If you’ve been on any social media in the last few months, you most likely saw the add for the upcoming show at The What’s Up Lounge. Them Evils and The Black Moods are making a stop on their current summer tour. I hadn’t heard of either band before, but after listening to them this should be one hell of a show!
Them Evils had a breakout year in 2018 with 1st single and video “Got Me Rockin'”, which premiered @ Loudwire. Key playlist adds included Spotify Rock Hard, & Riffsplaylists, Alternative Press Discover, and Loudwire Wired Weekly; Apple Music Breaking Hard Rock; Pandora New Rock channel; Google Play Music Rock Hotlist and Hard Rock Hotlist radio, helped the band gain momentum. Press looks were posted at Kerrang, Loudwire, AXS, Rock Revolt, and others that added to the bands critical acclaim.
They have been road warriors for the past 4 years – the band have caught the ear of no less an icon than Zakk Wylde, as well as touring with The Pretty Reckless, Alter Bridge, Red Sun Rising, and 10 Years, among others. The band plans to continue touring, with breaks to finish recording additional new music to be released in the latter part of 2019.
The Black Moods play raw, amplified rock & roll. The band formed in Tempe, Arizona. Inspired by local heroes like the Gin Blossoms and Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers — both of whom have become champions of the Black Moods, often tapping the group as a high-profile opening act — The Black Moods began building their audience the old-school way: by hitting the road. They toured heavily, promoting albums like their 2012 self-titled debut and 2016’s Medicine with gigs across the country. By the time “Bella Donna” hit the radio airwaves during the summer of 2018, The Black Moods’ fanbase had grown exponentially. The song became a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, paving the way for the band’s biggest shows to date.
The event page still lists that there will be a special guest. It still says TBA, but The Zealots are listed on the event and they have the event on their Facebook page. I think it’s a safe bet that The Zealots will be on this one.
