BLACK PUMAS RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM AND MUSIC VIDEO TODAY

“A debut so perfectly realized by the standards they’ve set themselves that you wonder what could possibly come next.” — The Guardian

 

“Few artists seem to tap the collective unease of the national moment quite like Austin’s Black Pumas…never missing a beat is the tireless, charismatic energy of singer Eric Burton.”

Rolling Stone

 

“The Austin favorites need to be seen to be appreciated…(Burton’s) presence on stage is robust, a whirlwind of movement and gesture.” — Chicago Tribune

 

Today, Black Pumas — deemed “the breakout band of 2019” by NPR’s Here & Now — release their “perfectly realized” (The Guardian) self-titled debut album. A collaboration between 28-year-old busker-turned-frontman Eric Burton and Grammy-winning guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada, the album marks a landmark year for the burgeoning Austin-based group, who’ve gone from local phenomenon to a tour-de-force that’s winning over fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

After making their name during a residency at C-Boys in Austin that quickly became “the hottest party in town” (Austin-American Statesman) on the back of Burton’s “whirlwind of movement and gesture” (Chicago Tribune), Black Pumas have emerged not only as a live juggernaut but an incredibly capable and creative studio band. Across 10 tracks, the band brings together woozy Ghostface Killah instrumentals, Motown rhythms, and the introspective grandeur of dusty highway folk-rock to create what Uncut calls “a soul explosion.”

 

Today, the band also announce an extensive series of tour dates throughout the rest of the year, including dates in New York, Los Angeles and throughout Europe. This follows their recent European tour opening for The Heavy. Full dates below.
