BLACK TREE VULTURES DROP NEW HARD HITTING VIDEO 'RUN BACK TO THE DARK'
Brit hard rockers BLACK TREE VULTURES drop brand new video 'RUN BACK TO THE DARK'! This is the second single release following their September release 'The Unforeseen' from their new EP 'III' which is set for release, February 12th 2021.
This track is emotionally hard hitting, not just lyrically but also due to the circumstances that inspired its inception. It takes a huge amount of bravery to discuss your mental health and openly show your underbelly. This is exactly what has been done through this single and its message will resonate with all of its listeners. The single boasts punchy riffs, crushing grooves, huge hooks and is the second installment of three singles from their upcoming EP 'III' - which will be released early next year. This track is emotionally hard hitting, not just lyrically but also due to the circumstances that inspired its inception.
Having worked on their previous release with Grammy nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda, Black Tree Vultures wanted to expand on their sound and took the new EP to Spain to work along side producer Will Maya (The Answer) in Los Rosales Studios.
Whilst 2020 has been a write off for some, BTV have been proactive behind the scenes signing with booking agents, Roulette Media and have already been confirmed for Teddy Rocks festival, HRH Ibiza, Love Rocks and Lindos Rocks in Greece. They have also signed with Iron Road talent management and performed on the Iron Road live @ your social bubble event which was streamed on July 18th and was extremely successful. BTV have gone from strength to strength, gaining momentum and fans worldwide!
"*Ched played this melodic baseline at practice one day and stopped me in my tracks, “What's that!?” I said. “Oh just something I had knocking around”. Despite the rest of the band thinking it wasn’t very “us” I persisted and this song developed. It was the end section that made the others realise we had a good thing here.*
Easily the hardest song I have ever had to write lyrically. This is the first time that we have taken a slower route with our songs and this allowed me to get my feelings down on paper more freely. This song is about my bi-polar diagnosis. With me talking to both versions of myself that I hate so much. This song is written about me, however with the idea that anyone can refer to it who may be going through something similar and can relate. The fact that I hate I’m like this, but I am going to do everything in my power to push it away and beat this illness." - Celyn

Formed in early 2017 by Jonno Smyth (Drums) and Aaron ‘Ham’ Hammersley (Guitar), Black Tree Vultures set out to combine their classic metal influences with a modern edge, to play to an audience ranging from seasoned metal veterans to new rock lovers. After recruiting Celyn Beynon (Vocals) to front the band, writing and recording began on their debut EP “Sanity Isn’t Perfect”. This was released on BTV records via plastic head media in February 2018.
The band crafted a strong live set and immediately took to the road, playing towns such as Oxford, Birmingham, Southampton & Colchester. Receiving great receptions wherever they went the band landed their first main support slot for Snakecharmer a few weeks before their debut E.P was released. Continuing to play live around the UK, Black Tree Vultures have supported the likes of Diablo Blvd, Bigfoot, and Ryders Creed. The band soon found themselves in Europe to play live in Holland, Germany and Belgium. This included a Headline spot at the Dutch festival “Wolluk-Stock”.
Thanks to the support of the BTV fans, the band were voted to play at a Hard Rock Hell battle of the bands in August 2018 turning heads and securing more gigs for the future. Here they met ‘Ched’ Cheeseman who, after standing in on Bass, later went on to become a full time member completing the current line-up.
2020 saw them write and record their four-track EP 'lll' which will be released February 2021 alongside producer Will Maya (The Answer) in Los Rosales Studios in Spain.
They also signed up with booking agents Roulette Media and have already been confirmed for Teddy Rocks festival, HRH Ibiza, Love Rocks and Lindos Rocks in Greece.
Summer 2020, saw Black Tree Vultures sign up with Iron Road Talent management and they are already planning things behind the scenes for when live performances return!
