“They rock! They fucking rock!" (Seasick Steve)
Their resumé looks very much like a shameless hymn of praise. Black Box Revelation – or: explosive duo Jan Paternoster and Dries Van Dijck – have now created five awesome albums, toured the world, and have supported for the likes of Beady Eye, Jane’s Addiction, Iggy Pop and Seasick Steve. They also worked together with producer and Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Alain Johannes. They provided songs for the soundtrack of True Blood and even made it onto David Letterman.
They’re now putting the finishing touches to their sixth album, to be released in spring 2023. They were assisted on it by English producer Andy Savours, known for his work with the likes of Black Country, New Road, Arctic Monkeys and ‘masters of silence’ my bloody valentine. The intent? To make another pure rock ‘n’ roll album in the spirit of their debut ‘Set Your Head On Fire’.
Anything else to add, Jan Paternoster? "We felt like recording an album that would make the kids want to pick up a guitar again. To make music to lost your voice to. Songs that make you start throwing beer when you see us live. Quite simply, its the rock ‘n’ roll album that we wanted to make. And if you don’t like it: ‘well... we won’t fucking care’.”
