Guitarist Jason Hook introduced his new band FLAT BLACK last year. The former FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist teamed up with a trio of young and talented musicians and signed with Fearless Records. Today, the band is thrilled to announce its debut album Dark Side of The Brain arrives on July 19. The album is also available with exclusive merch and vinyl.

The album was produced by Hook and Chris Collier (Korn), and recorded at both Hook's home studio and The Hideout.

The band has also shared the video for the latest single "SIDEWAYS". Watch it on KNAC.COM HERE.

FLAT BLACK go for the jugular, thanks to crackling riffs, a non-stop barrage of gritty grooves, thick rhythm, and choruses that invite plenty of singing along whether you are in a packed venue, your car, or in the shower. The track will send a high voltage currents of adrenaline coursing through your veins.

"It's a song about losing your temper," Hook says. "Whenever I felt my darker side gaining control in any given situation, I would say, 'I'm about to go sideways.' In those moments, it is key to let those feelings pass through you and refocus on moving forward."

As for the album as a whole, Hook is stoked to finally share it with fans, who have been patiently waiting for even more new songs! "Well, we're finally here," he states, with a laugh! "No more people hounding me about when the album will be available. I'm so excited to share these songs with the public. Dark Side of The Brain is personal, every lyric came from a real place."

The album artwork is also personal, as Hook designed it himself.

FLAT BLACK will be hitting the road in the summer and fall, supporting GODSMACK. All forthcoming FLAT BLACK tour dates are below.
