Their debut full-length album, ...And We Explode (iTunes) was released last October, and the band has already toured as an opener for Chevelle late last year. The trio of musicians who comprise Black Map bring with them serious credentials, as all three have come from other successful Bay Area bands. Guitarist, Mark Engles, hails from the critically acclaimed dredg. Vocalist and bassist, Ben Flanagan, toured and recorded extensively with The Trophy Fire. And last but not least, drummer Chris Robyn may be best known for his stick-work with Sac-fave, Far.
