Black Honey announce their third studio album ‘A Fistful of Peaches’ due for release on March 17th, 2023 on FoxFive Records. It’s looking very much like the album the band were born to make, heavier, rawer more honest and holding nothing back whilst still retaining their soaring, swaggering melodies.
Ahead of the album release, the band unleash a new single the anthemic “Heavy” which addresses the weighty subject of grief and was written on the day the band’s fan club founder passed away from Covid. A genuinely nice chap who was much loved by Black Honey’s loyal fans
Izzy Phillips says of the song “We wrote this song the day I found out the founder of our fan club passed away from Covid-19. We were talking about the weight of grief and the way it holds you down, about the parallels between grief and depression. The weight of mental illness and how it brings you a deeper understanding of grief. There’s always a glimmer of light though and I love how Heavy has that kind of glitter darkness. It’s in my nature to become co-dependent and I think in this song I’m reaching for someone to help me climb back out. I talk a bit about the never-ending story as it was my first dialogue with death and depression as a child. Watching Artax the horse getting swallowed by the nothing whilst Atreyu screamed helplessly from the edges of a swamp really spoke to me.”
