New York Hard Rockers BLACK WATER RISING Release New Single “Hail Mary”

Music Video Premiering via Ghost Cult Magazine


Hard rock veterans Black Water Rising have released a new song, titled “Hail Mary”, along with a music video! Preceded by their song “Jokes On You” from last year, the music video for the new track is premiering today exclusively via Ghost Cult Magazine.

“Hail Mary” is the fourth single from the band’s upcoming album, due out later this year. It also features original guitarist John Fattoruso, who rejoined BWR in late 2019. The video was once again directed by Tom Flynn (Lamb Of God, I Prevail). The new material promises to be more melodic, yet still as riff-heavy as BWR’s previous albums – featuring hooks and catchy choruses to pull you in, all while retaining a musical identity of its own.

Commenting on the new video, drummer Mike Meselsohn shares, “It was great working with Tom (director) again on this new video. Although it’s strictly a performance video, he was able to capture the live energy of the band while still creating a visually stunning compliment to the song!”

BLACK WATER RISING is a collection of soul-baring, angst-ridden, riff-heavy material that is proudly anchored in the foundations of traditional hard rock songwriting. Giant guitar-driven monster riffs served up on a bed of crushing grooves with soaring melodic vocals and big hooks. Basically, NO FRILLS RIFF ROCK!

Lyrically the message is socially and politically driven by the dark times we live in. With darkness seemingly growing by the day, BLACK WATER RISING is a name that fits this band like a glove. The philosophy of BWR is simple, they are not looking to reinvent the wheel, they just want to give it a much-needed alignment in these musically stale times.

The band’s discography includes the self-titled ‘Black Water Rising’ (2010), an album that achieved the number one slot on Amazon’s Hard rock chart upon release, ‘Pissed and Driven’ (2013), an honest, barebones rock album that climbed rock/metal charts, and their third full album, ‘Electrified’ (2017), with its first single charting on Billboard’s Indicator Chart.

Black Water Rising are:

Rob Traynor – Vocals/Guitar

Mike Meselsohn – Drums

Oddie McLaughlin – Bass

John Fattoruso – Guitar
