‘Side Of The Road’ is a slice of rocky, distorted, melodic loveliness from BBD’s self titled debut album - a collection of tracks fusing ambient, electronic rock with uplifting melodies to create a sound that refuses to be denied. The single also features remixes from producer extraordinaire Emperor Machine, Dinamo Azari, of Azari & III fame and techno whizz John Tejada.

 BIG BLACK DELTA is the brainchild of LA based artist Jonathan Bates - no stranger to pushing boundaries - who until recently was the driving force behind alt. rock favourites Mellowdrone, has been heavily involved in M83’s live and studio sound, has also worked with the likes of White Sea and has also been in demand for remixes working with Daft Punk, Rob Zombie, M83, Dhani Harrison’s Thenewno2’s (and most recently with Maynard from Tool’s and his new project Puscifer).

 BIG BLACK DELTA’s explosive live show features dueling drummers and an orchestrated light show using visual elements of the bespoke album artwork, which was created by Jonathan himself & creative director Caspar Newbolt – as seen in the recently nationaly telecast feature on Carson Daly.

BIG BLACK DELTA are kicking off 2013 in a big way, with buzz shows at SXSW (featured show of the day SXSW site), Camden Crawl & Great Escape in the UK and the release of their new single ‘Side Of The Road’ and debut self-titled album.

This follows on from a year that saw BIG BLACK DELTA tour with Jane’s Addiction, The Joy Formidable, M83 and release tracks including ‘IFUCKINGLOVEYOU’ and ‘Betamax’ much to the delight of bloggers everywhere. The band also collected some heavyweight fans with Jay-Z and Dave Navarro taking to their online outlets to heap praise on the band.

"BBD sound so massive, it's going to be weird if they don't 

actually become massive." - The Guardian

“Immersive, intense and brazen” - Clash
