Crippled Black Phoenix are proud to unveil the very first track, taken from the upcoming album »Banefyre«! The new full-length is set for worldwide release on September 9, 2022 via Season of Mist. The song »Blackout77«, which is accompanied by a music video, is now streaming via the official Season Of Mist YouTube channel.

Mastermind Justin Greaves comments on the track: “A story of when, just for a night, the underclass, the downtrodden, the subjugated and outcast, all exploded in a rage when the power in New York City went down. The tension of years of oppression and abuse was released. For one night the freaks made themselves known and fired arrows to the sky. »Blackout77« is one part of our »Banefyre«, The Musical journey. Fitting with the other tales and laments giving light to life’s outcasts, the freaks, the different. Who’s laughing now?”

The thread that binds Crippled Black Phoenix’s bold and towering discography – a dozen studio albums, a half-dozen mini-albums, a handful of compilations and swaths of bootlegs – could not be more apropos circa 2022. Since its 2004 creation by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Justin Greaves, Crippled Black Phoenix has served as the voice for the voiceless, whether it be animals, the unequal and the different. Greaves and longstanding vocalist and lyricist Belinda Kordic have often proffered that these beings cannot fend for themselves. Henceforth, Crippled Black Phoenix’s mission has been to shed light on the human condition and the inequalities that befall humankind and its creatures. Their battle marches on with their latest studio album, »Banefyre«.

»Banefyre« follows 2020’s »Ellengast« – an effort that found Crippled Black Phoenix employ a series of notable guest vocalists alongside Kordic, prompting Metal Hammer to describe it as their “most cohesive and emotionally devastating record.” Kordic is now paired with Swedish vocalist Joel Segerstedt, who made his Crippled Black Phoenix debut last year via the »Painful Reminder / Dead Is Dead« single. Piano, synth and trumpet player Helen Stanley and additional guitarist Andy Taylor complete the lineup. Greaves says Stanley and Taylor “fit so well creatively,” which has made Crippled Black Phoenix feel like a band when making plans and decisions.
