Netherlands-based Gothic/symphonic metal outfit Blackbriar have signed with Nuclear Blast Records. With three EP’s and a full-length album already out, the group are ready for their next chapter while working on their second record. To celebrate the signing, the band has shared a video for their new song “Crimson Faces.” 


Vocalist Zora Cock comments:

“Dear fans, we’re so excited to have partnered up with Nuclear Blast Records!!! Having been an independent band for many years, we’ve finally found the perfect fit that makes our dreams come to life! Joining forces with this incredible label is a huge step for Blackbriar! We promise you a lot of exciting things are coming, starting with a brand-new single that’s OUT NOW! Listen to ‘Crimson Faces’ on all music platforms, and let us know what you think! Love, Blackbriar.”


Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R Nuclear Blast Europe, adds:

“Please warmly welcome Blackbriar to the Nuclear Blast family! It has been a pleasure to meet them at Joost van den Broek’s studio and to get a sneak preview of the exciting things to come. We’re thrilled to work with such a creative team. It’s amazing what the band have already achieved completely DIY, creating a unique world of their own. Expect to be enchanted –this is probably the biggest gift artists can give us.”


Zora continues:

“‘Crimson Faces’ tells a story of being haunted by ghosts, jealousy, and insecurities, based on the old classic Gothic novel ‘Rebecca’. You asked us to make a different kind of music video, one of us performing instead of portraying a story, and we thought ‘Crimson Faces’ was the perfect song to do this with. We hope we’ve fulfilled your wishes!”
