, which is great!! And to add to the story David just won a Grammy recently for his work on world music act Tinariwen, featuring members of TV On The Radio. Mixing on the album was done at Black Box Studios in France and we are happy to now have the first double A sided single ‘Dance’ and ‘As The Night Falls’ ready to be released
