Blackmarket: Blackmarket [EP]

Blackmarket [EP]
Self-Released [2008]

Fire Drill
If you are ready for a very simple straight-forward EP of alternative rock then Blackmarket is the record for you. The band teamed up with Sean Slade (Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr., Hole) and Matthew Ellard (Morphine, Weezer, Elliott Smith), for a month-long recording process to finalize tracks that have been in the works for years. You always hear about bands being big in Japan but Blackmarket really are selling out shows in Tokyo and played the FujiRock Festival. This is your opportunity to catch what all the fuss is about.

Key Track: "Shelia"

Band With Similar Fire: The Get Up Kids
