Moving To Blackwater (Single)


The third single to be taken from 'Racecar is Racecar Backwards', Moving To Blackwater was released in August 2004. It was also the first single that Reuben had ever released in the wake of an album. Opinion was divided as to whether or not it was the right choice to follow Freddy Kreuger, some saying that the band should have released a more immediate single, and some arguing that it was a strong song that ably demonstrated another side of the band's diversity. It received only a few plays on radio, and even fewer showings on TV. In spite of this, it still managed to reach number 59 in the UK singles chart, only six places down from its predecessor. It was released on CD and 7" vinyl format, with a special alternative b-side on the vinyl copies.
