Blakfish were a mathcore band, also described as 'death pop' by the NME, The band from Birmingham, England formed in the year 2000 aftermeeting and becoming friends at school, contrary to their frequent fabricated claims that they all met in juvenile prison.

The band were perhaps best known for their live shows and relentless touring schedule, which led to them being labeled by many as one of thehardest working bands in the country. In 2007 Blakfish became the full-time job of the members, and in 2008 they went on to play over 200shows in over 10 countries topping that in 2009 with another 200 shows in 16 countries. They played shows with, amongst others, Hell Is ForHeroes (on their farewell tour) and Tubelord. In 2010 they achieved a support slot on the Biffy Clyro European tour, which ultimately lead to thedemise of the band, which they announced on their myspace blog.

The band split up mid-tour following the departure of guitarist and vocalist Sam Manville. They had been scheduled to play shows in Tokyo andOsaka later in the year with 65daysofstatic. Plans were also shelved to record their 2nd album, again in Seattle with Chris Common. Only 7instrumental demos were recorded in Lewes with producer Nick Kinnish, never to be released. « hide
