Black Peaches are touring in support of their stunning new album 'Fire in The Hole' - released in May.
'Fire In the Hole' is the long-awaited follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut 'Get Down You Dirty Rascals'. It is a dazzling a display of musicianship, just as accomplished, if not more so, than its predecessor (see reviews below).

Black Peaches come from a musical point halfway between the swamp and the tropics - a psychotropic stew of country boogie, spiritual jazz and funk.
With fuzz-toned slide guitars, Latin percussion and shimmering keyboards, Black Peaches sound is a cinematic experience, the soundtrack to a bar fight at the country disco or an incantation of the black arts.
The band are led by Rob Smoughton, probably best known as a long-time member of Hot Chip and Scritti Politti, and whose alter-ego Grovesnor has released a number of albums to critical acclaim.
Black Peaches' highly regarded musicians have also worked with Floating Points, Alexis Taylor, Zongamin, Karl Blau, Karen Elson, Vanishing Twin, Cold Specks, Reverend John Wilkins, The Severed Limb and many others.
Reviews for 'Fire in The Hole':
excellent rock juggernaut... explosive riffs... winning concoction of soaring guitars..." - 8/10 Uncut Magazine
Black Peaches stand out as one of a handful of acts unafraid of staying away from the mainstream... a genre-busting album filled with pop hooks.. - 5/5" NARC. Magazine
sheer joy emanates throughout 4/5 Q Magazine
"Absolutely brilliant" - Stuart Maconie BBC 6 Music
"ridiculously infectious slice of pop..." - Clash Magazine
"...overflows with moments which celebrate the sheer, foolish, inexplicable joy of playing music..." - The Quietus
Support from James Alexander Bright - Equal parts hazy sunshine psychedelia, lo-fi electronic soul, melodic pop nous, a husky croon and forwards-looking-backwards studio techniques.
