2017 saw Brussels-based rock sensation Black Mirrors take the world by storm with the debut of their awe-inspiring »Funky Queen« EP. Feverishly acclaimed live appearances and a powerful festival showcase later, the band fronted by extraordinary vocalist Marcella Di Troia quickly inked a worldwide deal with leading rock and metal empire Napalm Records, soon gaining further praise with the release of their first full-length album, »Look Into The Black Mirror«. Garnering high marks from both fans and critics alike, the band stepped up as one of Belgium’s best kept rock secrets. Continuing to exceed expectations, the unstoppable four-piece has now crafted a new masterpiece and one of rock’s leading highlights of 2022 – their sophomore release, »Tomorrow Will Be Without Us«, out November 4, 2022 via Napalm Records!
Are we killing our own planet? No, Black Mirrors don’t believe that we as humans have the power to destroy mother earth. However, as the album cover below portrays, it’s clear who will end up burning – all living creatures, us. »Tomorrow Will Be Without Us« is a clear statement impacting every single one of us living on our planet.

As first album single »Hateful Hate, I’ll Kill You« proves, the band pushes their fuzz pedals to the max, delivering a powerful rock anthem you can’t help but move and groove to, yet perfectly showcases Black Mirrors’ unforced, versatile and organic talent.
Black Mirrors’ sophomore outing is a deep, soulful and vividly textured 90’s inspired rock record with umpteen layers begging to be picked apart with each spin, and lyrically, traverses humankind’s increasing apathy towards the world around them. The grunge-infused guitar lines meld in harmony, giving way to memorable riffs, rhythmic gems, big grooves and the addictive, beautifully unchained vocals of Di Troia.
On tracks such as »Snake Oil« and first album single »Hateful Hate, I’ll Kill You«, the band pushes their fuzz pedals and delivers powerful rock anthems you can’t help but move and groove to. The album fluxes from fierce and blustery to often gentle and calming, channeling the flavor of MTV’s glory era showcasing acts such as Nirvana, Radiohead, Hole, Alain Johannes, Alice In Chains and beyond. Like on songs such as the crisp juggernaut »Lost In Desert« and otherworldly »Ode To My Unborn Child« – a deeply haunting ballad about whether or not to bring a child into an ever-increasingly cynical world – perfectly represents Black Mirrors’ unforced, versatile and organic talent.
Contrary to the album’s title and its evocative themes about today’s society and a world falling apart, tomorrow does belong to Black Mirrors – there is no doubt they will own the next decade providing us with the finest in heavy rock and melodic grunge grandeur the world of tomorrow unconditionally needs!
“Like all of us, we had to go through a lot during these past years. »Tomorrow Will Be Without Us« is our answer to all the questions we had during that time, our reflection on the ecological catastrophe we’re all witnessing, our thoughts on our consumerist society, …”, the band comments. “Writing these songs gave us the strength to go forward and to heal us, it was our catharsis. We deeply hope it will bring you some light in these dark times.”
Together with the touch of worldwide-acclaimed producer Alain Johannes (Eagles Of Death Metal, Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, No Doubt), Black Mirrors have reset the bar to unexpected heights, and their new album promises to leave its mark on today’s rock scene worldwide!
We can be sure, the rock world of tomorrow would be a lonely place without Black Mirrors, and »Tomorrow Will Be Without Us« locks them at the top.
