Published Jun 23, 2010Texas-based psych rockers the Black Angels have announced the release date for their third album, as well as the record label that record will come out on. And while the former is exciting news for today's rocka rollers, it's the latter that will have greying record collector types all hot and bothered.
The band will drop Phosphene Dream on September 14 on Blue Horizon Records, an influential British blues label from the '60s and early '70s recently started up again by music bigwigs Richard Gottehrer of the Orchard and Seymour Stein of Sire Records. The Black Angels are the first singing to the label in this go-around; back in the day Blue Horizon was noteworthy for releases from the likes of, amongst others, Fleetwood Mac and Aynsley Dunbar.
Phosphene Dream follows up the Black Angels' 2008 album Directions to See a Ghost. It marks the first time the band have recorded away from their hometown of Austin; they recorded the album over a six-month period in Los Angeles.
Can't wait until September to get a buzz on? Head here to listen to "Bad Vibrations," the first song off the album.
