Blackfinger, the band fronted by current The Skull/former Trouble singer Eric Wagner, have announced the release of their sophomore album.
“When Colors Fade Away” will arrive on September 15th from M-Theory Audio on CD, limited edition colored vinyl, and digital formats.
Featuring photos from Matt Bluejay and graphic design by Al Oaks, ‘When Colors Fade Away’ is a striking and artistic package, with a full color 12-page CD booklet and a 4-page vinyl insert. Vinyl is limited to 400 copies of blue/black marble.
Wagner commented on the new record saying:
“Colors were a common theme throughout the first record… I think it was a reference for life, or maybe it was hope. What happens when colors start to fade or you feel like all hope is lost? I think there comes a time in everyone’s life when you need to confront your dark side in order to get to the light.
When I saw the photographs of the old abandoned funeral home by Matt Bluejay, I thought it would make the perfect album cover for When Colors Fade Away, and the start of the journey to feel good about oneself again.”
Eric has amassed a new lineup of musicians for the new album, who include the legendary guitarist Terry Weston of Penance/Dream Death fame.
The full lineup for Blackfinger now includes:
Eric Wagner – vocals
Matthew Tuite – guitar
Terry Weston – guitar
Matthew Cross – bass
David Snyder – drums
