Come to McBean country......
Is Stephen McBean, to quote P. Diddy, "preserving his sexy"? Stephen McBean and Pink Mountaintops are currently touring the EU on the heels of the recent release of the new album Outside Love (out now on Jagjaguwar). A month after those dates, which include the damnit-everyone-awesome-is-playing-this ATP festival in Minehead, the also-Black Mountain-er will be back on his native continent, ready to hit the road for a string of US dates including a pair in NYC: The Bell House on June 5 (tickets here) and Mercury Lounge on June 6th (tickets here).
Quest For Fire and their psyche-fuzz-rock will do the honors supporting McBean & Co, drawing from their upcoming (6/9) self-titled LP for Tee Pee Records. Made up of ex-members of The Deadly Snakes and Cursed (!), Chad Ross (guitar, vocals) and Mike Maxymuik (drums) will also pull double duty serving as members of Pink Mountaintops on the trek. Noice!
Check out new tracks from both Pink Mountaintops and Quest For Fire's latest efforts, available above, and the videos for "While We Were Dreaming" by Pink Mountaintops and "Ive Been Trying To Leave" by Quest For Fire, along with all dates, below....
