With a distinct groove steeped in classic rock and a modern intensity, Black Heart Saints exploded onto the scene with a bravado that is clearly backed by talent. In recent years, the studio singles “Reach the End”, “Lines” and “Misery” topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio Charts, paving the way for appearances at SXSW Festival, Upheaval Festival, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and serving as the support act for such national artists as Slash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, Sevendust, Steel Panther, Pop Evil, Buckcherry, Dirty Honey, Jared James Nichols, King's X, The Winery Dogs, Mammoth WVH, Crobot, and more.
Most recently, Black Heart Saints announced the release of the new single "Human Xstacy" in association with legendary label Cleopatra Records. The song was produced by Geno Lenardo (FILTER, DEVICE) and mixed/mastered by Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Guns 'N Roses, Sons of Apollo, Asia).
Although the pandemic era proved to be a particularly challenging year for the entire entertainment industry due to the global pandemic and subsequent shutdowns, Rolling Stone “Artist You Need to Know” Black Heart Saints quickly adapted to the unprecedented conditions by partnering with distinguished brands Harley-Davidson and Loop.tv for exclusive streaming performances that captured audiences from all around the world.
While the band first garnered commercial success in 2019, they were attracting massive attention long before that. Their first full-length release ALIVE, drew acclaim from fans and critics alike and led to the now famous “Road To Sturgis Tour.” Putting Black Heart Saints’ charismatic live performance to the test, the band took the stage at the world-renowned motorcycle rally, attended by over 500,000 bikers from all around the globe, and the group earned the respect and devotion of a whole new audience base. This experience catapulted Black Heart Saints to the West Coast where they completed an extensive tour, including a headline performance at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA.
Setting the stage for success early on in the band’s career, on April 12, 2018, Austin City Council and Mayor Steve Adler officially proclaimed April 12th to be “Black Heart Saints Day.” The following year, the band was awarded #1 Best Rock/Metal Act at the prestigious Austin Music Awards, being recognized alongside other local luminaries such as Willie Nelson and Black Pumas.
