Directions To See A Ghost

The sophomore release from The Black Angels is called Directions To See A Ghost, and very soon Light In The Attic will offer a chance to pre-order the CD and download the entire album one month prior to release. Along with the instant download, you will receive a free limited edition EP featuring unreleased tracks. Check all of that out at the link. A couple of new tracks have been in circulation recently, including "You On The Run" (@ Sonic Itch, Stereogum) and "Doves", which is linked below.
Black Angels are headed to Canada for the Beautiful Noise Concert Series before making their way across the pond for a string of dates, including the big All Tomorrow's Parties vs Pitchfork Festival on May 10th. I'd give just about anything to be able to attend that one, I mean check out this lineup. Black Lips, No Age, Hot Chip, Times New Viking, Jay Reatard, Wooden Shjips, Fuck Buttons, Black Angels...now that is friggin solid. See the rest of their tour dates at myspace.
By the way, my cover story on the Black Angels for Austin Music + Entertainment is available just about anywhere newspapers are sold in Austin, with photography by my good friend Mary Sledd, who is absolute dynamite with a camera. Previously: Black Angels live acoustic.
