French sleaze rockers Blackrain released new single “Revolution” and announced the brand new album “Hot Rock Machine” that is going to be available on 12th Apriil 2024.

So, this is not an ordinary release. The band even noted that they have material for the next new album. To no complicate things, here is what they say about the situation on their official profiles:


Did you see that one coming??

Out now everywhere, Revolution is the first single from the upcoming album « Hot Rock Time Machine » to be released 12th April 2024

This album is made of 5 tracks from « Lethal dose of » (2011) and 5 tracks from « It begins »(2013), a « best of » you could say but no, not really, let’s explain in details:

Due to a constant demand through the years, we had to find a solution to bring those albums up on streaming platforms, in this case, to be fair it’s more like a compromise, but a highly interesting one, to avoid any kind of copyright or contract issues we had to re-record from scratch the tracks in question.

We couldn’t re-record everything, too much time, work and also, we know by experience that you can never completely re-capture the wild and magic touch of a long gone moment.

So we picked the songs in function of their potential and of what we would have liked to do differently back then, a different arrangement, a different tempo, a different tuning, some changes are obvious, some changes, for some, won’t even be detected.

At least, everybody will hear the difference in the production since our good and talented friend Hannes Braun once again worked his magic mixing the music, probably also the reason that from trying to upload old tracks on internet we ended up making something you can call « a brand new album »

We are confident we will manage sooner or later to get the original records available for streaming, for the die hard nostalgic fans, but until then, this sounds like a damn cool treat.

We hope you guys will enjoy this, it’s a huge help if you can save Revolution in your playlists, watch the lyrics video, share it on social medias and spin it as much as you can!

Physical formats : CD´s and Vinyls are on the plate, pre orders start today!!

Please note, the band has been focusing at the same time on writing new material, in fact, we will soon have enough songs to make a next album!!
