Los Angeles hard rock act Blacklist Union have signed a management deal with Doug Goldstein and When Pigs Fly Entertainment. Goldstein, who famously took on Guns N’ Roses in 1991 and Blind Melon, amongst others, will guide Blacklist Union through the next phase of their career.
The band has also brought in Alison “MetalBabe” Cohen to fill the role of Creative Director and Blacklist Union mainstay, Tony West, had this to say about the new relationship, “It’s great to finally have someone that delivers and the controversy doesn’t overshadow the music.” And per Cohen’s participation, “I’m super excited to be working with her.”
Doug Goldstein: “Back to Momo is the best rock record I’ve heard since “Appetite For Destruction” and remarked that “Tony West is the hardest working rock star that I have ever known.”
Blacklist Union has also completed work on their new single, “Alive N Well Smack in the Middle of Hell.” Produced by Chris Johnson, the song has a positive message and is about surviving amongst the madness and not letting the sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll kill you. No matter what, you will be okay and make it through. The single will be released on 11 January 2015.
A video for the track has been shot and was directed and produced by Matt Zane of Society 1. The band is really going to push the envelope with this high quality production video and showcase taboo and voodoo at its finest.
“Alive N Well Smack in the Middle of Hell” will be featured on the upcoming album, Back To Momo, which is due to be released on 24 April 2015.
