It is with great regret that Black Phantom announce the departure from the group of Luca Belbruno, guitarist and one of the founding bandmembers since 2014.

"Unfortunately, personal, work and family duties no longer allow Luca to guarantee to the band his 100% commitment to the group" says Andrea Tito, bassist and leader of Black Phantom. "We understand the situation and obviously accept, albeit reluctantly, his decision to leave the band. We will soon announce the name of the new guitarist, which we have already identified, with the aim of completing the new album by the end of the year and returning to play live very soon."

In the meantime, the studio activities of Black Phantom did not stop: 3 new unreleased songs for the soundtracks of American independent horror movies got recorded and delivered in July to their respective production companies. The 3 tracks are "SAMMY THE ELF" for "He Knows" by Steven Morris, "BEAST ON THE LOOSE" for "Night of the Axe" by Shawn Wright and "LISTEN TO THE VOICE" for "Hillsborough Road" by Erick Kaslov and Larry Sands.

All these films will be released from this autumn onward and promotional video clips are also planned for the Black Phantom songs, which will also be included in the band's new album, due out in 2022 again via the label PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS.
