Hear Corey Taylor on new Flat Black (Ex-FFDP) “Nothing To Some”

blf
Flat Black is ex-Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook's next endeavor and they just launched their new single "Nothing To Some" that features a guest cameo from Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor. It'll be included on Flat Black's eventual debut album, which was produced by Hook and Chris Collier (Korn, Prong).

Hook launched Flat Black in 2023 and has released the songs "Halo," "It's Your Lack of Respect" and "Justice Will Be Done."

"'Nothing To Some' features the brutal and unapologetic Corey Taylor. This guy is a bottomless pit of creativity and delivered a vocal that perfectly matched what I wanted for this track. The guitar solo is unique on the album in the way that I let it rip with no rhythm guitars underneath. Now that I'm in a one-guitar band, I could strip it down and let it be as raw as Corey is on the vocal track. I remember hammering out live takes with Rob pounding away next to me. It was inspiring." - Jason Hook

The band will be out with Godsmack and Nothing More this summer, including Inkcarceration Festival Saturday July 20.

Former FFDP Jason Hook launches new band 'Flat Black' with 2 beasty songs & FFDP Cover (video)

fb2023

FLAT BLACK's offerings include "It's Your Lack of Respect" and "Halo." Both will appear on the upcoming debut 'Flat Black' album, title and release date TBA. Joining Hook in this newly launched band are vocalist Wes Horton, bassist Nick Diltz and drummer Rob Pierce.

Jason Hook offers his thoughts on each of the 2 news songs...
"I didn't want to play it safe with the first release. Sure, there are other songs on the album that are more geared towards radio, but to me, 'It's Your Lack of Respect' makes a statement. It's unapologetically defiant, which is how I feel as a songwriter and we feel as band in today's seemingly homogenized rock landscape."

"I love 'Halo' because the song sets a dark, sinister mood. Its charm is all about the contrast between the piano part and the guitar riff, not to mention the big chorus and guitar solo — to me, that's the Flat Black sound."
