BLESSED BLACK Announce 'Seasons: Vol. 1' EP

Heavy doom quartet BLESSED BLACK are gearing up to unleash a new EP on July 7, 2023. Entitled Seasons: Vol. 1, this 3 song offering is the first of a series of EPs planned for 2023 and 2024 that mark a new chapter in the band's career. Seasons: Vol. 1 features the debut of new guitarist Jake Stone, and finds the band exploring themes of existentialism, grief, healing, and rediscovery.

Doomy riffs, lashings of distortion and 70's-esque organ are the offering from BLESSED BLACK. Along with the heavy, Seasons: Vol. 1 delivers deeply personal and emotional narratives across the tracks. The opening track “Hellbender” is based on a conversation vocalist/guitarist Joshua Murphy had with his father who was batting cancer. Stating “It focuses on how temporary life can be, and how easy it is to lose sight of what’s actually important in life.” The second track “Obsidian” explores the process of finding yourself again after experiencing tragedy, loss, and grief. The EP concludes with “Unable”, which is about how hard it is to watch friends and loved ones lose themselves to addiction.
