The Black Angels Drone Through America

Psychedelic rock is still alive in well deep in the heart of Texas. Taking their name from the classic Velvet Underground song “The Black Angel’s Death Song”, the Austin-based group The Black Angels are set to release their full-length album Passover on April 11 via Light In The Attic Records. They call their music “Native American Drone ‘N’ Roll”, which is a pretty accurate description of their trance-inducing sound.

While the band hasn’t been around too long (since May of 2004), their nonstop touring has helped them gain a strong following that stretches from Austin to the west coast. The group is now set for a month-long tour, which will run through the end of February, plus an appearance in March at SXSW.
