Blue Horizon is excited to announce that The Black Angels will head out on a winter tour in support of their latest record, Indigo Meadow. The tour begins on January 31st at Granada in Lawrence, KS and wraps up on March 1st at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX. Throughout most of the dates, the Austin- based quartet will be joined by psychedelic rock legend Roky Erickson. Full tour dates are below.

Recently, the band appeared on PBS’s renowned Austin City Limits, performing songs from Indigo Meadow. Additionally, the album has already been included on early best of 2013 lists such as Rough Trade and Waterloo Records. Upon Indigo Meadow’s release, iTunes selected the album as an Editors’ Choice. The Associated Press said, “Imagine tossing bands from the pantheon of American psychedelia like The Electric Prunes, Count Five, 13th Floor Elevators and The Seeds into your blender, adding a splash of Sabbath and a dollop of early Soundgarden or Mudhoney, and you’ve got Austin’s The Black Angels.On Indigo Meadow, these Texans keep this elixir swirling. Their fourth album is modern psychedelia, true to the earlier form, with all the weird, hypnotic, fuzzy guitar sounds and dirgelike keyboards, only really well produced.” Relix hailed, “Hyperinventive when it counts, the Angels aren’t just mimicking a late ’60s garage sound – they’re bending, stretching and molding it in their own image.”

The Black Angels’ (Christian Bland – guitar, drone machine/organ; Alex Maas – vocals, bass, organ, drone machine; Stephanie Bailey – drums, percussion; Kyle Hunt – keyboards, percussion, bass, guitar; Jake Garcia – guitar, bass) most revelatory collection thus far, Indigo Meadow marks the Austin, Texas- based band’s fourth full-length release, following 2010’s acclaimed Phosphene Dream. Once again The Black Angels prove themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock, simultaneously exalting the genre’s kaleidoscopic past as they thrust it ever further into the future.
