Have you heard Black Lab? – Have you heard of Black Lab?

Black Lab are an American alternative rock band that have released four main albums and will be very soon releasing their fifth album. The multi- talented Paul Durham who is the lead vocalist is extremely excited about this and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.

I have followed Black Lab’s strange career since their success of having one of their tracks as part of the Spider-Man soundtrack. As soon as I heard this powerful song Learn to Crawl, I was hooked and wanted to hear more and discovered they had a fantastic album to go with this track, the album called Your Body Above Me not only had the power and distortion elements, dirty drums and awesome vocals but had such a melodic element to them that set them aside from many other rock bands. For me, I loved everything about this album. The lyrics were great, the hooks very catchy but combine a grungy sound with melodic and superb vocals and you have something very special.

Have a listen to one of my favourites tracks from 1997 with a beautiful smooth sounding guitar track:-

Your Body Above Me had two rock radio hits in America, Wash It Away in 1997 and Time Ago in 1998. The Band has changed a lot since their first album and they are now an unsigned band releasing their own albums. Like Andy Powell in Wishbone Ash, Paul Durham has kept Black Lab going with his talent and determination.


Here is a later track “Mine Again” from their third album – Passion Leaves A Trace.:-

Like I said it is coming their fifth album, which doesn’t seem to have a name yet but I think the image is going to be as shown at Kickstarter.com:-


Get pledging today to support this project and awesome band, receive their new album on release plus other goodies.

Keep up the good work Paul – Great Stuff
