“This Mancunian three-piece hone a unique combination of Undertones, Husker Du and Pixies influences. The statuesque, pop-tastic melodies, mature introspection and Who-esque riffs are simply intoxicating.” CLASSIC ROCK


“raw, edgy, energetic guitar music….the power to impress without the aid of gimmicks or a six-figure marketing plan. Think Skunk Anansie or Feeder.” – ROCKSOUND


“An emotive debut from UK art-rockers!”  – METAL HAMMER


“… the combination of song-writing, arranging, playing, singing and production, all wrapped up in an unstoppable adrenaline rush of rockin’ proportions” – DEAD EARNEST


“A level of musical integrity that gives me the confidence to truly define them as art-house rock…a genuine sound – a real band for real people, with a frothy layer of grit on the side.” – CMU MUSIC NETWORK






David R Black have been together since 2002 and as well as releasing their own records they have gigged extensively throughout the UK, Europe and the USA and have played shows with Three Colours Red, Black Stone Cherry, New Model Army, Living Colour, The Tubes, Spin Doctors, Elbow, Fishbone, Breed 77, The Buzzcocks, The Mission, The Wonder Stuff, The Buzzcocks and many more.






In 2010 David R Black released their 2nd album 'Secret City' – “a darkly complex album that chronicles the human condition. It's themes of love, loss, hope and despair resonate in all of us.”  Both their first album ‘Hearts and Stars’ and ‘Secret City’ are still available from iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and eMusic.

After a bit of a respite working on other projects, the trio are back in the studio working on their eagerly anticipated 3rd studio album, which will be supported by a full UK tour on its release.
