Back in black.
The New Black, not to be confused with the Strapping Young Lad album or the second half of the title of a popular Netflix show, is a German hard rock/heavy metal band on AFM Records. That’s all I really know about the band. According to their bio on AFM’s website, they’ve shared the stage with AC/DC, Black Label Society, and Alter Bridge. That’s, um, quite the list of bands. Apparently, the band also has “ballsy drums”. That sounds more like a horrific medical condition than a positive band description.
“Ballsy drums” sounds like a condition you get in a 50’s sex education video from cranking your shaft too much. Whelp, there’s only one way to find out if the drums are in fact ballsy. Put on your gloves and tighten your goggles. Here’s The New Black’s video for their song “Long Time Coming”.

1:32: If Navi looked like that, I think a lot more people would listen.
1:41: Song brought to you by a commercial for to join the Marines.
1:47: “HEY, LISTEN! OVER THERE! THERE, YA STUPID FUCK!”
