BlackBeatBlue puts a new spin on the classic Seattle Alternative Rock sound. Heavy influences from the 1990's, this band has a big sound for being a 3-piece.

The song writing is unique with guitar leads and bass riffs that will take you to another place. They're also great guys to hang out with!

BlackBeatBlue is a 3 piece Rock Band from the Pacific Northwest, WA with a Hard Rock Sound that can be described as Raw, Grungy, and a bit Moody. "Definitely a Seattle Sound, one I haven't heard before." says Jack Endino, producer of their first album and legendary recording engineer & musician.

It’s not often that bands from small towns get approached by world class, accomplished producers about putting an album together but after catching BlackBeatBlue at one of their shows he agreed to record the band. Endino's list of accomplishments are long, impressive and varied - Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, L7, Babes In Toyland, Bruce Dickenson, Spiderbait, Blue Cheer and Witchburn just to name a few - the band was all for working with Endino.

BlackBeatBlue put the finishing touches on their full length album “Completely Different Animal" at world renown Soundhouse Recording in mid 2012. With titles like 'Dirty Angel', 'Wander', ‘Sense’ and ‘Complicated’, an Albert Camus’ quote comes to mind: “A guilty conscious needs to confess. A work of art is a confession”. The new disc has that declaration of guilt feel. Like holding a mirror to life, Endino and the band strove for a raw, edgy, live-based feel for the record. The end result is a disc that has that classic vibe from the region (and from what you might expect from an Endino-produced record) but also does an excellent job of bridging old to contemporary rock: spaced out guitars, metal driven bass riffs alongside heavy rock drumming fused throughout with a precise urgency.

BlackBeatBlue’s goals for the immediate future include continuing to play live gigs in the greater Seattle area with an eye to reaching out beyond the region.
