With an appetite for guitar-driven, raw, amplified rock and roll, THE BLACK MOODS deliver a serving of "Sugar"-their latest track out now across all digital platforms. Stream/download it now at https://orcd.co/sugartbm. B>"Sugar" marks the second sampling of new music from B>THE BLACK MOODS' forthcoming third studio album due later this year. The new single follows the melodic-driven debut track "Heaven" released this past March which explored a more experimental sound. The trio-vocalist/guitarist Josh Kennedy, drummer Chico Diaz, and bassist Jordan Hoffman-have also shared the thrilling, Wild West-themed music video for "SUGAR", which can be seen on KNAC.COM HERE. Directed by Michael Levine (Skillet, Peyton Parrish), the video was filmed at Rawhide Western Town in Chandler, AZ and shares the story of a classic bank heist with a twist.

""Sugar" is definitely one of the sexiest songs we've written," says Kennedy. "The tempo and the groove are a sensual foundation for the melody and lyrics. Lyrically, I think it paints a picture of passion and danger. The lyric, 'Don't forget I'm kinda crazy, cinematic, a little magic' lends its hand to a bit of the dramatic. I feel it sets the scene for the song."

THE BLACK MOODS have also announced additional dates for their headlining summer tour. The band will head to Monett, MO on July 5 and play across the Midwest and East Coast until August 11 in Madison, WI. They've also announced a headlining weekend of shows in Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ in September with special guests to be announced. See full dates listed below. THE BLACK MOODS recently opened for ZZ TOP and Rick Springfield and have previously toured across the U.S. with acts including Shinedown, 311, Godsmack, Collective Soul, Jane's Addiction, The Dead Daisies, and Gin Blossoms, along with appearances at rock festivals including Aftershock and KUPD's UFEST.

THE BLACK MOODS' acclaimed 2020 album SUNSHINE earned the band four Top 30 singles--including their first-ever Top 20 charting hit with title track, "Sunshine", which peaked at #16 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock radio charts. The trio released their fourth album INTO THE NIGHT in 2022 via Wit Hustle/The Orchard/Steelhorse Entertainment with Grammy Award-nominated producer Johnny "K" Karkazis (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down) which was lauded by Metal Edge Magazine as "raw, riff-heavy, blues-drenched rock delivered with a nod to the classic acts that came before them, but filtered through a youthful, high-energy lens." In 2023 the band teamed up with THE DOORS' guitarist Robby Krieger to record an electrifying cover of THE DOORS' 1970's hit "Roadhouse Blues" with guest vocals from rock singer-songwriter DIAMANTE.
