Bootblacks Drop Music Video For "Forbidden Flames"

Brooklyn post punk/cold wave/new wave band Bootblacks have dropped the video for their latest single “Forbidden Flames“.

The song is part of our current playlist and is the the first single from the forthcoming album “Paradise” (TBA) due out next year. Grab it here.

Speaking on the new single, vocalist Panther Almqvist states: “‘Forbidden Flames’ has been a long time coming. Personally I think it encapsulates the musical trajectory the band has been on for quite some time. I think it also represents the forthcoming album and our intentions musically moving forward. We’re thrilled to introduce our new member Kalle’s guitar playing and musical influence to the rest of the world, which we feel fortunate to have been treated to through the writing and recording process.”

Bootblacks “Forbidden Flames”

Bootblacks current line-up consist of Panther Almqvist (Vocals), Kalle Fagerberg (Guitars), Barrett Hiatt (Synth). Since the group’s founding in 2010, they have been enthralling audiences with their frenetic live shows from North America to Europe. Their sound is described as a balance of contradictions: both pensive and buoyant, referential and modern.

The band’s latest album ‘Thin Skies’, their first for Artoffact, came out in 2020 to wide acclaim.
