They've also joined a new label, so... big day.

Black Peaks have released a new song, 'Can't Sleep'.

"The song was written in response to a very difficult time for the band and myself personally," commented frontman Will Gardner.

"Since writing 'Statues', our political environment has seen a big shift, and some extremely xenophobic and racist comments and actions have been aired in the media, at whom a lot of the anger and fire in these lyrics is directed. Whatever your view is politically, this song deals anxiety, paranoia and insomnia, all stemming from being swept along with a decision you do not agree with."

It's their debut release on their new label, Rise Records - as well as their first with Dave Larkin on bass.

They've been recording new music with producer Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters), for an album to appear at some point.

"We haven't wasted any time since I joined the band - we were straight into writing and finishing off ideas for this album and it all came together so naturally," said Dave.

"Getting into the studio with Ade was definitely the right decision for all of us - he has an incredible high-energy approach to producing, and was just as hyped on everything as we were. We're all so proud of these songs - the end result is massive."

Oh, and they've also joined Marmozets' upcoming UK tour! The dates they'll be playing are:

MAY

04 - NORWICH Waterfront
07 - EXETER Lemon Grove
09 - NORTHAMPTON Roadmender
10 - COVENTRY Kasbah
11 - OXFORD Academy
