BEYOND THE BLACK Release New Single "Winter Is Coming" Announce Self-Titled Album Beyond The Black


German Symphonic Metal ascending stars BEYOND THE BLACK can already look back across a stratospherically successful career, despite their youthful years. Upon release, their 2015 debut album hit like a bomb in their home country. Songs Of Love And Deathbesieged the German Top 15 for weeks, which led to the band being awarded the Metal Hammer Award for “Best Debut” in 2015. Its successor Lost In Forever (2016) entered the German charts at #4 and paved the way for a huge tour throughout Germany, and across countries like the UK, Russia and Japan. Since the band’s live debut in 2014 they have played some of the world’s biggest Metal festival like Wacken Open Air (several times) and have toured as support to heavy weights such as AEROSMITH, KORN, SCORPIONS, SAXON and WITHIN TEMPTATION. During the campaign for their third record Heart Of the Hurricane(2018),BEYOND THE BLACK landedtheir first ever European headline tour, which took them across 10 countries, with most dates selling out.

Before they’d even finished the Heart Of the Hurricane touring cycle, BEYOND THE BLACKhad already gone back to the studio to write and record album number four. The result was Horizons,released in June 2020, which entered the German album charts at #3 (CH #6, AT #16, BE #53) marking the band’s most successful album release to date.

Now, two years later, BEYOND THE BLACK are back to launch a new chapter. Following the release of recently highly acclaimed tracks "Reincarnation" and "Is There Anybody Out There", the band are proud to announce their new, fifth studio album – the self-titled Beyond the Black will drop on January 13th 2023! The pre-order launches now, accompanied by dark and powerful new single "Winter Is Coming", setting the tone for BTB’s biggest headline tour to-date, starting on October 6th in Vienna.

Jennifer Haben comments:

"Many changes happened in the world and behind the scenes during the making of this album. We were confronted byour innermost fears and hopes while trying to do the right thing in turbulent times. This is what you call growth and this album gets to the heart of this process we all share: Here’s BEYOND THE BLACK and it’s gonna be yours soon!"
