While we are waiting for Black Mountain to hit a couple of intimate, highly anticipated shows in L.A. and NYC at the end of the month, here Black Mountain go and release tour dates for a full slate of American tour dates that will see the band join forces with another creature of darkness, The Black Angels. The Black Keys, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Black Flag, Black Lips, Black Dice, and Black Kids are all currently unsigned for this tribute to your favorite lack of color. But, these two superb bands should be enough to satiate even the hungriest appetite for hate, night, and rock and roll. Or, maybe just the last one.
Set to begin in late October, the tour will hit-up some of the most iconic mid-size venues in the U.S., including The Fillmore, The El Rey, The 9:30 Club, The Showbox, Metro, and Bowery Ballroom. Yeah, they are even playing Orlando. We’re in shock, too.
Both bands release new albums on September 14th that they will be in full support of when they come to your major city of convenience, with The Black Angels offering Phosphene Dream and Black Mountain serving up Wilderness Heart. Facebook told me that Wilderness Heart was my Native American name. Weird.
Check out the complete slate of dates below and buy a ticket for something to look forward to. If The Shawshank Redemption taught me anything, it was that hope is a good thing.
