Johnny Wore Black

UK dark rock artist Johnny Wore Black uses words to draw listeners in to his unusual tales to create a powerful and cinematic sound.  No surprise as you might have recently seen this A-list stunt performer playing a Wildling alongside Mastodon on a recent episode of Game of Thrones!

Johnny Wore Black  will independently release a double A-side single for ‘Firefly’ and ‘Comfy Slippers’, on June 15th.

Classic Rock are hosting the the ‘Comfy Slippers’ video, making it their “Track of the Week”. Check it out here: http://www.teamrock.com/features/2015-06-05/classic-rock-s-tracks-of-the-week-29

You can also see the stunning animated video for ‘Firefly’ below, with sketchy, monochrome visuals augmenting a classy song about facing your own personal demons head on and the inherent challenges therein.

David Ellefson of Megadeth chose to work alongside Johnny Wore Black on production duties, as did Grammy Award winner David Bottrill. The fact that such storied veterans of the business believe in the music of Johnny Wore Black goes some way to confirming the potential of this unusually dark artist.

In the words of David Ellefson himself, “Johnny Wore Black has a very unique sound that I like and as an artist creating a unique sound is one of the hardest things to do, you either have it or you don’t and to me Johnny Wore Black definitely has it.”

Notable collaborators of Johnny Wore Black include Tim Simenon (Bomb The Bass), Danny Langsman (Shanks and Bigfoot), Loretta Heywood (Winter in July), Simon Hutchby & Gez Walton (Earthtone 9) and more.

The singles are both taken from the current Johnny Wore Black album ‘Walking Underwater Part 2’. Available now, it followed debut LP ‘Walking Underwater Part 1’ as a double whammy of albums released in 2014 to excellent reviews. ‘Part 2’ sees Johnny Wore Black  continue to evolve his unique energy and song writing style, with an intense, passionate lyrical style.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
