Boston indie group Blackout Balter have collaborated with Dave Keuning of The Killers for their latest track “Heavy Hand” the leading single from their upcoming record Twist and Bend. The single has been dubbed “one of the catchiest debut singles of the year”. The track can be streamed below and Twist and Bend can be pre-ordered here.
While Blackout Balter have undoubtedly achieved commendable success throughout their career, additional praise is owed to the group’s decision to slip Keuning a demo of their work. This led to the group’s latest record being recorded at The Killer’s famed Battle Born studio. This mutual admiration continued further, ultimately resulting in Keuning contributing cello and guitar to three of the release’s six tracks.
Stay tuned for more information regarding the record’s release and any potential tours.
