The Black Angels Announce 2011 North America Headlining Tour…

.…and we say “Thank you.” No, really, we do. A little reverb here, a little tambourine shaking there. Good times, my friend.

Once again, that black-light, acid trip special we love and know as  The Black Angels are about to hit the road, flexing their music muscles as headliners on the heels of their watershed 2010 release “Phosphene Dream”. As third albums go, “Phosphene Dream”– which took the band out of their Austin, TX comfort zone- produced a tighter and, oddly, brighter palette on The Black Angels’ psych-rock penchant for fuzz and drone. With an automatic (and possibly required by law) stop at the Austin Psych Fest in April-May, the tour kicks off in March in New Orleans, LA taking them across the US, a few dates above the border (Canada) and brings them home to Texas in May. Supporting slots will be filled by Suuns and Sleepy Sun .

You know the drill, boys and girls: turn on, tune in, drop out.
