From the ashes of the long running and revered 16Volt, Black December was founded in the summer of 2014 to bring a heavy, melodic, raw, and emotion filled approach to modern hard electro! Working with Co-Producer Marc Jordan (The Cult, Die Antwoord, Velvet Revolver) the band wrapped up production of their debut release titled “vol.1” in, ironically, December of 2014 and got together with world renowned Mastering Engineer Howie Weinberg (Metallica, Muse, Nirvana) to put the finishing touches on the album in the Winter of 2015.
In March of 2015 Black December signed a global three-album deal with Metropolis Records. Shortly after signing, Black December was invited to play select shows with KMFDM to kick off their 2015 plans. Black December live is Eric Powell (16Volt) - Vocals, Guitar, Keith Hirschman (Razorwire Halo) – Drums, Bobby “Crowbob” Thomas (Proven) - Lead Guitar & Vocals, Kimber Parrish – Bass & Vocals, and Erik Gustafson - Guitars, Synths, Vocals
