Black Taxi Announce Tour Dates & Album News

 

“We can’t help but challenge ourselves as musicians, and I think that shows. But we’re always asking the question ‘Is it a good song’,” muses Bill Mayo, guitarist/vocalist for Brooklyn’s BLACK TAXI. With the upcoming release of their second album WE DON’T KNOW ANY BETTER on January 14, 2012, these four hyper-talented but synergistically-connected musicians haven’t just challenged themselves – they’ve succeeded as well. “Believe it or not, it’s easy to make complicated music. The real challenge is making simple songs that nobody has thought of yet.”

2009′s debut Things of That Nature saw the band break out of the crowded, often times faceless, NYC scene and create a whole scene unto themselves. Selling out venues like NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and Mercury Lounge as well as equal-sized venues in cities like Boston and New Orleans, the band’s live shows prove to be a major part of their existence. Secret Sound Shop calls the band, “a must see live act… Expect to catch front man Ezra Huleatt daintily darting around the stage (like a gymnast on acid) or pounding enthusiastically on his drum to the chirpy riffs of guitarist Bill Mayo, the funky bass lines of Krisana Soponpong and the precise driving rhythms of Jason Holmes.” Joonbug enthuses, “BLACK TAXI are the party. Take one curly-haired, vibrant dance-aholic, a technical guitar genius, an endearingly superb bassist, and a rhythmic God, Chris Martin look-alike drummer, and there you have it. One hell of a party.”
