‘Home of the Mad and the Shameless’ is the eccentric, off the wall album that floods every ear with energy. The Blackpool four-piece, Black Eddy, will be dropping the album on the 25/06/22 and they have not held back. Simultaneously fun, energetic and emotionally poignant, Black Eddy have put their soul into the album. Their lead single, Repost, captures their grunge punk rock spirit. Repost opens with catchy guitar before all four members come together to unleash their satirical sound. The six track album demonstrates the best of Black Eddy.
The album captures both the honest emotions and the fearlessness to just have fun with music. Repost satirises internet culture with the recurrent line of ‘you have the right to be offended’ among other anti-status quo chants.
“With Repost we wanted to soundtrack the doom-scroll. It’s no secret that millions around the world struggle with internet and phone addiction (ourselves included). Like all the songs on the album, we wanted to tackle a real issue that we’re going through by making as much noise and having as much fun with it as we can!”
Countless bands have tackled themes of mental health and war yet it is refreshing to see Black Eddy examine our internet culture in such an unapologetic and energetic way. Their subversion of mental health tropes makes the album what it is and Black Eddy turn dark topics into songs you can both smile and mosh to. The songs are inspired by the bands’ real world struggles with schizophrenia, addiction and memory loss. Yet they turn these struggles and emotional vulnerability into cathartic hard rock.
Don’t just listen to Black Eddy through your speakers, though, their explosive live shows have made them a must see in the Blackpool scene. Black Eddy are building their empire through gigs and they can only grow. With the upcoming release of their new album, they undoubtedly will.
