Texas-based group, The Black Angels make their debut visit to New Zealand this month.

The Black Angels have spearheaded the neo-psychdelic movement for more than ten years and are the co-founders of the largest psychadelic music festival in the world - The Austin Psych Festival. The group have toured with other artists such as The Black Keys, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Queens of the Stone Age.

The band are renowned for their gigantic live sets and mesmerising projections. The group visit the country en route to the British festival Glastonbury and will also be celebrating the release of their fourth critically acclaimed album, Indigo Meadow.

The Black Angels have received widespread praise for their musical capability:

“Creating some of the most incendiary, reverb-laden and drone-orientated rock and roll in recent years” -  Drowned In Sound

"Finding a sweet spot between the old (13th Floor Elevators) and the not-so old (Spacemen 3, and the Jesus & Mary Chain)" - Rolling Stone Magazine

“[The Black Angels] play psychedelic rock as if the 1960s never ended, and they are absolute masters of it.” - New York Times (Live Review)
