Take the Black is a pop rock band from New York that delivers catchy hooks, lush with harmonies that confess compelling stories. They write music that people can’t resist singing along to. The band has been releasing a steady stream of content on Spotify, iTunes, and Soundcloud which keeps them fresh and relevant. Recent artist spotlights on multiple New York radio stations, including 107.1 The Peak FM, have given the band an opportunity to reach more listeners.


Performing all over the New York City area, from the Relay for Life  in Yonkers to Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, Arelene’s Grocery and the Bitter End in Manhattan, Take the Black is constantly working at their craft.


Take the Black’s most recent release, Starry Night, is just the latest example in a wave of high-energy pop rock tunes that are eminently listenable, yet nuanced. With their new EP, Blood Moon, set to drop in early March, Take the Black can’t wait to get in front of more crowds at different venues to share what they have been tirelessly working towards.
