News: The Black Angels set to release new record ‘Indigo Meadow’
The Black Angels have announced the forthcoming release of their eagerly anticipated new album ‘Indigo Meadow’ come March 25th on Pod.
Indigo Meadow is heralded by the high-powered single “Don’t Play With Guns.” Penned just days before last year’s tragic mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, the song is streaming now exclusively via The Black Angels’ newly relented web site.
“Our music has always tried to shed light on issues that may be hard to deal with or confront,” says singer/multi-instrumentalist Alex Maas. “If people think they can ignore the issues they are wrong. Don’t play with guns, don’t touch a hot stove, don’t give your child a poisonous snake, don’t turn the cheek when artists are willing to discuss these issues.
“In ‘Don’t Play With Guns’ the antagonist is a female who has the power of persuasion over a man,” he continues. “Substitute the female antagonist with a Nation, substitute the manipulated man with yourself. Heed the warning: Don’t Play With Guns.”
Indigo Meadow marks the Austin, Texas-based band’s fourth full-length release, following 2010’s acclaimed Phosphene Dream. Once again The Black Angels prove themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock, simultaneously exalting the genre’s kaleidoscopic past as they thrust it further into the future.
‘Indigo Meadow’ is out March 25th on Pod.
