UK rock sensations South Of Salem will be exclusively premiering their brand new single Jet Black Eyes on Primordial Radio.
South Of Salem has been on a remarkable journey since their debut headline tour. With every show sold out across the UK and over 2000 tickets sold, the band’s success culminated in a spectacular performance at Inverness’ Monsterfest. However, South Of Salem shows no signs of slowing down. Today, they thrilled their fans by announcing their participation in Bloodstock 2024.
Furthermore, they are set to kick off the new year with a monumental album headline show at Bournemouth’s O2 Academy on 20th January. This will mark a significant milestone for the band as they become the first local group to headline the 1800-capacity venue. As a result, South Of Salem is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the most thrilling new rock groups in the country.
The first local band to headline the 1800-capacity venue, South Of Salem are swiftly becoming acclaimed as one of the country’s most exciting new rock groups around.

To hear the premiere, simply tune into Primordial Radio at 15:00 (GMT) with Dewsbury on Monday 15th January, 2024.
Forming in 2019, South Of Salem’s brief history is already impressive, building legions of fans even at this early stage. In their time, the band have supported WASP, Wednesday 13, and packed out sets at Bloodstock 2021 and Stonedead 2023. Even more impressive considering they first hit the stage in 2020, with their live career then immediately halted by the Covid pandemic.

Death Of The Party is set to raise the stakes even higher, delivering an explosive blend of hard rock that encompasses the essence of classic heavy metal, 80s sleaze, and horror. Drawing influences from bands like Murderdolls and Avenged Sevenfold, this album pushes boundaries and goes beyond expectations.
Produced by the Grammy-nominated Romesh Dodangoda, known for his work with Bring Me The Horizon and Twin Atlantic, Death Of The Party is a monumental record that captivates with its anthemic, dark, punchy, and powerful sound. The first single, ‘Left For Dead’, showcases the band’s metallic-edged floorfiller style (watch here), leaving no doubt that South Of Salem means business.
South Of Salem draws inspiration from a diverse range of rock legends such as Alice Cooper, Guns N’ Roses, Zakk Wylde, and Murderdolls, infusing their music with a unique twist of horror. Vocalist Joey’s passion for horror movies is evident through his extensive collection of over 2000 DVDs and VHSs. Additionally, he showcases his creativity by writing spooky children’s books, with four already published.
Guitarist Denis, a devoted fan of Zakk Wylde, has even had the opportunity to work as a roadie for the legendary musician. His love for vinyl is evident in his collection, with his most prized possession being a factory-sealed Type O Negative test-press of Origin Of The Feces, complete with a scratch and sniff peel-away sticker. South Of Salem is a band that takes their craft seriously and is here to make their mark in the world of rock.
