BLACK LUNG emerged from a brutal Baltimore winter back in 2014, and from that emergence they arose victorious, wielding a trademark Maryland Doom-influenced balance of melody and power. With that vital underpinning, Adam Bufano and Elias Schutzman (founding members of THE FLYING EYES), along with multi-instrumentalist Dave Cavalier, crafted a sound heavy on volume that pushed hard into experimental territory. In lieu of a bass guitarist, the three opted for an unusual setup with a sonic palette defined by a multitude of amps, drop-tuning, and copious effects.
After releasing BLACK LUNGs self-titled debut and being named "Best New Band" by the Baltimore City Paper, they embarked on their first European tour in 2015, including a performance at the Rockpalast Crossroads Festival on German national television. Their sophomore album, "See The Enemy", was produced by J. Robbins (guitarist and frontman for post-punk icons JAWBOX; producer for THE SWORD and CLUTCH) and released in 2016, with a subsequent European tours hitting Freak Valley Festival and Desert Fest Belgium, alongside the likes of GRAVEYARD, DEAD MEADOW and ALL THEM WITCHES. After several years of touring and songwriting, BLACK LUNG is back with their most ambitious work yet, "Ancients", produced by Frank "The Punisher" Marchand (producer of THE OBSESSEDs "Sacred"). The title has a double-edged meaning, paying homage to the ancient powers of the earth while rejecting the ancient ideals of men who want to drag society back into the past. Released March 8, 2019 on Noisolution (Europe) and Ripple Music (North America, Asia, Australia). Album artwork and photography by Ruby Gold (www.instagram.com/rubygold_504/)
