Modern rockers The Black Moods have released a new track, Sugar along with a new video. The guitar driven track is off their forthcoming third studio album which is set to release later this year.  We can’t wait for the upcoming release. The Black Moods is the trio of The trio—vocalist/guitarist Josh Kennedy, drummer Chico Diaz, and bassist Jordan Hoffman, Kennedy comments about the song,

“‘Sugar’ is definitely one of the sexiest songs we’ve written. The tempo and the groove are a sensual foundation for the melody and lyrics. Lyrically, I think it paints a picture of passion and danger. The lyric, ‘Don’t forget I’m kinda crazy, cinematic, a little magic’ lends its hand to a bit of the dramatic. I feel it sets the scene for the song.”

The track features a wild west themed video directed by Michael Levine (Skillet, Peyton Parrish), and was filmed at Rawhide Western Town in Chandler, AZ and shares the story of a classic bank heist with a twist.
