The Black Angels – Austin’s psych rock masters – have confirmed details for their upcoming album, Death Song, out April 21st. This will be the five-piece’s first full-length release in four years, and their debut for Partisan Records.
Listen below to the album’s opening track “Currency”.
Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, “the music on Death Song serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety and unease”. Recorded between Seattle and Austin, Death Song features production from Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes, The Shins).
The band will tour extensively behind Death Song, including a headline set at one of the first-ever shows at new NYC venue Brooklyn Steel on May 2nd. Full itinerary below for “The Death March Tour”, which begins in Nashville. The band will be supported by A Place to Bury Strangers.
