Black Peaks release White Eyes video

Black Peaks have released a video for their track White Eyes.

The song is lifted from the UK outfit’s latest album Statues, which came out last year.

Vocalist Will Gardner says: “White Eyes is probably the most challenging song on the record for us – both musically and personally. We spent years writing and re-writing this song to get to a point that we were all happy with.

White Eyes pushed us all to the limit and is a huge representation of the struggle we all went through as a band to get this record out to the world and the things we went through as people over the last two years.

White Eyes is about the fear of getting old and the uncertainty of what each of us face in our own journey.”

Black Peaks recently announced they’d head out on a joint UK tour with Heck in September. Before then, Gardner, guitarist Joe Gosney, bassist Andrew Gosden and drummer Liam Kearley have a number of live shows planned over the coming months.

Black Peaks, along with Joey Jordison and The Amity Affliction feature on the third edition of Metal Hammer: In Residence on Spotify.
