BLACK | LAKES debut album

If you've made it over here to check out our GoFundMe page, then we thank you!

For those of you who don't know us, we are BLACK | LAKES. 

“DARK, BUT EXCELLENT" – BBC INTRODUCING

"I'M BLOWN AWAY, THIS SOUNDS INCREDIBLE" - DOWN THE FRONT MEDIA

GHOSTS [OF OUR MEMORIES]

We're a group of five guys from South Wales and the South West of England doing something we genuinely believe in, and from the reaction we've been getting both online and at shows, and with the latest single being premiered by Wyatt Wendle on Planet Rock, we get the feeling some of you believe in it too. 

If you've been with us for a while, then you will know that we have twice been lucky enough to work with one of the best producers in the industry right now (Romesh Dodangoda). The first time resulted in our debut EP, and the second, even more excitingly, was to start recording new tracks for our debut album! 

Right now, we've got several brand new songs in the can, but unfortunately, studio time is not cheap, and we have now run out of money...
...This is where you come in! We have the rest of the album ready to go, we have the energy, we have the belief in our message, but we need your help. 

We're asking for £3,000, which we appreciate is no small sum, but anything you can give towards this would be greatly appreciated. 

We are looking to head back into the studio as early as possible next year. We have always believed that 2020 would be the year we bring out our first album. Help us to make that a reality? 

Thank you for all of your support thus far, and for any donation you chose to make. Every single penny raised will go into making our debut album a reality. We can't wait to share it with all of you - Scott, Daf, Will, James & Lee - BLACK | LAKES
