Austin's The Black Angels will release new album Death Song on April 21. It's the first album in four years and their first for Partisan Records and, while not a concept album per se, the specter of 2016 looms over the record. Phil Ek (The Shins, Built to Spill) produced. Listen to first single "Currency" below.

The band will be touring this spring with A Place to Bury Strangers, and the NYC stop will be at soon-to-open Brooklyn Steel on May 2. Tickets are on sale now. All tour dates are listed below.
