“Come Naked” is a unique and balanced blend of 70s Rock, 90s Grunge, Electronic influences and Folk ballads. Black Market Aftermath's debut album is a solid bridge between Classic Rock and Contemporary Experimentation.
Black Market Aftermath sprouted from the mind of Francesco D’Andrea, professional Film and TV Composer in the daytime, guitarist and songwriter at night.
The band is currently touring UK with gigs spread through May, June, July, August 2017 in some of London and UK's best venues.
Before founding his current project with Black Market Aftermath, Francesco D’Andrea has worked on TV series, promo music and movie soundtracks through which his music has been featured in many award winning shows and movies, such as “Dr. House”, “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mad Men”, “Spaghetti Story”, “Glee”, “How I met Your Mother” and many more.
For those who might be wondering, the boxer punching hard the other one in the album cover is Francesco's grandfather, who was a professional and very good boxer, and to whom this album is dedicated.
What Music Press said about Black Market Aftermath:
"Come Naked might be to most unique and authentic rock album we have heard all year" [Ear to The Ground Mag]
"BMA is a band with great talent and varied sound, and with no doubt has the chops to make you want to jump up and down in the puddle."
"Black Market Aftermath is one of the most ambitious and eclectic musical projects that has surfaced in the past year." [Brave Worlds Music]
“The album is like a kid with ADHD. It drips with raw emotion. “Sharp Thin Blade” is a garage rocker that wouldn’t be out of place on a Jack White record. ‘Come Naked’ is very good – and occasionally it’s better than that.” [MaximumVolumeMusic.com]
"'Sharp Thin Blade' is a solid song with great instrumentals and infectious vocals. Reminded me a bit of a more indie rock version of Wolfmother."
[Bob Lugowe, worked with world acts like Baroness, Mastodon, Red Fang]
