The Canadian power trio Black Feelings, aka the group which features two former members of Montreals Les Angles Morts (drummer Owain Lawson and guitarist Kyle Fostner) and, as the issued press release notes, has a “penchant for combining a variety of influences to conjure up a sound that is both retro and vitally fresh at the same time,” has announced the release of its debut self-titled EP. The eight-track effort sports an October 13th release date (via Alien8 Recordings), a pretty nifty covered designed by ex-Aids Wolf guitarist Chris Taylor, and the engineering talents of Mark Lawson, whos credits include Arcade Fire, Beirut, and Final Fantasy.
The band will support the release with a yet-to-be-announced North American tour. They will also make an appearance at this year’s Pop Montreal.
