THE BLACK ARMADA
Heavy Groove Rock. This defines The Black Armada.
A sound forged with monstrous riff-driven guitars, laden with fuzz and bite. Thunderous Bonham-esque drums, meshed with heavy groove bass and sky-breaking vocals soaring beyond. They bring a modern Groove-Stoner Rock take together with heavy pillars of Sabb-Zepp backbone into the current music scene.
After a busy introduction to the Australian music scene with supports in the way of Earthless, multiple tour supports with The Tea Party, 1000mods (GR), John Garcia (Kyuss) and being the backing band for Nick Oliveri (Kyuss/QOTSA) around the country, The Black Armada have achieved a lot in a very short time.
The Black Armada have just finished recording a new group of killer tracks with first single 'Up and Down Under', featuring QOTSA's Nick Oliveri, aired on Kyuss World Radio to rave reviews.
With a new lineup featuring members of Transvaal Diamond Syndicate, Rinser, The Hunkz, Blue Savannah Underworld and Handful of Helmet, The Black Armada are ready to jump into the fray in 2023.

REVIEW + ACCLAIM
“The Black Armada are made of dense elements, tone and rhythm and yell. This is excellent, hard and heavy, the soundtrack to the stomping that everyone deserves at some point in their life.” THE UNDERGROUND STAGE
“Somewhere in the middle of the day I found myself standing smack in the middle of the Rock and Blues stages completely mesmerised by The Black Armada. I actually didn’t even get any notes down because I was so enthralled by this new band. They’ve definitely stepped into the rock scene with one goal in mind: bring nothing but pure, gobsmacking rock and roll.” MUSIC BEYOND HEADLINES
