This is an archive of the band profile for The Black Bloc.
Formed in the autumn of 2006, The Black Bloc spent the following 10 months locked in their rehearsal room, endlessly jamming and creating brand new material.
The band then spent most of July 2007 in HD1 Studios with producer Steve Whitfield to record their self-titled debut album.
The Black Bloc provides compelling socially critical music accessible through the band's keen ear for rhythm and melody. With strong assertive vocals laid down over tight hip-hop grooves, surrounded by powerful and atmospheric guitar work, the band rejuvenates the traditional bass, drums, guitar, and vocals format to great effect.
Influenced by a myriad of artists and musicians, The Black Bloc's unique sound resists any straightforward classification. That said, people intrigued by the prospect of a concoction of leftfield, trip-hop, psychedelic rock and the like, will not be disappointed.
The Black Bloc is currently gigging locally with a UK tour planned for 2008..
