BlackboxRed will release their 2nd album ‘Salt In My Eyes’ through Butler Records on the 21st of September 2018. 

Black Box Red - heleen haijtema-2

‘Salt In My Eyes’ is the 2nd album of the duo BlackboxRed from Leeuwarden. BlackboxRed (Eva van Netten and Stefan Woudstra), make dark and intense Indie Rock. You’ll hear elements of Grunge, Shoegaze and Noise. It may remind you of The Dead Weather, Crystal Castles, The Joy Formidable and Brutus. With a venomous gaze and threatening vocals Eva won’t let you go. The intense live performance resulted in supports for Savages, Blood Red Shoes, Claw Boys Claw, Rolo Tomassi and Gruppo di Pawlowski, as well as Eurosonic and Noorderslag and several venues in Germany, France, Denmark and Spain.

After the release of their debut album ‘The Gunner and the Ghost’ (2013), multiple singles and the EP ‘Beak to Beak’ (2015), BlackboxRed is now even more dark, mature and dangerous on this new album, they also got Inspired by the dark French television series Les Revenants (the recipients) and Greek tragedies. For the recordings of the album, the band built a studio together with producer Chris Hamilton (Torres, Kate Nash) in the home of Dutch the festival Welcome to the village. The mastering is done by Jason Mitchell (PJ Harvey).
