After the release of their very successful self-titled album Beyond The Black, which was released in January 2023 the band now shares the brand new piano version of the song ‘Wide Awake‘. The piano version of ‘Wide Awake‘ is the perfect song to start the pre-Christmas time and gets you in the right mood. Their highly-anticipated Dancing In The Dark tour starts in April 2024. All tour dates are listed below.

Jennifer Haben comments:
“The piano version of ‘Wide Awake’ is something very special, because the song’s creation process began with piano and vocals. I love that this pure, almost naked version, as it originally was, can now be heard by everyone. The song couldn’t feel more personal to me.”

German Symphonic Metal ascending stars BEYOND THE BLACK can already look back across a stratospherically successful career, despite their youthful years. Upon release, their 2015 debut album hit like a bomb in their home country. Songs Of Love And Death besieged the German Top 15 for weeks, which led to the band being awarded the Metal Hammer Award for “Best Debut” in 2015. Its successor Lost In Forever (2016) entered the German charts at #4 and paved the way for a huge tour throughout Germany and across countries like the UK, Russia, and Japan. Since the band’s live debut in 2014, they have played some of the world’s biggest Metal festivals like Wacken Open Air (several times) and have toured as support to heavyweights such as AEROSMITH, KORN, SCORPIONS, SAXON and WITHIN TEMPTATION. During the campaign for their third record Heart Of the Hurricane(2018), BEYOND THE BLACK landed their first-ever European headline tour, which took them across 10 countries, with most dates selling out.

Before they’d even finished the Heart Of the Hurricane touring cycle, BEYOND THE BLACKhad already gone back to the studio to write and record album number four. The result was Horizons, released in June 2020, which entered the German album charts at #3 (CH #6, AT #16, BE #53) marking the band’s most successful album release to date.

Now, two years later, BEYOND THE BLACK are back to launch a new chapter. Following the release of recently highly acclaimed tracks ‘Reincarnation‘, ‘Is There Anybody Out There‘, ‘Winter Is Coming’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’, the band released their new, fifth studio album – the self-titled Beyond the Black on January 13th, 2023!
