The Black Delta Movement are a four-piece heavy garage rock band from Kingston-Upon-Hull, England. They formed in 2010 and played their first show at Hull’s Freedom Festival and subsequently released their first EP three months later. Since then they have released a further three EP’s and three singles. Their current line up is Matt Burr, Dom Abbott, Liam Kerman and Jacob Tillison.

The band has played over 200 shows since starting out and have built up a solid reputation as a great live act. The band have supported bands such as The Jesus and the Mary Chain, The Stranglers, Kaiser Chiefs, Temples, Drenge, Toy, The View, Shaun Ryder, Jefferson Airplane and many more.

The bands latest release, The Trip, is a cover of a song by Kim FowleyOriginally released in 1965, The Trip was released at the forefront of the change from the clean rock n roll sound to a more psychedelic, garage sounding rock, which can be heard in the original and the bands cover. Fowley gave his thumbs up to the bands cover saying “Great, guys! Thanks so much”, a big achievement for any band who have chosen a famous song to cover. The song itself pays homage to the original while at the same time giving the song a more grunge sounding guitar and intensity.

The Black Delta Movement shows no signs of slowing down with a new release in the works due for release in May 2016 and a constant stream of gigs to come, which details can be found at the links below. I look forward to hearing more of their work as they progress and evolve into an even better band.
