THIS is Black Mustang, Brisbane’s answer to everything that Australian rock’n’roll once was & ought to be.
With the latest single “Loaded Gun” due for official release in October 2012 as a 4 track limited edition 7” Vinyl, Black Mustang are taking to the streets with a national tour throughout late October/early November 2012.
“Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea” is a blistering affair that displays loud and proud all the things that are so damn good about Black Mustang; big walls of guitar, chaotically annihilating drums and gloriously infectious, air-fisting anthems”
Time Off Magazine 4/5 stars
Motivated & driven by an eclectic mix of Detroit 1970’s and Australian pub rock circa, Australia’s best kept indie rock secret continue to cultivate a genuine underground legacy & cult following through their retro inspired high energy garage rock.
“Black Mustang; big walls of guitar, chaotically annihilating drums and gloriously infectious, air-fisting anthems”
Time Off Magazine 4/5 Stars
Black Mustang’s spirited & sweaty live show saw them cut their teeth on the live scene with legends of the Australian Rock the Angels, Celibate Rifles, Nick Barker & The Reptiles, The Stems & Lime Spiders, as well as the more recent cream of Oz-rock revivalists Wolfmother, British India, 67 Special, 6ft Hick & Tame Impala.
“There’s an underlying momentum that eventually leads to brash explosions, and the force behind the inevitable crash is a worthwhile payoff. Both relentless and surprisingly urbane, the throttling charge of the chaotic guitars is held in check by spot-on backing vocals, steady-hurtling beats, and lyrics.”
CD Baby (US) – Editors Album Rock of the Month 5/5 stars
The band has reached a worldwide audience, with tracks selected & featured heavily on TV Shows & international campaigns including:
Vampire Diaries, Californication, Pretty Little Liars, Entourage, Supernatural, The Unit, Bikie Wars, Bondi Rescue, Recruits, City Homicide, Guerilla Gardeners& Thank God You’re Here.
“Every time a great album comes out of Brisbane it swells my heart with pride. Being a big advocator of the amazing talent we have sitting right here in our capital city, I can joyfully say Black Mustang have risen to the occasion. A true rock ’n’ roll vibe is entirely evident on ‘Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’”
Tsunami Magazine 9/10 stars
With three releases, white line fever, bar fights & 3am lockouts under their belt 2011 saw Black Mustang deliver their highly anticipated 2nd album “Loaded Gun” featuring the singles “Ain’t Going Down” & “Love, Lies, Bleeding” as heard on national radio. The album again received critical acclaim, including a recent 2012 QMA nomination for the hypnotic blues track “Devil Blues”.
