River Black (Ex-Burnt By The Sun, Etc.) Debut “Boat”


River Black, who reunite three former members of Burnt By The Sun along with Revocation bassist Brett Bamberger, have debuted another new track. Below you can stream “Boat” off of their self-titled debut album, out July 07th on Season Of Mist. Vocalist Mike Olender said of the song:

“‘Boat‘ addresses the challenge that humanity faces to do the right thing for the right reasons. We all aspire to be better people than we are – and few people genuine think that they are a bad person because we all have our ways of justifying our feelings and our behaviors to ourselves.

Our paths are ultimately dictated by the fragility of the human spirit and our instinct to survive. Fate has a way of setting the stage for where we will go and who we are. Simply put, there’s little use escaping human nature. Lyrically, this song is a bridge between where Burnt By The Sun dissolved and this new project began.”
