After already announcing their HYPA HYPA EUROPEAN TOUR 2022 German infamous metalcore force ESKIMO CALLBOY just confirmed that BLIND CHANNEL – Finland’s hottest metal export – will join all their shows as a special guest. Starting in early January both bands will tour throughout Europe together until February. The first shows are already sold out – so better be quick and get your ticket now.
ESKIMO CALLBOY comment: “Never was it more exciting for us to be back on tour again. Finally we can see you all again, finally we can celebrate our new songs and our new freedom. And we are more than happy to take our Finnish brothers with us! Together with „Blind Channel“ and „One Morning Left“ we‘re gonna make you move till your blood boils. This tour you will never forget!”
BLIND CHANNEL state: “We’re super excited to join Eskimo Callboy on their EU dates next year. We know there’s a lot of people waiting to see us live and finally we can bring #VIOLENTPOPREVOLUTION to where it belongs. This tour will be something special and we can’t wait for it!”
Having recently signed a worldwide deal with Century Media and entering the single charts all over the globe with the single “Dark Side” – BLIND CHANNEL, rising new metal stars from Finland – release their equally beguiling follow-up single, “Balboa”!
“Balboa’s” powerful Eurovision predecessor “Dark Side”, with more than 40 million streams to date, set the bar incredibly high, but “Balboa” is easily an equivalent triumph, striking another hammer blow to further establish Blind Channel’s very own brand of ‘Violent-Pop.’
The band comments:
”Balboa is a reminder of who we are – who we have always been. It’s a violent pop showoff about getting back up again and again, no matter how hard you’ve been hit. It’s us sticking to our vision without compromise. Underdogs are a dangerous species. This is a call to arms to every hardworking dreamer out there, and the soundtrack of our career so far. We keep coming back.”
The release of the new single is also accompanied by a spectacular music video. Filmed in a boxing gym, it lives up to the promise of title.
Finland’s hottest new metal export BLIND CHANNEL have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records.
