The Black Angels Announce Fall Tour In Support Of New Album, Phosphene Dream

By Nancy Woo

In support of their latest album Phosphene Dream, out now off Blue Horizon Ventures, psychedelic rockers The Black Angels will be touring the U.S. this fall, starting out in their home state of Texas and ending in Tennessee. Tickets become available August 5th, so check back on their website in a couple of days.

Out of this world, man.

The New York Times recently caught the band headlining 4Knots Festival, noting the Black Angels "play psychedelic rock as if the 1960s never ended, and they are absolute masters of it."

Yeah, speaking of the 60s, remember the Beatles' infamous last rooftop performance? Well, put on your time travel hat and enjoy The Black Angels' modern version of the rooftop approach with this live session of the song "Haunting at 1300 McKinley" off the new album:



Phosphene Dream was produced and mixed by Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother) in Los Angeles, a fresh step in a new direction, differing from the homey Austin studios that delivered their first two records. This new one presents a fresh take on the neo-Psychedelic movement they've been at the forefront of for years.
