The Black Heart Procession offers new mini-album and tour

on September 08, 2010, 9:05am

The Black Heart Procession can be a handy band to be familiar with, if you aren’t already. For one, their name sound really intense and can make you look like a badass around non-music savvy people (kind of like School of Seven Bells). Just saying “I’m going to go see The Black Heart Procession (note: often shortened by fans to just ‘Black Heart’)” can raise your numerical rating one to two points in the eyes of the opposite sex. Secondly, if you ever find you hipster status called into question or find someone inferring that you are a poseur, drop The Black Heart Procession bomb on them. Chances are they will not be able to keep up with you in a Black Heart conversation because if they were a Black Heart Procession fan, you would know about it already. They are a devout and vocal bunch. Then ask yourself “Why am I hanging out with people who call me out on my muscial taste?”

A good introduction to the San Diego indie veterans might be their new mini-album, Blood Bunny/Black Rabbit. Why? Well, besides featuring three brand new songs, it also offers up collaborations with two mainstays of the college music scene, reggae icon Lee “Scratch” Perry and the artsy Eluvium. So yeah, you basically get it all: new songs and old ones, songs by just the band and songs that include a couple of your faves. Then you can check out the band in person as they open a few dates for The Books. By a few I mean the whole cross-country tour.

Tour dates are below and check out “Blank Page” from Blood Bunny/Black Rabbit, which is due out October 12th.
