Formed by vocalist Noah Clark and drummer Danny Treybourne, Black Phoenix combines bass-driven hard rock with sexually charged lyrics to create a sound all their own. Hailing from London, England, Clark and Treybourne felt the lure of rock-n-roll at a very young age, quickly recruiting guitarist Nick Saunders and bassist Dominic Price—who reportedly had never played a note before joining the band. Still in school, the quartet spent years performing in local clubs before they were even of drinking age.
As the band matured so did their sound and they soon caught the ear of S.G. Records, who quickly signed the young musicians and issued their debut album, Awakening. Within the first year of release, Awakening went platinum twice, spawned many chart topping singles and led the band on their first world tour. Ascension followed two years later to lackluster sales.
While Ascension never achieved the same success as Awakening, the group didn’t allow slow sales to bring them down. Returning to the studio, they released their third and best-selling album, Immortal. Immortal went platinum its first week of release, then on to become the most successful album if its century.
Tragedy struck when in the middle of a worldwide headlining tour, drummer Danny Treybourne died from a combination of drugs and alcohol. While the band continued touring, finishing out its scheduled dates, they never recovered from the loss of one of its founding members. At the close of the tour, the band went their separate ways.
Ten years later, Black Phoenix reunited with a four-man lineup that consisted of Clark on vocals and rhythm guitar, Saunders on lead guitar, Price on bass, and relative unknown, Alex Morgan on drums. After signing back on with S.G. records, the band returned to the studio to record their fourth album, Resurrection.
