The Black Angels Confirm New Tour Dates
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BLACK ANGELS ANNOUNCE SPRING HEADLINE TOUR
Blue Horizon is pleased to announce that The Black Angels will be heading out on a headlining tour this spring in support of their latest release, Phosphene Dream. The tour will kick off at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans, LA, on March 31st and conclude with a home state stop in Dallas, TX, at The Loft on May 21st. In between these dates, they will also be performing at their third annual Austin Psych Fest, which will take place April 29-May 1st. It is no secret that the band loves to tour, and their stunning live shows illustrate their dedication. NPR attended a performance at Seattle's Triple Door late last year and proclaimed, "The group tore the roof off and let its razor blade leads and wailing organ-synth rain down. Leader Alex Maas barked with a ferociousness that sunk into the skin." The Black Angels will also spend the month of February touring throughout Europe, further proving they have no plans to slow down anytime soon.
Phosphene Dream marks a huge leap forward for The Black Angels. It was produced and mixed by Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother) in Los Angeles, a far stretch from the cozy Austin studios that delivered their first two records. This new one presents a fresh take on the neo-Psychedelic movement they've been at the forefront of for years.
The Black Angels spent the past Fall on the road with Black Mountain in support of this new release, which Rolling Stone praised, claiming: "there are smartly layered riffs and echo-slathered melodies, and the Angels brighten up on tracks like 'Telephone,' a 119-second nugget that would have fit in on an early Kinks album." Filter agreed, calling Phosphene Dream"face-melting," while the BBC declared, "rock album of the year, if anyone's counting."
