There’s been a whole lot of recording activity in the Black Whiskey camp of late – the results of which are a new single titled ‘Wild & Free’. They’ve just announced some East Coast dates as well. We are supporters of this loud Brisbane outfit – they crank out no bullshit rock n roll and are a band with much momentum. Case in point is the ever increasing plays of their current track ‘Raising Hell’ which has seen the band’s global fan base grow rapidly.
Black Whiskey spent months trying to find the right person who could mix and master their new single ‘Wild & Free’ – someone with the experience who could bring the tune to life and make it roar. It was the combination of Michael James and Dave Donnelly, based in California who the band settled on.
James and Donnelly have impressive resumes and have worked with Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Reverend Horton Heat, Hammerfall, Hole, Poison, Ratt, L7, Sixx A.M, Steve Vai, Journey, Chicago, Whitesnake, AJ Croce, Robben Ford, Janes Addiction among others.
Wild & Free is due out in August to co-incide with the mini-tour. If you live in Sydney, Newcastle or Wollongong be sure to make a note of these tour dates. Black Whiskey are also on at the Backroom in Brisbane on July 20th then hit the Crowbar in Brisbane as well on July 28th. Further band info is at their website and go follow em on facebook
