BLACK MOUNTAIN return to the UK and Europe, perform at ATP

It’s been nearly three years since Canadian quintet Black Mountain’s eponymous debut – “a modern heavy psych masterpiece”, according to Mojo magazine. Fans included The Flaming Lips, J Mascis and Mudhoney, the latter inviting British Columbia’s finest to join them at All Tomorrow’s Parties in April 2006; Black Mountain will return to the festival in December 2007 at the invitation of Nightmare Before Christmas curators Portishead.

Immediately preceding their 2007 ATP appearance, Black Mountain will be performing throughout Europe and the UK (see tour dates below). They will be performing many songs from their upcoming second full-length called “In The Future”, which comes out on CD, LP, and as a limited edition double CD on Jagjaguwar on January 21, 2008. If, as Plan B magazine noted of the first LP, “Every song could be an album to itself, by a band with lesser ideas and the ability to express them”, then “In The Future” sees those distinctive individual strands woven into a seamless studio tapestry that’s a quantum leap, both sonically and compositionally, from its predecessor.

Stay tuned for additional Black Mountain announcements regarding extensive touring throughout 2008, as plans are in the works to hit up every nook and cranny of this wondrous globe.
