The Black Angels will release a new double album, Wilderness of Mirrors, on September 16 via Partisan Records. It's their first in five years, and the first single is the brooding, storming "El Jardin." Watch the video for that below.

The gorgeously shot "El Jardin" video was directed by Vanessa Pia and stars The Walking Dead's Austin Amelio as well as his son Lev. Vanessa says Black Angels frontman Alex Maas came up with the video's dystopian sci-fi concept about "a future where Mother Nature is dead because we killed her, and the only way to experience her is through virtual reality- an already relatable feeling, as most of the world lives viscerally through social media. Who knows where we will be 100 years from now." She adds, "This project has been a dream in the making and a massive labor of love and could have only been possible with such a dedicated and talented crew, especially my dear friend and cinematographer Andy Hoffman. For me as a director, it’s an honor to deliver this project on 35mm print and to have been chosen to make something for my favorite band."

The Black Angels are on a West Coast tour currently, including dates opening for Primus, and have just announced fall shows that include a NYC stop at Brooklyn Steel on October 17. Tickets for all fall tour dates are on sale now. Check out The Black Angels full itinerary below.
