DOWNLOAD: The Black Angels - "Telephone" (MP3)

The Black Angels

The Black Angels and Black Mountain should sue Danzig for defamation. The pair of retro leaning bands will hit the road for a string of dates during the exact same period that the Misfits mainman will head out for his Blackest of The Black tour. That tour doesn't even have one band with Black in their title!

Ah well, you won't see Danzig, Withered, or any of the other reported "blackest" folk at either Bowery Ballroom (11/3) or at the recently-added show happening at MHOW (11/4), but you will see Black Angels and Black Mountain. Tickets are now on sale for both shows.

In other Black news, The Black Angels made quite the impression on Letterman & Co in Their recent appearance on the show:

The Black Angels played the Late Show With David Letterman last night (9/8), and it's possible that no late-night host has ever been more enthusiastic about a band. The Austin psych-rockers trotted out "Telephone" from their new album, Phosphene Dream, and if you listen closely..., you'll hear Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra segue into the closing credits with its own take on "Telephone." They give it a house-band sheen that evokes mortgages and alimony payments more than psychotropic abandonment, but it's good exposure, nonetheless. -[Onion AV Club]
Video from the recent TV appearance is below.

The Black Angels' new album, Phosphene Dream, is out now (only $5.99 at Facebook) and in addition to their recent appearances on Letterman and at ATP NY, the Austin band played a private, invite/contest-winner-only show at Angel Orensanz Foundation in NYC on 9/7. More pictures and the setlist from that show, Big Ass Lens videos from that show, videos from a recent Gothamist House session, the Letterman video and all dates below...
