Recently, Echo Black released their newest single and music video for “Dawn” off their upcoming album of the same title. The band teamed up with Walter Dicristina and Axel Otero to record the song and recruited Chris Newhard (Sia, Jessie J, Train) to bring the track to life. After premiering their last video for “Chemicals” which was produced by Matt Squire (One Direction, Kesha, Ariana Grande) as well as Andros Rodriguez (Shakira, Justin Timberlake) and also directed by Chris Newhard on Billboard, the band met and exceeded their goal on Indiegogo raising over $13,000 to fund their new release. Dawn is set to drop on Friday, October 13th. Watch “Dawn” exclusively on AXS, here:
All of Echo Black’s makeup is sponsored by MAC Cosmetics. Danny Blu was also featured in Huffington Post Queer Voices along with a B-side track dedicated to his boyfriend (founder of Material Memorie). The band may seem like they came out of thin air but have been working tirelessly since they rose to fame after launching their breakout track “Perfect” featuring Telle Smith from The Word Alive. “Perfect” initially premiered on Alternative Press and the band later unveiled the official video on Fuse.New York City-based pop/rock foursome Echo Black is comprised of members whose musical inspirations range from basement punk to Frank Sinatra, and everything in between. The boys credit their unique, catchy, pop-flavored sound to their writing process; echoing one idea off another and, bouncing components around until the song begins to speak to them. Danny Blu (vocalist) and Billy Long (drums, keys) have roots that go back as far as the high school marching band. They picked up Felix Skiver (guitar, vocals) and Rob Gnarly (bass, vocals) along the way and have been inseparable since. As if their blood-pumping music wasn’t enough, their live show is something you have to see to understand. Nothing short of an electrical storm of energy, Echo Black is not an act to be missed.
Moonfall, a three piece alternative pop/rock band hailing from New York City, is on a journey to impact the world. Dynamic and texturally creative, they aspire to turn stages everywhere into their proving grounds through their high energy delivery of memorable songs. Known for their versatile musicianship and their experimentation with genres since their inception, they quickly honed in on what would become their unique approach to composing. By amalgamating different musical styles with meaningful lyrics and unforgettable melodies, Moonfall has created a profound and enduring connection with their audience and listeners. Formed in 2015, Moonfall released their debut EP Refraction, but truly begun their breakthrough with their single “Devon”, which generated a frenzy of rave reviews from dedicated fans, press outlets, and new listeners alike, all ready to embrace what Moonfall has to offer next. With performances characterized by their relentless intensity on stage, it is as present in their determination to let their voice be heard and felt on an ever grander scale. Their brand of infectious modern rock has quickly seeped into the minds of many, and the trio’s lively stage presence has left them wanting more. The band’s sophomore EP Empty Cage will be released in 2017 and their first video off the album “Lost” will be released this month.For updates on Echo Black, please visit the websites at the close of this post.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve only caught the band a couple of times in concert but can admit that they are something to see for sure. Very “Visual Kei” IMHO and their sound is rather unique as well. I’d like to give them a longer go as far as concert reporting goes but I know my dance card is full for this regional event but don’t let that stop you from coming out to support something new. If you’ve followed them for any amount of time please let us know down in the comments about what we are in store for. You know where to do it. See you next time.
