In Sickness And Health
THIS IS A DIGITAL ONLY RELEASE, NOT A CD
In Sickness and Health is a digital-only EP. The first 300 orders come with a limited-edition, numbered 18x24'' poster designed by Danny Black and silk screened by Crosshair Silkscreen. On the back of the poster, is a download code for the new album— If you want INSTANT access to the EP, visit the Amazon or iTunes links.
The Blacks alchemical balance of orchestral punk, rootsy psychedelia and gut bucket snarl conjures many reference points, but remains uniquely theirs.
One of the truly original and exciting bands to emerge out of the late 90's Chicago, The Blacks burned bright for two albums (1998's Dolly Horrorshow and 2000's Just Like Home) then flamed out under their own volatility. After a decade of life's detours and dead ends, and after a buoyant reunion show at the Bloodshot Records 15th Anniversary Hideout Block Party in the fall of 2009, the stars aligned, drinks were poured---but not too many, and the record that was never supposed to happen happened. It only took ten years. From frank summations of a lost decade to soaring expressions of defiance and resilience, In Sickness and Health shows that The Blacks have lived enough to be weary, but weariness need not breed submission.
