Black Heart Procession

The Black Heart Procession are hitting the road in support of their new album, Six, out October 6th on Temporary Residence.

Six is The Black Heart Procession's first album to be written and recorded simultaneously with a new album by Three Mile Pilot, the band that originally spawned Pinback and The Black Heart Procession. As both Three Mile Pilot and The Black Heart Procession now coexist for the first time ever, founding members, Pall Jenkins and Tobias Nathaniel, have steered The Black Heart Procession into a darker, more adventurous direction, with an increased focus on rhythm and a more wildly eclectic instrumental palette.

The Black Heart Procession mainstays, Pall Jenkins on vocals and guitar and Tobias Nathaniel on piano and guitar, will be joined by Matt Resovich (BHP, Rafter, The Album Leaf) on violin, Jovi Butts (Mr. Tube and The Flying Objects) on bass and Jason Hooper (Goodbye Blue Monday) on drums. The five-piece band will perform songs off of Six, plus many selections from The Black Heart Procession's back catalog.

The Black Heart Procession hits the road this fall with a tour that includes a pair of NYC-area stops. They play a Halloween night show at Maxwell's in Hoboken, and then a gig the next night at Bowery Ballroom (11/1). Bellini and The Mumlers, who separately open the first and last half of Black Heart Procession's tour, will both be at both shows. Tickets to the Maxwell's show go on sale Friday, August 7th at noon. Bowery tickets are on AmEx presale now; general sale starts Friday at noon.

Pinback also has an October tour lined up that hits NYC just one day before Halloween. Tickets for that Irving Plaza show are still on sale.

Speaking of Halloween in NYC, King Khan will be here too, as will Mount Eerie (and Lez Zeppelin).

A track of the new Black Heart Procession record is posted above. Check out a video for another song, "Witching Stone," with the album art, tracklist, and all tour dates, below...
