BLACK FAST Ink Deal With eOne Music

Monday, 3rd November 2014

Midwestern progressive thrashers BLACK FAST have announced a worldwide deal with eOne Music. The band plans an all new full length LP next year and could not be more excited.

“What an amazing day for not only Black Fast, but for every local heavy metal band out there,” says guitarist/vocalist Aaron Akin. “Our signing to eOne Music is a reminder to keep grinding, writing, rehearsing, opening up for nationals, developing relationships and doing whatever it takes.”

The yet-to-be-titled LP will be the bands follow-up to their self-released, Starving Out The Light.

BLACK FAST has a short but concentrated history. Started in 2010 by fellow music students Aaron Akin, Trevor Johanson, Ryan Thompson and Ross Burnett, the band has bulldozed on an upward trajectory ever since.

Akin continues, “We want to thank everyone who helped make this day happen, including our favorite national bands like Havok and Battlecross for spreading the word, the metal blogs for the great reviews, our management for guiding us, promoters for booking us, and to eOne, for thinking we are worthy of joining a roster of artists that include legends like Overkill, Unearth and High On Fire.”

Stay tuned for more info on studio developments and tour announcements, and in the meantime catch them at The Firebird in their hometown of St. Louis with Battlecross on November 30th.

And finally, Akin concludes: “We promise not to disappoint any of you. Expect to hear the torture and fun that we have making music together, our honest desire for creating heavy metal and our appreciation for this opportunity to translate into a high-energy live show and the best records that we can make.”
