The Black Angels New Zealand Shows Announced

The Black Angels New Zealand Shows Announced

Friday 31st May, 2013 8:00AM

Just when we'd resigned ourselves to being passed over once again, The Black Angels sneak up and announce two New Zealand shows next month on the back of their Australian tour announced in April. Operating out of Austin, Texas, they take their name from Velvet Underground song 'The Black Angel's Death Song' and have been helping to satisfy our psych-rock needs for nearly a decade. They are currently touring their fourth studio album Indigo Meadow released last month but we're hoping for a good selection of their releases for their first New Zealand outing. Here are the tour details followed by a clip from each of their albums....

Rhythm Group Entertainment, Under the Radar and 95bFM are excited to be bringing Texan based contemporary psychedelic rock band THE BLACK ANGELS to New Zealand audiences for the first time.

Known for their monumental live sets with hypnotizing projections, the band will play two shows on their way to Glastonbury Festival in the UK. A New York Times live review said THE BLACK ANGELS “play psychedelic rock as if the 1960s never ended, and they are absolute masters of it.”

THE BLACK ANGELS have been at the forefront of the neo-psychedelic movement for over a decade and are co-founders of the biggest psychedelic music festival in the world, The Austin Psych Festival. The band has also toured with the likes of The Black Keys, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Ravonettes and The Horrors.

The band’s first visit to New Zealand comes hot off the heels of their fourth critically acclaimed album, INDIGO MEADOW.

Do not miss the opportunity to see these undisputed pioneers of contemporary psychedelic rock, THE BLACK ANGELS.

Tickets available now from Real Groovy, RPM, and Slow Boat Records.
