Austin-based psych-droners The Black Angels will embark upon a nationwide tour from early April through the end of May in support of their upcoming fourth album Indigo Meadow, due out April 2 on Blue Horizon.
That tour includes a headlining slot at their own Sixth Annual Austin Psych Fest, which will run April 26 - 28, and will also feature appearances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (appearing at the Rialto Theatre on May 30), Deerhunter, Tinariwen, Warpaint, Clinic and dozens more, some yet to be announced.
Although it hasn't been announced on Club Congress' website yet, The Black Angels' tour also includes a scheduled stop at the downtown hotel on May 22. Wall of Death is slated to open the show.
An email sent out today by the band's publicist includes a sneak peek at Indigo Meadow's first single, "Don't Play With Guns," which according to the press release was "penned just days before last year’s mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado."
