What a day, night, day night.. Our practice room was flooded yesterday. We were assured it was nothing bad, much worse than we thought. But as I like to believe, it could have been much worse. So I left for work at 7:00 AM and I just walked through the door at 12:10 Friday night. My body is beat but we have another room and a lot of gear to clean and hopefully, everything still works.
Angel Black is pleased to announce that have agreed to a recording contract with a record label in Europe. The formal announcement will be delivered by the label sometime in November. After a lot of back and forth with the label and the band, we finally came to an agreement.
The record will be released worldwide in January or February of 2019. We feel that we are in the right hands to be very important to this label and not shelved or sidetracked. They believe you promote a new record for a year, not a week or two. Which in the end was a big selling point to Angel Black.
As for touring, we want to get out there and tour as much as possible. But everyone knows today it's hell for a new band to break. If it makes sense and we have a record that is making noise we will go out on the road. We're taking every step to do that. We will have a fulltime publicist and marketing firm that has been hired to get Angel Black noticed and played in all formats.
We will be doing a pre-sale offering through Pledge Music. There will be some unique and collector's items available. We have plans to announce something very special for you "the fans" that help band after band keeps them living there dreams. Stay tuned here on facebook and our website for details www.angelblackworldwide.com
In closing, there are many people that helped this dream become reality.
Huge thanks to Brandon at the Library Studios. Brandon went far beyond the call of duty to always help Angel Black. Josh at SER Rehearsal and Recording Studios. If it wasn't for SER, we would have never finished writing the songs. (We had nowhere to practice after a fire at our rehearsal shed closed the business down). Nathan at Vault Mastering, you really are a pro, we were so lucky to find you. A big thank you to you three.
Angel Black has a big announcement coming in October. We have worked since 2013 to reach this point. it hasn't been easy it hasn't always been fun. We're going to look straight ahead of the road in front of us. We know this step we're about to take will get us much further along in our musical journey. We will have more news coming soon!
Just announced: Saturday August 4th 2017 Tempe Tavern-Tempe AZ W/Kill Command. More details will be coming soon!
We just posted our online music player for the website. It doesn't matter what page your on, scroll down to the bottom of any page and listen to Angel Black. We posted Strikeforce, Cyberspy and a brand new one we really think you'll like. It's called "The Dream That Stood Alone". Were in the middle of shopping the band to major record labels worldwide. Were also looking to start booking more gig's. we haven't been playing enough live shows, that will change with signing with a label. Angel Black will go anywhere there's metal fans. Were looking to go around the world as many times as we can. On a final note we had a problem with Reverbnation over billing our credit cards. We won't tolerate that BS, We are no longer associated with Reverbnation. For right now you can listen to some Angel Black music right here. Look for us to move the video to Black Heart over to the website very soon.
We'd like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe 4th of July..
Angel Black will be playing our first live show Saturday May 26th at Chopper John's in Phoenix Arizona. We be providing support for Maiden AZ one of the very best tribute acts in the valley. Click the link for details about the show. All in a Rowe Productions

Good News.... Yesterday we received the final Master from Vault Mastering. Now we're full speed ahead!
We are in the process of shopping for the right record label for us!
As Angel Black begin's that very critical process, were going to give the fan's of the band a taste of the finished product. Were going to produce a "Sampler" for everyone to hear.
Expect to hear all of the songs on the record. We will have a 20 to 30 second snippet from each song. We're also putting together pictures from the video, in the Sampler.
AB, is in the process of shooting 2 more videos for release with the debut CD Killing Demons.
We have been getting constant requests to release the video for the song BlackHeart. At this point we have to do what is best for the band. If we get a green light from our legal team, we will release the video. Angel Black, would release it today if it was solely up to us.
It's been a day since the news came down of Glenn Tipton battling Parkinson's disease, for the last 10 years. Glenn did as much as any guitar player to keep me pushing to get better, every day.
I looked up to him in a big way and I have to say I'm stunned by the news. It's no secret that Angel Black although a one guitar band, Priest has always been a bright shining beacon of light to follow, for the kind of music that we write.
Angel Black, would like to send all the healing power it could ask for and best wishes to Glenn. We know there's no cure for Parkinson's as there is no cure for many diseases that keep taking our friends and family members.
In closing, I sure hope the funding that is donated to finding a cure for these horrible diseases, is finding it's way to the right pocket's. That is something to truly wish for, that generation's from now, were not still losing loved ones to disease.-AB
Nathan James at Vault Mastering, is putting the final touches on our album. Nathan, worked for the World Famous "Hit Factory" for many years. He has mastered many records that you hear everyday on the radio. Nathan James is based in Chandler Arizona, but still flies to NY for session's. We feel blessed to have him on the Angel Black team!
Angel Black has been selected to write and submit a song to an upcoming movie. We will enter The Library Studio's this Friday night to record one song for a movie to be released either late this year, or more likely in 2018. This is a wonderful opportunity for the band. Although nothing is ever promised in this type of setting, the band feels confident we can get the job done. After this, we will be remixing the yet to be determined E.P or Full Length Album. At the World Class Rock House Studio's in Santa Rosa California. We have a lot of change happening over the next three months. Without letting the "Cat" out of the bag, everything is changing. We have connected with some wonderfully talented people, to help take this band to the next level. A big thanks to the people who we have re-connected with recently. This really has led to some great changes. We knew all along, we couldn't have what we en-visioned "Angel Black" to be. It takes a team. Without the right people helping and pushing us in the right direction, this opportunity would have never presented itself. You know who you are!
Thank you AB
Were Back! Actually we never went away. Besides welcoming back our original Drummer "Daniel Beck". Stay tuned a lot is going to change over the next few months. So for now, we are going to remix and remaster the 4 songs that we recorded in 2015. Were going to release the E.P. in CD format, along with being released digitally worldwide.
You can still enjoy streaming our music at Soundcloud and ReverbNation. Lead Singer John Cason has been very busy writing and recording a New Exiled Record, to be released on Killer Metal Records in 2017. It's good to be back and moving forward with a solid plan for the future.
We have posted anything for awhile, do to things beyond our control. We will say this, we be back to work this month after a couple months off. The record will be complete by the end of the year. We are currently being shopped to labels overseas. We look forward to connecting with the right label for the band. Without a label in place, we want to take our time and give you the best record that we can possibly produce. Were sure that the next record will have a time table, so were taking as much time as needed with this record. We will be looking to play live dates this fall and into 2016.
For a limited time we are posting all three songs at!
You can also go to www.reverbnation.com. Type in Angel Black and the song "Strikeforce". Help us get Strikeforce to that number one spot. Thank you so much for your support .....Angel Black

We are releasing three songs online through CD Baby. The songs Cyberspy, Strikeforce and Black Heart can be purchased as singles. We decided it was time to give you the fans something to look forward to as we finish the record. So if you like one song, I think you'll like all three. The songs will at almost every online music store ITunes, Amazon, Google Play just to name a few. Were debating putting the songs on our website or fb page. This is a huge step for the band, as we march on towards securing a major independent record deal. For more details check our facebook page. We have a photo session next week and we should resume finishing the record very soon.
Do to issues with Mastering, our first song to the public could be delayed by a couple hours to a couple of days. We hope everyone understands that making a record is forever job. We got pushed behind and it was totally out of our hands. Hang in there! I can promise you this, nobody wants these songs out more than the guys in the band. So much thanks to Brandon at the Library Studios. He has been over seeing much of what is going on.
