We're less than two weeks out from the worldwide release of The Black Angels self-titled debut EP. The Austin-based six piece has had massive European exposure and acclaim in little over a year and half. Though the band takes their name from a Velvet Underground track, they sound much like a modern-day The Doors. The extending moans of vocalist Alex Mass and the organ playing of Jennifer Raines make the comparison fair. With a demo track entitled "Syd Barrett Blues", it's really clear to see the psychedelic connections the band has received.

The band played Austin's KVRX radio last year broadening their local fanbase. In addition, The Black Angels have been raised under the loving hand of BBC's Zane Lowe, who has generously spinned their music on BBC Radio. The group has wild backgrounds which surely worked as foundation for the haunting sounds on record.

The band has a few dates coming up with the most buzzed band of 2005, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!

10/12/05 - Dallas, TX @ Gypsy Tea Room w/ CYHSY!
10/13/05 - Dallas, TX @ The Double-Wide
10/16/05 - San Antonio, TX @ Sanctuary

10/31/05 - Raleigh, NC @ King's Barcade w/ Glissade
