US hard rock band Blacktop Mojo have released an official music video for “As The Light Fades” – a track totally unlike anything they’ve created before, to be followed by a full-length studio album, “Pollen”, on April 5th. “As The Light Fades” is a feel-good anthem and a passionate track that oozes with infectious energy of summer and young love.

Blacktop Mojo’s classic rock influences shine through with powerful guitar riffs, while their infamous ‘Southern grunge’ makes its mark in the vocals and twangy instrumentation.

Vocalist Matt James states: “As The Light Fades” is a nostalgic look at young infatuation that turns into life-long love, from running inside when the streetlights come on all the way to the last tender kiss shared before crossing into The Great Beyond.

Bassist Matt Curtis adds: “As The Light Fades” definitely had all the feel-good classic rock n’ roll vibes, a style we hadn’t really touched before in previous albums. We honestly couldn’t be happier with the result, especially after having Rob McNelly, who has played for Bob Segar add some guitar to it.

With inspirations ranging all the way from Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bill Withers, Stone Temple Pilots, to Bob Seger and Etta James, Blacktop Mojo’s music has elements of heavy rock, grunge, soul, blues, and a little splash of southern twang.

Make sure to catch Blacktop Mojo on tour from April to August, performing shows across the U.S. such as Richmond, Colorado Springs, and Pensacola.
