It has been almost two years since everyone’s favorite rock quintet from Vancouver, British Columbia, have gone on a full North American tour. And if your pent-up demand for maximal prog-psych-folk-rock for the heart, soul and mind is not enough, then know this: BLACK MOUNTAIN will be previewing their upcoming full-length record on the tour. The new album is called “In The Future”, it is epic, and it is coming out on Jagjaguwar in January of 2008.
The band is also carrying with them a very special tour-only 12-inch release featuring two new songs, “Bastards of Light” and “Thirteen Walls”, that you can’t get anywhere else and that won’t be on “In The Future”. You have to go see Black Mountain (see tour dates below) to get the 12-inch. And included in this 12-inch is a digital coupon that will become active on November 13, providing a preview of “In The Future”. It is our ham-fisted way of giving the first introduction of the new album to fans of the band who came out to see them perform live this fall.
(And fans of Black Mountain in Europe and the UK: don’t fret. Black Mountain tour-dates in your neck of the woods will be announced very shortly, to occur in November and December, and to end at the Portishead-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties event at Butlins Minehead.)
Supporting most of the North American tour-dates below are the Cave Singers, good friends of the band from Seattle, who are releasing their excellent debut called “Invitation Songs” on Matador on September 25.
All tour dates with The Cave Singers, unless mentioned otherwise.
