The band comment:

“Since our debut album release in 2021, we have been really busy touring in the UK and EU and, alongside our busiest touring year in 2022, we had written and demoed more than fifty songs. We spent a long time selecting and arranging our songs and feel that they are not just our best to date, but also the ones that show our development as a band. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved. BED OF NAILS is based around the theme of love. The good, the bad and everything in between that emotion. We had an amazing time in the studio recording it with Romesh. He has helped us to create the exact sound we were aiming for and we believe that we have achieved exactly what we had imagined the album to be.

“‘LOOK UP’ is a proper driving track. It’s feel good central. The song is about loving someone but being aware of the consequences of doing so. The lyrics are metaphorical and could be interpreted in different ways, like looking forward to the future or being optimistic. The track has a more classical rock feel, a finger picked guitar riff, a driving bassline and huge drums!”

Florence Black have performed at some of Europe’s biggest festivals this summer, including HellfestResurrection and Sweden Rock Festival. The band will conclude 2023 with an appearance at Planet Rockstock.

Now Florence Black announce a UK headline tour in support of their upcoming album, set to take place in February.

Magazine.

Florence Black kicked off 2022 with tours alongside Kris Barras Band and Ugly Kid Joe, followed by a tour as special guests on Steel Panther‘s Res:Erections tour. In a year peppered with festival appearances across Europe and the UK, they embarked on their biggest performances yet, with two sold-out stadium shows to 90,000 fans in Frankfurt, opening for German giants Bohse OnkelzFlorence Black were immediately invited back out to join Bohse Onkelz on their completely sold-out arena run of Germany in August and September. The band rounded off their busiest, most successful live year to date with their own largely sold-out WEIGHT OF THE WORLD headline run in October.
