Black Before Red


"Black Before Red craft their own hermetically sealed world of rhythmic subtlety" ~ Pitchfork


Black Before Red was formed in 2004 by childhood friends Marc Ferrino and Marc Dickey. Known in Austin as a "band's band," the lineup has gradually come to include members from other popular local groups, including Brian Cassidy of Okkervil River, Kevin Schneider of Shearwater, and Brent Baldwin of The Normans.

BBR's debut full-length album, "Belgrave to Kings Circle" (i eat records, 2007) quickly charted at #23 on the CMJ music chart, with its lead single "Underneath Gold" hailed as a "hermetically sealed world of rhythmic subtlety" by Pitchfork.
