The Black Doves deliver the kind of huge, anthemic rock music that you'd expect from Texas while delicately balancing crunch, and crescendo, incorporating memorable melodies and masterful lyrics.
In October of 2018, they released the single "Somewhat Different", the long-awaited follow up to their freshman debut album Moments of Clarity (2008).
In early 2018 they entered Fifty 50 Studios, under the helm of engineer and co-producer Josh Franklin. There, Lead vocalist Steve Wilson, and drummer Brent Matthews, began recording the foundations of their sophomore album entitled Embracing Reality (2018). Recruiting the assistance of friends Matt Novesky (Blue October) on bass, and Marshal Dutton (Hinder) on lead guitar, they have created the perfect storm; resulting in a hurricane of sound beneath the powerful wings of Wilson's vocals and Matthews' thunderous rhythm.
