Florence Black Bio

FLORENCE BLACK [Planet Rock, Best New Band 2022] are rising rock giants, ascending from Merthyr Tydfil in the rock/metal goldmine that is South Wales, UK.

The band is award winning guitarist Tristan Thomas (lead singer/guitar), Jordan Evans (bass/backing vocals) and Perry Davies (drums/backing vocals). FLORENCE BLACK has spent most of 2022 on the road and on stage making up for lost lockdown time.

Last summer, standalone single BIRD ON A CHAIN reached number 1 in the iTunes Rock chart. The anticipated and critically acclaimed debut album WEIGHT OF THE WORLD followed, peaking at number (6) in the Official UK Rock & Metal Album Chart, (25) Official UK Physical Album Sales Chart, (3) Official UK Independent Breakers Chart and (33) Official UK Album Downloads Chart.

Singles from the album achieved their own successes, CAN YOU FEEL IT? and fan favourite SUN AND MOON both became ‘Track of the Week’ in Classic Rock Magazine and both placed highly in the iTunes download chart on release. SUN AND MOON was also listed on Planet Rock Radio’s ‘A’ playlist two weeks running and was highly praised by Kerrang Magazine.

FLORENCE BLACK have previously supported Stonesour, Reef and Phil Cambell and are preparing to join Steel Panther as main support on their EU Res:Erections Tour from June. The band returns to the UK to prepare for their own, WEIGHT OF THE WORLD headline run in October.

Live Review Text

Florence Black hit the stage like dynamite, consistently incredible live. Prolific singer/songwriter Tristan Thomas (24, vocals, guitar) owns the room from the off with his huge voice, charismatic stage presence and astonishing technical ability. Tristan is partnered up front by the thunderous energy of Jordan Evans (26, backing vocals, bass) and backed by the rock solid grooves of Perry Davies (24, backing vocals, drums). All three musicians give explosive, highly physical performances that transfix the audience throughout. Florence Black are a must see live band.

Memorably beautiful melodies, crushing heavy riffs and retro vibes combine to create Florence Black’s MASSIVE live sound.
