NEW ALBUM: “RELEASED” OUT NOW BlackRain are pleased to announce two UK headline shows in August, in support of their brand new album “Released”, out earlier this year. During 10 long years spent in learning the tortuous ways of Rock 'n' Roll, the band met many people who would become instrumental in the band’s career: Frank, their so precious drummer; legendary bands like Europe, Papa Roach, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, Steel Panther, Kissin’ Dynamite and Crash Diet, all of whom they played with; the team of the “New Talent” French national TV show, where they delivered memorable live performances to an audience of several million, and famous photographer Dean Karr responsible for the new band’s photos. Last but not least, BlackRain found American producer Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, The New York Dolls and John Lennon) a true music "legend" who provided his great expertise in the making of “Released” and the band’s previous album "It Begins".

Recorded in the suburbs of both Paris and Los Angeles in the early part of 2015, “Released” is the result of many months of collaboration between BlackRain and Jack who, prior to recording, spent weeks listening and analyzing tons of demos in order to come up with the best songs and create the best arrangements, applying his magic touch to the whole process. Warren Huart, Aerosmith’s sound engineer, along with Jack, mixed the tracks at the Spitfire Studio in Laurel Canyon. To support the release of their brand new album, BlackRain will perform for the first time in an exclusive headline show @ The Black Heart in London on 29th August.
