BLACKTOOTHED - Release Single/Video "You Never Know", Join Arising Empire Label

Leipzig based rock outfit, Blacktoothed are looking at their long history as a band, and including their name change, the band is celebrating a new beginning with their upcoming material. Earlier releases like »Seeker«, exposed the band as a promising newcomer, characterized by their unique combination of a solid rock sound with a lot of filigree guitar work, catchy pop-hooks, topped up with a touch of an 80's vibe.

Blacktoothed stand out for using and combining a wide range of stylistic elements from different genres in their songs. This is how '80s shred guitar solos meet modern, straight rock rhythms and vocal melodies that could cover anything from power ballads to pop chart hooks.

Listen now to their debut single on the Arising Empire Youtube channel.

'You Never Know' was produced by Annisokay guitarist Cristoph Wieczorek and Julian Breucker at the famous Sawdust Recordings studio and comes with straight rock riffs meet subtle, atmospheric synth melodies and heavy guitar melodies. The overall tragic vibe is also reflected a lot in the lyrics. "You Never Know kinda tells the headline story to the upcoming material, a story of self-reflection on the involvement of one's own actions and how they, unconsciously performed, can contribute to the misery of others.", guitarist Mathilde explains.

But despite the always very inspiring and motivating time during the songwriting and recording process, the band also longs to be back on stage in filled clubs, as soon as the current pandemic situation allows it. In the past few years, blacktoothed have gained a lot of live experience, having shared stages with well known bands like Acres, Annisokay, Bad Omens, Hands Like Houses, Polaris, Thundermother and many more, as well as through other live highlights, including opening up the IMPERICON FESTIVAL and many other open air concerts.

"We are very happy to take our next big step in collaboration with the Arising Empire family and look forward with great anticipation!"
