BLACK WATER COUNTY have released their new single, THE ONLY LIFE WORTH LIVING, their first new music in almost three years and the opening chapter in a series of singles over the summer and the autumn leading to the release of their third studio album of the same name towards the end of the year. The single is a frantic and thrilling juggernaut of joyous guitars and frenetic drums, a chorus that will remain long in the memory and rhythms that simply demand movement from anyone who gets in its path. To accompany the single comes a video splashed with irreverence and humour. Watch here:

The Only Life Worth Living is about keeping an open mind, opening doors and moving forward,” explain the band, “The song summarises our feelings coming out of a hard couple of years for both the band and the industry as a whole. To us, it means full ‘balls-to-the-wall’ energy because life is too short.

As times have become tougher our writing has reflected some of these struggles and we’ve found ourselves focusing on what really matters to us. This track was initially conceptualized pre-covid but was refined over many video calls during lockdown, forcing us to think outside our normal writing process. Because of this, we think that it has grown into a track that longs to be shouted from the rooftops and, now that we’re back out on the road, we’re so thrilled to be performing again to our audience, knowing that they’re stoked to be back out in the wild too.”

The Only Life Worth Living was recorded with their close friend and long-term producer Lewis Johns at The Ranch in Southampton. “He’s once again worked his magic,” say the band with palpable gratitude, “to create a track that we couldn’t be more proud of.”
