Photos: Black Mountain’s European Tour

Friend to Black Mountain, photographer Andy K. Bond hopped on tour with the band last month. A set of photos at his blog contains STUNNING images of the band in the some of greatest cities in Europe.  Many more photos are at his site here. Below are my personal faves.


Jeremy Schmidt, handsome as ever, as a turquoise chameleon!


Black Mountain ruled, and shows were packed throughout the tour.


Amber Webber and Joshua Wells dans la rue!


Okay, this picture made me clasp my hands in joy.  This photo is of Black Mountain’s trusted sound engineer, Remco, feeding some new Italian friends he met. Have you ever seen cows so beautiful in your entire life?

Oh, BLACK MOUNTAIN, Where Do We Begin: UK/European Tour, Bastards of Light “News”, and Conan Redux!

In a desert-state-of-mind, Black Mountain were in top form at Coachella. Was that an even funkier version of Druganaut? No Bright Lights? Or was the desert sun taking us on a trip of our own.

Regardless, the real news here is: a hop, skip and a jump after they ruled at Coachella, Black Mountain begin their UK and European tour tomorrow, including an appearance at the ATP vs. Pitchfork showdown in Camber Sands this upcoming weekend. Among the many other festivals they will be involved in on this leg of their world tour is an appearance on the Mojo Stage of The Great Escape Festival. We are told that Black Mountain fans in the UK and Europe are restlessly awaiting many of these shows, this being the maximal-psych outfit’s first visit to the European continent since their new album “In The Future” was released in January. So get your tickets now. For a comprehensive list of tour dates, please click HERE.

ALSO, the Bastards of Light EP is now available digitally through Itunes:

Originally released as a tour-only 12-inch in the Fall of 2007, the Bastards of Light EP is currently out of print in any physical format. The two songs on the EP, “Bastards of Light” and “Thirteen Walls”, were both recorded in early 2007, during the same sessions that produced “In The Future”. In the UK and Europe, these two songs are being digitally released through Itunes slightly later (05/20/08), with the song “Stormy High” from the “In The Future” full-length being added to them to form what is altogether called the “Stormy High” single.

FINALLY, if you missed it the first time, do not fret. Black Mountain’s live performance of “Stormy High” on the Conan O’Brien show will be aired again on May 26, on your local NBC affiliate in the United States and Canada. And, yes, famed ring announcer Michael Buffer will once again be introducing Black Mountain to the masses. (Because, you know, it’s a re-run.)
