Artist Biography Available in: "Black Peaks" are an English progressive rock band from Brighton. The band formed in 2012, initially under the name Shrine, and released a debut self-released EP Closer to the Sun in 2014, the band then decided to adopt the far-less-commonplace moniker Black Peaks. Retaining their blend of math and post-rock, fitting somewhere between Pelican and Mars Volta, the group started to garner the attention of major labels. Gaining extensive airplay on BBC Radio 1 from the likes of Zane Lowe, the quartet signed a deal with Sony in mid-2015 and set about recording their debut album at the Middlefarm Studios in Devon with Mark Roberts. The resulting Statues was released at the beginning of 2016,
Towards the end of 2017, the band announced that they had parted ways with bassist Andrew Gosden, replaced with new member Dave Larkin.
