THE BLACK FEVER is a post-punk band based in Toronto, comprised of Shoe (vocals, guitar), Pat Bramm (bass, back-up vocals), and Dan Purpura (drums). The band’s music mixes guitar-based post-punk influences with lead bass lines and propulsive drums, while reflecting the band’s focus on melody and concise songwriting.
On August 26, 2022, the band will release its latest single, All To Myself. The single was self-recorded, produced, and mastered by the band. This is the band’s first single of 2022, and the band continues to work on new music.
Of the single, the band says:
“Sometimes, it’s easier to write a song about someone you care about, rather than express those words directly. Here’s hoping they get to hear this song on the radio, and realize that it’s about them. Unrequited love set to music.”
To date, the band has released three self-released albums: Midnight Century (2015), Romanticism (2010) and Revisionist (2012), a three song EP, A Little Help (2014), and a five song EP, Unarticulated Wants (2019). The band’s most recent single was Nowhere (Aug. 2021).
