The Black Fields’ songs and lyrics dwell in the dark and depraved worlds of the wild west, latino prostitutes, lovelorn lost artists, and bare-knuckle ﬁghters, demanding comparisons to Tom Waits at his most twisted and Nick Cave at his most snarling and, at times, mournful and melancholic.
2013 is due to be an exciting year for The Black Fields with the recent release of their new Tim Larcombe-produced record, followed by a string of tour dates across the UK’s major cities. It may be summer, but The Black Fields’ live performances are made for anything but a quiet recline in the sunshine.
Their shows are visceral, chaotic and debaucherous, with each multi-talented guitar-playing member taking turns to be front man. Expect sticky ﬂoors, a sweaty party atmosphere and onstage energy reminiscent of The Rolling Stones’ swagger and passion
The Black Fields released their debut EP on 17th December 2011 and went on to play a number of sold out shows in London and the south east as well as shows around
the UK and Madrid. This was alongside a busy summer of festival appearances at Sunrise Celebration Festival,
Playgroup Festival and Over the Moon festival to name but a few.
The Black Fields also featured on the Soundtrack to award winning feature film ‘City of Dreamers’ (a Jumpstart
Productions film directed by Jamie Patterson featuring Ross and Diego alongside Ellen Cosgrove and a cameo from
Norman Cook) with the soundtrack released by Skint Records in 2012.
