Australian Tour February 2011
“Rather than adhering to type, Black Mountain now have a catalogue of songs that respect and rival their influences.” BBC
It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of Canadian psych-rock five piece, Black Mountain, to Australia this February. Last seen on our shores two years ago off the back of their critically acclaimed and immaculate sophomore record In The Future, the band are back with new album Wilderness Heart in tow.
Recorded in both Seattle and LA, Wilderness Heart is packed with succinct rock songs that pulse and pound with startling precision. It’s arguably the band’s tightest, most concentrated venture, but there’s still plenty of raw energy at work. As anyone who saw them on their last trip to Australia can attest, the combination of the band’s strong songwriting chops, exquisitely layered male / female harmonies, 70s psychedelia and stoner grooves with the unrefined excitement they produce in the live environment is, quite simply, spellbinding.
“Black Mountain have a way of writing songs that go to the places you hope they will without descending into cliche.” Mojo
