ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Black Mountain Announce ‘IV’ Out April 1st

f1f95118-9644-4bcc-8b61-22bbdca27004

 

The rock canon has many anti-heroes, Black Mountain being the latest. In the past, Can’s Tago Mago established that the only rule in rock and roll is that there are no rules. Pink Floyd’s prodigious output in the 70s showed us that architecture can be cool, while delinquent proto-metalers Black Sabbath demonstrated that you can make a lot from not that much.  Now Black Mountain teach us that you don’t have to be afraid of the past to move bravely into the future, defining what it is to be a classic rock band in the new millennium. Today, they announce IV, an unapologetically ambitious record made by a group of musicians who are at the peak of their powers.

 

The group’s sense of rediscovery as a creative whole is tangible throughout. Stephen McBean, Jeremy Schmidt, Amber Webber, and Joshua Wells were joined in the studio by spiritually attuned bassist and veteran purveyor of the riff, Arjan Miranda (formerly of S.T.R.E.E.T.S, Children, and The Family Band) whose roots, heart, and soul are connected to the same soil and cement that Black Mountain were borne from. Recording was primarily done in close collaboration with producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Wolves In The Throne Room, Marissa Nadler) at his trusted Avast! facility in Seattle. IV will be released on April 1st via Jagjaguwar,

 

Today, the band also announced a large tour in support of IV. Don’t miss a chance to catch this powerful band live.

The Cave Singers – “No Witch” out February 22!

We are pleased as punch for the announcement of The Cave Singers third LP and Jagjaguwar debut, No Witch. It will be released on February 22, 2011 in the US and February 28 in the UK.

cavesingers.11183v3

At first, we were ardent admirers of The Cave Singers with the release of Invitation Songs. Welcome Joy brought us closer to the group upon their collaboration with Amber Webber of Black Mountain and Lightning Dust.

And now, we’d like to think that the third time is far beyond a charm. We are proud to call The Cave Singers family and bring No Witch to you. MORE AFTER THE JUMP
