More Info

The Black Angels: Not since David Bowie has a musician (or in this case, a group of musicians) been so influenced by the work of the Velvet Underground than Austin psych band, The Black Angels. While the band's name and logo are direct homages to the pioneering experimental rock band, The Black Angels are blazing their own musical trail with incredible tour dates and driving albums like their latest, Phosphene Dream. The album's success has led to 2011 tour dates at some of the world's biggest music festivals; a far cry from the Texas bars they used to play in.

The Black Angels was born in the diverse musical scene of Austin, Texas circa 2004. Bonded by a mutual love of Nico and the Velvet Underground, The Black Angels began posting music on their MySpace page and contributed to the compilation album, Psychedelica Vol. 1. Tour dates at SXSW and Austin City Limits followed the successful release of their debut album, Passover, as did supporting performances for influences The Black Keys and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. The Black Angels' follow-up, Directions to See a Ghost, became acclaimed from critics at Rolling Stone, Blender, The Times, and other reputable periodicals.

The Black Angels' latest album, Phosphene Dream, features a more streamlined sound that has also been well received by critics and audiences. The album has allowed for numerous tour dates in 2011, including performances at Fuji Rock, Festival Woodstower, the Electric Picnic Festival, and the Saint Nolff Festival, just to name a few. The Black Angels' final performance for the year is on September 13, so be sure to buy your tickets for their 2011 tour dates soon.
