A muscular American post-hardcore/hard rock trio with an impressive pedigree, San Francisco's Black Map is the creation of Dredg guitarist Mark Engles, Far drummer Chris Robyn, and Trophy Fire vocalist/guitarist Ben Flanagan.
Formed in 2014 while the group members' respective bands were on hiatus, the trio issued its debut EP, Driver, shortly after forming. Black Map's full-length Minus Head Records debut, ...And We Explode, dropped just eight months later, and drew favorable reviews and comparisons to bands like A Perfect Circle, Deftones, and Chevelle. The trio moved to eOne for its sophomore long-player, In Droves, which arrived in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
