The Black Moods – Opening Many USA 2019 Dates

The Black Moods Will be Makin’ Some F@cking Noise!!!

We are excited to announce that The Black Moods will be opening with their raw, amplified rock & roll during much of the Spring, 2019 USA portion of the Flesh & Blood World Tour.

Born in the Arizona desert and reared on stages across North America, the band delivers a modern update of a timeless sound, breathing fresh life into a familiar mix of electric guitars, anthemic hooks, and percussive stomp. The Black Moods’ three members — frontman/guitarist Josh Kennedy, drummer Chico Diaz and bassist Jordan Hoffman — aren’t looking to reinvent the wheel. Instead, they’re piling into a vehicle that’s existed for decades, souping up the engine to suit their contemporary needs, and steering those wheels toward their own rock & roll horizon.

The band formed in Tempe, Arizona. Inspired by local heroes like the Gin Blossoms and Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers — both of whom have become champions of the Black Moods, often tapping the group as a high-profile opening act — The Black Moods began building their audience the old-school way: by hitting the road. They toured heavily, promoting albums like their 2012 self-titled debut and 2016’s Medicine with gigs across the country. By the time “Bella Donna” hit the radio airwaves during the summer of 2018, The Black Moods’ fanbase had grown exponentially. The song became a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, paving the way for the band’s biggest shows to date.

    The Black Moods give it to us raw and honest. From their hearts and souls. They hit us square in the face with music that chills the spine and makes us remember great times of our past and thoughts of our future to come. Arizona boys as hot as the desert they thrive from. Bringing the heat with a pouring sweat and exileration that is contagious and keeps us wanting more. Peace my Bro’s. See ya New Years on our home turf. Can’t think of a better way to bring it in !!!

    Great choice. We just saw the Black Moods in Indianapolis last night. Hard hitting, raw, unapologetic Rock & Roll. Plus they love their fans. Josh, Jordan and Chico stuck around and chatted with us for a food half hour after the show.

      I am getting more excited as this tour gets nearer . It feels like a dream . Whitesnake is my all time favorite band in the world always !! But then I met the black moods band while living in Prescott AZ. The first time I saw them perform Josh was wearing a white button down shirt and black slacks and asked us if we liked the song they had just played . 2013 I think on Gurley St. Endearingly polite young men. I was froze by Chicos drumming. So good! Then the confusion ????? Who did I love better ? Which Band ? It’s a magical, fascinating , absolute tie. !!!!! And the two together ? ? I always questioned whether god loved me the way the bible described it but now I know he/she does. !!! I’m so blessed and grateful. Best wishes to both bands and the tour !!!!

    certainly like your website but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will definitely come back again

    The black moods have paid their dues in music by being honest, on time , polite , hardworking and true . They are good men who deserve all of the wonderful opportunities that are being presented to them . Hard work pays off and being a musician is grueling , backbreaking hard work . There is a world of rejection and hard knocks . I admire the black moods for their keep trying attitude and continually pushing forward . They embody raw talent and good hearts . Congratulations on your future successes ! Mary and Greg Hall. La Palma , Ca.
