Black Angels announce new LP and 2013 tour (dates, stream)

Black Angels

Austin’s fuzzed-out Black Angels are set to release their fourth album, Indigo Meadow, on April 2. That’s the album art above and you can stream the album’s zeitgeist-y single “Don’t Play with Guns” below.

The Black Angels will be heading out on a two-month tour right after the album’s release, including a stop in NYC on April 8 at Webster Hall. Elephant Stone and Allah-Las will open and tickets go on AmEx presale on Wednesday (1/23) at noon with the regular on-sale happening on Friday (1/25) at noon.

Openers Elephant Stone is fronted by Rishi Dir who has spent time in The Black Angels touring unit and you can probably expect him to play sitar on a few Angels songs while they’re out together. Elephant Stone’s new self-titled album is out February 5 on the Reverberation Appreciation Society, the label run by Austin Psych Fest (which is run by THe Black Angels). Elephant Stone will be at SXSW in Austin before the Black Angels tour and additional tour dates are listed below.

Speaking of Austin Psych Fest, The Black Angels are headlining this year’s event which happens April 26 -28 at Carson Creek Ranch.
