In a faded photo, the sun blares in the background onto a woman standing on a grassy area wearing a jean jacket and jeans. Behind her is a person in a white hooded suit, their facial features blacked out. They are reaching toward the girl.About As The Light Fades:

“As The Light Fades” is a nostalgic look at young infatuation that turns into life-long love, from running inside when the streetlights come on all the way to the last tender kiss shared before crossing into The Great Beyond.” -Matt James, lead vocals for Blacktop Mojo

“As The Light Fades” definitely had all the feel good classic rock n’ roll vibes, a style we hadn’t really touched before in previous albums. We honestly couldn’t be happier with the result, especially after having Rob McNelly, who has played for Bob Segar add some guitar to it.” – Matt Curtis, bassist for Blacktop Mojo

About Blacktop Mojo:

The band sits on a red couch in dim lights with a green wall behind them. On the wall is an image of red dice and men wearing old suits.

Described as a mix of Soundgarden and Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blacktop Mojo incorporates heavy, sludgy, rock mixed with sultry blues. Formed in late 2012 in the small town of Palestine, Texas by vocalist Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, Blacktop Mojo has coined the term “Texas Grunge” to describe their one-of-a-kind sound.

A unique blend of sludgy grooves, classic rock guitar riffs, and southern metal shredding sets Blacktop Mojo somewhere between dirty, heavy rock and roll mixed with sensual and carnal blues. Drawing on a multitude of genres and influences such as Alice In Chains, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Tool, Bill Withers, Stone Temple Pilots, Bob Seger, to Etta James, Blacktop Mojo combines styles of the past with a modern edge for a totally unique sound that can only be experienced through listening.

After their debut album, “I Am” in 2014, the band stayed around Texas to record another album in 2017, “Burn The Ships”, which caused the guys to quit their day jobs and move into a small house together in Palestine, TX. Since then, the band has kept a relentless recording and touring schedule, filled with boundless creativity that has allowed them to create songs to reach the top 40 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Rock Chart.
