The Black Angels are a highly touted psychedelic rock band from Austin, Texas who formed in May 2004. Their name derives from the Velvet Underground song 'The Black Angel's Death Song. The group's debut LP Passover was well received by the underground independent rock community and was noted for its dark tones and lyrical content.
A review of the Black Angels album Passover described them as 'Walking in the shadows cast by Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized mastermind Jason Pierce' and compared them to The Warlocks and Black Mountain, also invoking 'dirges' reminiscent of both The Velvet Underground and the 13th Floor Elevators.
The Black Angels tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Feb 2008.
