Blackwaters are an indie-punk four piece from Guildford. They have stormed into 2017 celebrating the release of their single ‘Down’ which is available to download on the 3rd of February.

This tour is following their Radio 1 and Radio X debut outing, of their ‘anti-anthem’ ‘So Far Out’. As the boys are tearing apart the stages with their energetic rock performances up and down the country, they are gaining more and more interest and fans. The loud and intense 18-year-old indie thrashers also have gained interest, and co-collaborated with the likes of Carl Barât of the Libertines, Spike Stent and even former Prodigy co-writer Olly Budren, proving that they are ‘making the right kind of racket’
One date to look out for is at the infamous Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh. They will be playing there on the 9th of February. Sneaky Pete’s is a small capacity, Grassroots Music Venue who host some of the best up coming talents, which is why fans love coming to this intimate venue as you can be up close and personal with your favourite bands, almost like seeing a band at a house party.
Looking back on 2016, they performed on the BBC Introducing Stage at Leeds Festival, they supported SWMRS and DMA’s, as well as raking in thousands of plays on Spotify.
Max Tanner, David Carpenter, Ollie Franklin and James Watkins will be names to remember, as BlackWaters are destined to become a big name in the Indie-Punk world.
