Produced by Dusten Boles

(Make Me Famous, Peyton Parish, Tommy Vext, A Killer’s Confession)

Under Black Sky shares, “For Bon Jovi’s 40th anniversary, we wanted to pay homage with our rendition of ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’. We wish them well and can’t wait to see them back ‘bigger and better’ than ever, doing what they do best! After all, so many of today’s rock bands wouldn’t exist today without pioneers like Bon Jovi that helped pave the way for so many.” –

Beloved Glam icons Jon Bon Jovi and Rickie Sambora were originally inspired to write “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page”. The rock duo created this legendary worldwide hit that now, nearly 40 years later, still stands the test of time.

Under Black Sky proudly dare to modernize this timeless track in celebration of good music loved by all.

About Under Black Sky:

In the twilight of 2022, a transformative evolution took place within the musical realms as Under Black Sky emerged, shedding its previous identity as Farewell to Fear. The metamorphosis was not arbitrary but a culmination of years spent honing their craft through recording and touring across North America. Under the banner of Farewell to Fear, they graced stages of major rock festivals like Welcome to Rockville, Inkcarceration Fest, WJRR’s Earth Day Birthday, and Blue Ridge Rock Fest. The band also toured extensively alongside eminent acts Fozzy, Like A Storm, Palisades, Jared James Nichols, and FLAW.

However, the universe threw an unexpected curveball in the form of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of succumbing to the challenges, the band seized this moment of introspection and emerged with a renewed perspective. Out of the shadows of uncertainty, Under Black Sky was born—a musical phoenix rising from the ashes of adversity. Their collective vision crystallized into a common goal: to create extraordinary music that resonates with the soul and to share their sonic journey with the world.

The debut of Under Black Sky is a testament to their artistic rebirth. Each song is a meticulously crafted masterpiece, featuring unforgettable choruses that linger in the mind, mesmerizing riffs that captivate the senses, and a potent shot of adrenaline coursing through the veins of their sonic landscape. Under Black Sky is not just a band; it’s a manifestation of resilience, creativity, and a profound desire to connect with audiences on a visceral level. In a world painted by the hues of uncertainty, Under Black Sky stands as a beacon of musical brilliance, ready to illuminate the darkness with their powerful and evocative sound.

Under Black Sky has released three singles in 2023. Most recently, “Hell to Pay” – the electrifying fourth single from the dynamic rock band Under Black Sky – premiered January 26, 2024 . With a modern and active rock sound, the track delivers a powerful blend of gritty guitars, pulsating rhythms, and intense vocals. The lyrics dive into themes of resilience, defiance, and facing the consequences head-on. As the band unleashes a sonic assault, “Hell to Pay” takes listeners on a thrilling journey through a landscape of raw energy and unapologetic attitude. This single showcases Under Black Sky’s prowess in the contemporary rock scene, making it a must-listen for fans of high-octane, adrenaline-pumping music. Get ready to crank up the volume and embrace the sonic storm brought to you by Under Black Sky.
