Track of the Day: BlackWaters - ‘Down'

BLACKWATERS launch into 2017 with a ripe slice of high-octane indie in the shape of new single: ‘Down’. The latest release from these tempestuous teen upstarts arrives at the peak of their first nationwide live dates – a co-headline tour with like-minded Blackpool rockers Strange Bones.

Swiftly following their Radio1 and Radio X hailed debut outing, anti-anthem ‘So Far Out’; the Surrey-based hell raisers released ‘Down’ on 3rd of February 2017 via the Scrubs record label.

Oozing with passion, aggression and an angst-ridden unwillingness to compromise, ‘Down’ finds the outspoken four-piece in fiery form as they deliver this lung-busting clarion call against the powers that be. Now preparing to tear up stages across the nation, the Surrey four piece will put in sets at 15 towns and cities, kicking off in Coventry on the 23rd of January and pursuing an intense schedule that will conclude in Stoke On Trent on 11th of February. See full dates and details as follows:


February 3rd – Ferret, Preston

February 4th – Bootleg Social, Blackpool

February 5th – The Fulford Arms, York

February 7th – The Polar Bear, Hull

February 8th – Think Tank, Newcastle

February 9th – Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh

February 10th – The Leadmill, Sheffield

February 11th – The Sugarmill, Stoke on Trent

BlackWaters are four immense – loud – eighteen-year-old indie thrashers from the UK.Having scored fans and co-collaborators in the likes of Carl Barât (The Libertines), Spike Stent and sometime Prodigy co-writer Olly Burden, the four-piecehave evidently been making the right kind of racket.

Performing on the BBC Introducing Stage at Leeds Festival & supporting the likes of SWMRS & DMAs last year, the band look to make 2017 theirs as they release new single ‘Down’ and embark on a nationwide co-headline tour with Strange Bones.
