BLACK SKIES Issue Roadside Update; Live Song Posted

North Carolina power trio BLACK SKIES have been ravaging the North American masses since November 14 on their 2011 Fall tour in support of the recently unleashed On The Wings Of Time full-length. The band checks in from the van:

“The tour is going great! We’ve played some of our favorite venues. hit some new ones and had a great first time playing Canada! The crowd, promoters and venues in Montreal and Toronto were very welcoming and we look forward to going back! We’ve been playing songs off our new record for the most part including a tune we hadn’t really played out live before and a May Blitz cover on some nights. It’s been a blast being back out. Our friends Make from Chapel Hill were on the first half of the tour with us. It’s been great to share the stage with these guys every night. They’re an excellent band, and good, fun people to hang with. We joined up with Vaz in Montreal for a string of dates. It’s time to take over Easthampton, Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Annandale!”

BLACK SKIES play like an amped-up version of Sleep: think stoner metal on a caffeine bender. It’s visceral hard rock defined by low-end, hypnotic riffing.” — Creative Loafing

“On the Wings of Time is a head banging punk rock ear fest with a loverly heavy grunge metal tinge… It’s a loud cacophony of guitars with understated vocals. It’s music to lose yourself in.” — The Kalidiaries
