BIOGRAPHY

The Black Knots are a Rock n Roll blood lust, Acid Sex Napalm driven bomb from out of nowhere! Huntington, West Virginia bred, this machine has been a scene legend that was born in 2002!  A sea of shows and road worn and weary patrons have made a ton of bad decisions in their wake, broken relationships and been banned from their own home town for merely being what they are; The absolute embodiment of everything that rock n roll is supposed to be!!!!  Fun, irresponsible, tragic and a total fucking train wreck of a good time!!!   To understand the band you need to understand the atmosphere.  A college town that is most famous for a plane crash that killed the entire football team, overwhelming heroin use, almost no music scene except for a hand full of venues and a staggering unemployment rate,  but the party shall prevail!  From nothing will always produce something!  And the Rose Mary's baby born in these hills was the Black Knots!!!!  

 

Started in 2002 by Jerry Lee Queen, after a lot of different members came and went in the early days.  Greg Gilbert would join the band and that is when the band definitively got its 2nd running engine!  With Jerry Lee in the front, with an epic rasp and cavalier nature ala David Lee Roth & Lemmy!  Greg was the Randy Rhodes of another generation!  Together bringing together the music they loved really became the back bone of the sound, which is punk, Metal Rock n Roll!!!!  Much in the vein of bands that inspired them Zeke, Dwarves, Hellacopters, Gluecifer, Nashville Pussy, The Black Knots have always carried on the tradition of The Stooges in that there will be no apologies given!  Buckle up, or get out because it’s not going to slow down, get sweet or be anything different than what it is!  Rock that way it should be!!! Pissed off, fun, reckless and in the Fast Lane!        

 

The First album release was "Hellbent to Kick it out" released on the Black Knots label (Oil River Records in 2007) followed by Guitarmageddon in 2009 on (Dead Beat Records)  Tornado Ride records in Medina Italy did all the Vinyl for that album.  Since then the Black Knots have recorded but not release new material to the world till now!!!!   Announcing Now the Black Knots new album "CHEMICAL CITY RIOT" Will be released on RFL records in 2017!  Let’s have a party, the future is unwritten
