Brussels-based rock band Black Mirrors released their Funky Queen EP in 2017 and they soon entered into a worldwide deal with Napalm Records. Soon afterwards, they released their first full-length album, Look Into The Black Mirror. Their new album, Tomorrow Will Be Without Us, will arrive on November 4th, 2022 via Napalm Records in multiple formats.
To celebrate the announcement, they’ve released first single “Hateful Hate, I’ll Kill You”, along with an accompanying video. The new album is inspired by the idea that we, as humans, are likely to destroy all living creatures on earth, including ourselves.
Black Mirrors says about their first single:
’Hateful Hate, I‘ll Kill You‘ is one of the first songs we wrote and recorded for this album. We felt the song really helped us to shape the album as it embraces a lot of different influences like Nirvana and Hole, but also Queens Of The Stone Age, Jack White and even Radiohead.
The song is a shout out to the bitter world we‘re living in, a shout out to our consumerist society! Our beautiful planet has its limits! We are on a sinking ship. We have left so many living beings to die, to disappear even. We need to change now more than ever – we have to change our ways.
About the new video, the band states:
The energy of ’Hateful Hate I‘ll Kill You‘ video is pretty close to what you can expect from a live show of Black Mirrors. Furthermore, we focused on what‘s behind the lyrics. The colors, mainly yellow and red, were used as a symbol of the burning of our forest, our planet. One of the outfits Marcella‘s wearing is a nod to the last mass extinction to warn us of the 6th mass extinction we are currently living in. At the end, she even changes into a tree to embody the return to nature.
Black Mirrors’ sophomore album includes grunge-infused guitar lines, big grooves and “unchained vocals” from Marcella Di Troia. It sets out to channel “the flavor of MTV‘s glory era showcasing acts such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Hole, Alain Johannes, Alice In Chains and beyond”.
