Jet Black Berries arise from the dead with a new single, God with a Gun, a bullet that debuts at #5 on Clear Channel’s charts.
It’s a most unusual rock and roll resurrection story. Back in the late 80’s the Jet Black Berries gained notoriety as one of the groups that contributed to the infamous “Return of the Living Dead” soundtrack along with the Cramps, the Damned and the legendary Roky Erickson. The band released 3 albums in the mid to late 80’s on Restless and Enigma Records and were the darlings of what was then known as psychedelic alternative rock. Their records charted high on CMJ charts. The band broke up in 1989.....but zombies are hard to kill.........
In 2010 the Jet Black Berries have arisen from the crypt with young lead singer, Johnny Cummings at the helm. Johnny brings to the other four Jet Black Berries veterans amazing lead vocal, piano, guitar and front man skills. It only took one gig in upstate NY to land the band these accolades from one of Rochester New York’s top music critics, “My Best of 2009 Critic’s Pick…What a great band. It's timeless with relevant and reminiscent components throughout. Ominous, foreboding, drum-driven hypnosis with guitar-driven psychosis." Frank De Blase, Music Critic, City Newspaper
The reunited Jet Black Berries fed off the energy from their live shows and quickly moved into the recording studio to cut new material. The people at Bug Music heard the band and Bug Digital quickly reached an agreement with the band to distribute their new full length CD, Postmodern Ghosts, due to be released on October 12th of 2010. Garry Velletri, Senior Vice President, Bug Music, Inc. was effusive in describing the band’s new CD, “These new Jet Black Berries songs sound like instant classics”.
The first single from the new CD, “God with a Gun” was just this week added to Clear Channel Radio’s elite “New Artist to Watch” list where it debuted at #5 on their Rock Charts! It is currently being played on commercial stations from Seattle to Cape Cod.
The Jet Black Berries powerful contemporary psychedelic rock sound featuring something old and something new is back and their own personal “Return from the Living Dead” is under way. Expect to hear a lot more from the band in the near future.
