Portuguese all-female metal band BLACK WIDOWS released their third single and music video ‘Schizo’ from their upcoming second studio album Among the Brave Ones which is set to be released on October 21st 2022 via Finnish Inverse Records.
Vocalist/guitarist Rute Fevereiro comments: “Schizo was chosen to be our third single. It’s a more complex song that honestly represents well the darkest side of our album. This song is all about hypocrisy, the need of showing positive thinking and smiles regardless of what you’re going through, to the extend of worsening our mental health. This song is specially focused on someone I used to know who is described in these lyrics. The music is the perfect marriage with the words professed. There are lots of clowns in the real world, showing smily faces and yet they feel miserable. I’m sure you all know someone like this.”
“Black Orchid” marks the return of the band BLACK WIDOWS, which made history in Portugal as the first all-female metal band in their country. While the Widows’ impact was already notable when it hit in the late ’90s, this single shows an outstanding comeback with unshakable strength. Feeling like part of the resilients who fight for Music and Art, the Black Widows entitled their new album “Among the Brave Ones” , and will release it on October 21st 2022. Inverse Records has embraced this great return of Black Widows, marked by a sound worthy only of the brave ones.
Vocalist Rute Fevereiro comments: “I’m so thrilled about “Black Orchid” single. We overcame the storms of the past years, and this song tells it all. The verse “for nobody learns from scaping fears” sums it up. My experience of the past years, returning with this band with new amazing musicians is the given prove of that resilience. I believe that this is the best comeback I could have with Black Widows and am so excited to present you all with this powerful song.”
