Blackbutton Premieres New Single "AM Clouds PM Sun"

Boston rock trio, Blackbutton, thrashed the stage (figuratively and literally) with their distorted set of originals and a nearly indistinguishable cover of Nirvana's "Breed" last night during their Single Release Show at TT the Bear's in Cambridge. As part of the Stripper Series, a set of singles corresponding with 1960's stripper Polaroids, the band premiered a turbo boost of adrenaline via "AM Clouds PM Sun".

The guys plan to release at least five songs in the series according to drummer, Justin Emile, but like any creative process, the project depends on inspiration. "AM Clouds PM Sun" first premiered on Boston music blog, Vanyaland, the morning of the show and is an addition to Blackbutton's diverse musical portfolio.

Sign up for the Blackbutton mailing list to gain VIP access to new singles as they are released, and head to the band's Facebook page to download their first two singles in the Stripper Series, "Still Kids" and "Canopy" for free.
