The Black Angels Reveal 2011 Tour Dates

Austin-based psych-rockers The Black Angels have announced a North American tour this spring in continued support of their album ‘Phosphene Dream.’ Beginning March 31 in New Orleans, the fuzz-drone masters will play almost 35 dates in the US and Canada, with their Austin Psych Fest smack in the middle. Suuns will open for them during the first half of the tour, while Sleepy Sun will join them on most of the remaining dates.

Austin Psych Fest is the popular psychedelic festival that The Black Angels started in 2008. Since our last reporting of the initial lineup, more bands have been confirmed. These include Roky Erickson, Indian Jewelry, Beaches, Black Hollies, Lumerians, The Soft Moon, Young Prisms, The Quarter After, Woodsman, Tjutjana, Lower Heaven, Quest For Fire, The Meek, The Diamond Center, The Sky Drops and Holy Wave.
