Originally conceived as an instrumental album in late 2022, BlakLight’s newest recording “tHE pADDED rOOM” has since mutated into a instrumental-ish album. Utilizing vocal loops and samples, the sound is moodier than BlakLight’s typical four to the four dark synthpop.

Adam Collier and Brian Belknap refer to this as being the album number 2.5, serving as both a stopgap between albums while working on other projects and as an exploratory exercise, breaking the norms of their previously recorded output.

Up next for BlakLight is “Prey”, a brand new track, which will be released on the forthcoming Darkness Calling curated Bandcamp charity compilation “Back From the Grave Vol. 1” on June 1st, with all proceeds donated to The Trevor Project in support of LGBTQIA+ youth and suicide prevention. On June 9th, the band will release “Prey” on all digital services.

On the horizon from their other projects, Mind Machine releases a new single, “Pry Your Eyes”, on May 26th, while SilverScene’s next single, “Dark Skies”, will be released on June 2nd.

Their third proper full length album, “The Haunting Of Us”, is scheduled for release on October 27, 2023.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
