It’s been a couple years since we had news of a new full length from Austin based psych rockers The Black Angels, and today the news comes in that they do indeed have a new album on the way. The follow up to Directions To See A Ghost will be hitting store shelves this fall (September 14) and is titled Phosphene Dream.
We have heard just one song from the new album, but it’s the same drugged out and washed out sound and rivals some of our favorite songs from their debut album. Paired with the new release news is the news that Phosphene Dream will be the first release on a resurrected label Blue Horizon Records.
Founded in the late 1960′s, the legendary label was best known for discovering acts like Fleetwood Mac and Chickenshack. Richard Gottehrer and Seymour Stein founded the label and have built successful businesses developing artists such as Madonna, Talking Heads, Blondie, The Go-Go’s, Depeche Mode, and The Pretenders. Today, Blue Horizon aims to introduce global music fans to emerging artists across a wide spectrum of genres.
And just in case you thought you couldn’t get tripped out by an album cover more than their last record, it looks like this one might have it beat.
