about

In March 2013 BlackboxRed travelled to France for the recording of their debut album. This wasn't done in a regular studio, no, they build a complete studio in a 17th century mansion in a remote area of Northern France.

The acoustics of the old house played a big part in the overall sound of the album. At a certain point the weather conditions were so extreme that the band was snowbound, completely shut off from the outside world, which resulted in a loud, grandiose, sometimes spooky atmosphere in the songs.

The album is produced and recorded by Chris Hamilton, a good friend and hero of the band, with his travelling studio "EEK! Recordings".

about

BlackboxRed Leeuwarden, Netherlands

BlackboxRed sparks with energy. While Eva fights a fierce battle with her guitar, Stefan's propelling drums spiral them out of control, resulting in an awe-inspiring spectacle. Make no mistakes; this is one loud, seductive, and danceable Dutch duo.

Genuine rawness combined with bits of grunge, garage, blues and electro, topped with the out-bursting energy of a well-shaken soda can.
