about Tearing The BlackBox
Tearing The BlackBox (TTBB) is an alternative indie band formed in 2022 by Canadian musician and producer Kelly Cook and Dutch musician and producer Frank Weyzig. Cook, formerly of the band Moev, and Weyzig, of Born For Bliss and Vaselyne, first met in 1989 while touring the United States with their respective bands, Moev and Clan of Xymox. Though they lost touch over the years, the two reconnected and decided to collaborate on new music.
Due to the distance between them, Cook based in Vancouver, Canada and Weyzig in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the band had to rely on sending audio files back and forth over the internet to work on their music. What started as a fun project quickly turned into a full-fledged album, set to release later in 2023. To build anticipation for the album, TTBB has so far released several EPs of which “Now” is their current Single…
TTBB’s music is defined by its innovative blend of alternative and indie sounds, characterized by its emotive and thought-provoking lyrics, intricate instrumentation, and dynamic production, drawing inspiration from a wide range of genres and influences. With Cook and Weyzig’s decades of experience in the music industry, they bring a wealth of knowledge and skill to the table, making Tearing The BlackBox a band to watch in the alternative indie scene.
