🔥Just got a hold of the new EP from 𝑩𝑳𝑨𝑪𝑲 𝑾𝑯𝑰𝑺𝑲𝑬𝒀 titled 'Rebel', and damned if it's not the highlight of today, and tomorrow.
Five well crafted songs which sounded great when blared loud. I need to give this another spin - but instant highlights are: 'Whiskey Rock n Roll' which we played on the last podcast (is this the strongest song Black Whiskey have written?!) - the stinging guitars on the title track 'Rebel', the heavy riffage and guitar solo on 'Raising Hell' and overall - their authentic Australian sound. One listen in - and I'm giving it the thumbs up. Go chase it down: blackwhiskeyaus.com

Australian Rock Review
To end the night was Black Whiskey.
A band I have been told is a must see and tonight I saw why.
A great pub rock sound with a punch and the bands slogan ‘Rock n Roll is Dangerous Again!’ suits them to a T. They continued with Too hot to handle and finished off their set with another new song Wild n Free. It left me wanting more and thanks to the amped crowd shouting for an encore we were treated to a special encore of No More. I went in with a high expectation after the many raving reviews of this band and I was wasn’t disappointed. Awesome show, awesome night.

THE COLLECTIVE POWER OF THE GROUP
There is a good deal of experience behind Black Whiskey, who supported Australia’s Rose Tattoo, England’s Skindred, America’s Hollywood Undead, as well as other great local acts as Diva Demolition. The band who has released a string of acclaimed singles, and have been aired on radio stations across the globe, recently dropped their latest track, entitled
“She’s On Fire”
On one level, the song is a transparent anthem ready to be used on television during the maximum possible number of montaged sports action highlights...……
Black Whiskey released 'RAISING HELL' which has already seen airplay overseas and in Australia with stations such as 4ZZZ in Brisbane, Valley 89.5 FM in Canberra as well as numerous stations in Europe and the USA, it debuted at #18 on the triple j unearthed charts and racking up over 1500 plays within the first few days and it is still climbing.
