, , ,

Singer ERIC WAGNER , formerly of TROUBLE and currently of THE SKULL, brings his unique and legendary voice to the next BLACKFINGER album, When Colors Fade Away. Now based in Pittsburgh, PA, Eric has a new BLACKFINGER lineup including another familiar name in doom circles, guitarist Terry Weston (DREAM DEATH and PENANCE). M-Theory Audio is pleased to have released the album on September 15th on CD, limited edition colored vinyl and digital . Featuring photos from Matt Bluejay and graphic design by Al Oaks , When Colors Fade Away is a striking and artistic package with a full color 12-page CD booklet and a 4-page vinyl insert.

Eric Wagner explains:

“Colors were a common theme throughout the first record… I think it was a reference for life, or maybe it was hope … What happens when colors start to fade or you feel like all hope is lost ? I think there comes a time in everyone’s life when you need to confront your dark side in order to get to the light . When I saw the photographs of the old abandoned funeral home by Matt Bluejay, I thought it would make the perfect album cover for When Colors Fade Away, and the start of the journey to feel good about oneself again .”

Recently BLACKFINGER performed at Cleveland’s Agora Theatre as part of a live show captured for the forthcoming fictional film, Death Metal . Watch for more live show announcements , as well as audio samples coming soon. Now they released the video for Afternow about Eric has the following to say:

“I think ‘Afternow’ is about wondering why things are the way they are when they don’t really need to be. Maybe if we could only catch a glimpse of where we came from, it might be enough to change the future. (Wishful, I’m afraid.)”
