Black Mountain gears up for North American tour

on April 27, 2010, 2:15pm

Every so often, you’ll hear of a band releasing a long-awaited album and realize you had forgotten about them completely. Though Black Mountain don’t fall into this category with me personally, the Canadian outfit has hardly been the strike while the iron is hot kind of group, waiting nearly three years between its first two records and another 2 1/2 years since then. Basically enough time from the buzz of its last album to fade and return to its core fans, with an awesome album that will start the cycle all over again.

And though its followup to 2008’s In The Future does not yet have a release date or a name, Black Mountain is doing the sensible thing by going on the road to test some tracks and reacquaint the casual fans with their psych-blues-rock. The tour will focus on major Canadian cities, but a trio of American venues will also get to hear new Black Mountain songs before the rest of the world.
