BlackboxRed @ V11, Rotterdam


*** New record Salt In My Eyes is out now on Butler Records and available worldwide ***

"This is one boy/girl duo who aren't dealing in cute and cuddly lo-fi. Fast, furious, and possessing more attitude in their smudged eyeliner than should be legal." -

The moment the duo steps on the podium they become BlackboxRed. A heavily crushing grunge steamroller. A hounded human machine. Eva stares. An atom-splitting gaze. She tortures her guitar and menaces vocally. Meanwhile Stefan becomes a  hammering octopus hitting his drums mercilessly. A stroboscope – the devil’s light – dazzles the spectators. No escape route.

Inspired by the likes of The Dead Weather, Crystal Castles and The Joy Formidable you get the idea of what these two are getting at. After releasing their debut album ‘The Gunner and the Ghost’ (2013), several singles and the EP ‘Beak to Beak’ (2015) , the band has currently finished recording their second full-lenght, 'Salt In My Eyes', which is out on September 21st 2018 by Butler Records 

Played alongside: Savages, Claw Boys Claw, Blood Red Shoes, Sisters of Mercy and Rolo Tomassi

"BlackBoxRed seem to have found a space, unbeknownst to anyone here in the Netherlands, and use it to create a sonic worldview in a full-on rock record that more affected, or fashion-conscious acts will find nigh on impossible to beat"  - Richard James Foster, Loud Than War

"The Gunner and The Ghost is an inspired debut, full of angst, energy and thought" – Dan Hegarty RTE 2 FM
