Black Peaks have announced a six-date return to the stage that runs for 10 days in April 2020.

That band are desperate to bounce back from a difficult 2019 as the band were forced to cancel a number of massive gigs, including supporting titans like The Smashing Pumpkins and Gojira, due to lead singer Will Gardner’s illness.

Not only did they cancel support dates, Black Peaks had to bin their own tour as well as a slot at Download Festival last summer. Understandably, they can’t wait to get back into it.

“Last year was a bumpy ride for all of us at camp Black Peaks,” said Gardiner. “But we’re getting stuck right into 2020 by playing some of our favourite cities with two wicked bands. We can’t wait to see you all again.”

Tickets purchases for their cancelled Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol shows are still valid, while those bought for Glasgow Garage are valid for their Oran Mor show and the old London Electric Ballroom tickets are valid for the Scala.

After a good 2018 that saw them release their second album All That Divides to widespread praise, 2019 started well. New single King was named the rockest record by Daniel P Carter on his Radio 1 show, while Annie Mac labelled it hottest record on her show.

But then illness struck and the rest is history. 2020 will be the year for fans to hear King live, as well as some material from their new album. The bill is looking sick, too, with the St Pierre Snake Invasion and Sugar House joining them for the ride.
