Some believe that Rock has had its day, but Black Mustang removes all doubt.
Growing up on the depth of their parents LP collection, Black Mustang draw from a diverse range of influences – but are not limited to – the hard rock outfits of the “swinging sixties” like MC5 & the Stooges, to the heavier sounds of Black Sabbath, AC/DC & Led Zeppelin.
Combining the power & intensity of the early 90’s mixed with their own slice of attitude & DIY approach.
Black Mustang’s sound has developed the raw power and swagger of their many influences to produce a raw but refined sound.
Having just locked in their newest member in early 2010, Black Mustang are very excited with the current lineup, writing from the same page & embarking on what is set to be frantic 2010.
Black Mustang consist of
Starry - Vocals/ Guitar
Reddy – Guitar / Vocals
Joey – Drums / Vocals
Dan – Bass / Vocals
With respect to Black Mustang audiences, they can expect more of the same energy & passion to which Black Mustang have made their name, adding a sometimes darker edge to their uncompromising hard rock.
The next album, currently in pre production, is Black Mustang at its creative and instinctive best, with a mish mash of retro musings inspired by shared experiences of a band dedicating their lives to R&R rebellion.
The follow-up to Black Mustang’s “Between the Devil the Deep Blue Sea” is being recorded at various studios with Jeff Lovejoy, and is set for release late 2010 on Plus One Records through Shock.
