Black Wail Interview
One of the founders of the band Black Wail joins me on Revelator show #232 to talk about the bands new EP titled” Chromium Homes”
Jersey City,NJ has always had an underdog complex. Dwarfed in size by New York City to the east, and in rock and roll relevance by Asbury Park to the south, it’s home to a supportive tight-knit culture and community of musicians and artists that play and create twice as hard to stand out. It’s this creative underground that birthed Black Wail in 2014.
Black Wail, or “JC’s supergroup,” as a local promoter dubbed them, began playing out in mid-2014. Drawing from 70s influences including Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, the band’s Jersey roots are also on display. One can hear Monster Magnet’s lysergic stoner rock, the campy punk energy of Misfits and the guitar heroics of Zakk Wylde among their psychedelia, doom and hooky hard rock. The band, rounded out by drummer Ed Chaurreun in 2015, quickly found themselves playing around the New York region.
