Danish new wave of classic rockers Black Oak County will release their second album, Theatre Of The Mind, on April 26th. The record was produced by Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Pretty Maids, Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Volbeat), with the mixing and mastering being handled by Jonas Haagensen. A new single, Wasted Life, will be released in early March. It follows the first taste of the album, Pretty Pistol, released last year, together with the video below!
The band comments: “We feel that the making of this album have made us the band we want to be: focusing on the songs, and always working harder to achieve new goals. This album is a milestone for us, after the band became a trio. We are so happy about it and can’t wait to let people hear it. We hope they love it as much as we do!”
Upon the release of their homonymous debut album Black Oak County was promised a bright future. Classic Rock Magazine, Flick of the Finger and Metal Hammer all hailed the band. The album got massive airplay on Danish radio stations P4 and Myrock as well as receiving more than a million plays on Spotify among other online streaming services.
In the fall of 2017, in this period of great success, singer Niels Beier chose to leave the band and music all together. But now, following a long and gruelling search for a new singer, Black Oak County are back, stronger than ever, with a revamped line-up and a new sound, coupled with the same familiar energetic and powerful statement that people remember from the debut.
Black Oak County is now a hard-hitting, catchy and hooky power trio consisting of Jack Svendsen (guitars), Mike Svendsen (drums) and René Hjelm (vocals/bass). The band now focus their sound even more upon the melody and the song, mixed, to great effect, with the big and meaty riffs for which the band is known and loved.
