Florence Black was formed in 2013 between the valleys of South Wales UK by Tristan Thomas, Perry Davies & Jordan Evans.

The band has been steam rolling since the Florence Black – EP was released in 2016 recorded by Romesh Dodangoda (MotorheadBring Me The Horizon) catching the eyes and ears of AC/DC‘s Brian Johnson, Corey TaylorLzzy Hale & gaining national radio airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 2. After touring the UK and playing their first major festival in Scandinavia with Kasabian, they began to cement their position as one of the most powerful three piece on the circuit with the energy and passion they produce at their gigs.

As of 2018, Florence Black released The Final – EP, signed a management deal with Soil frontman Ryan McCombs, heavily toured the UK and Spain, invited back for a second sold out show with Stone Sour in Switzerland. The eagerly awaited debut album is coming…

Blue Nation draw from a reservoir of influences including Cream, Zeppelin, The Beatles and more recently Rival Sons and Vintage Trouble to name a few. The new album The Kaftan Society has been in the making for over a year whilst the band toured with the likes of Skid Row, Dirty Thrills, Steve Conte (NY Dolls) and Brian Downey’s Alive & Dangerous (Thin Lizzy’s original Drummer)

Frontman Neil Murdoch explains; The album came together naturally, it took about 3 months to write and then we spent a year perfecting the songs in the studio with Alex Vine of AVR Music. The title “The Kaftan Society” is a direct link to us. It’s about being who you are, and not being scared of what people think and feel about you. Standing up for love and dismissing any form of hate. The album has so many different themes running through it, we wanted people to be able to relate to the songs and feel like it’s for them.
