MORE ON THE BLACK CLOUDS:
The Black Clouds are an independent American rock band from central New Jersey. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Dan Matthews, guitarist Neil Hayes, bassist Gary Moses, and drummer Cory King, The Black Clouds have rooted themselves in the DIY ethos their formation in late 2004. Self-produced, recorded and funded, the band’s constant motivation has been solely for the love of creating and performing unadulterated hard rock.
The Black Clouds made their debut in 2008 with the release of Wishing Well, followed by the 2012 release of their second record, Better Days. The band became veterans of the road, touring the continental US multiple times in support of both albums.

Reuniting with producer Jack Endino, the album was recorded at the Foo Fighters’ Studio 606 in Los Angeles before making its way to the Soundhouse in Seattle for mixing and mastering. After All features vocals from Mark Arm (Mudhoney) and guitar lines from Endino himself.
