BLACK MOUNTAIN (CAN) announce Australian Tour 2016

After seven years absence, Popfrenzy are delighted to announce that Canadian rock transformers, Black Mountain are returning to Australia this October. Uniting longhaired music nerds and hemp soaked psych dabblers, Black Mountain are sure to put on a spellbinding performance, armed with their latest genre-blending epic, IV.

After relocating to sunnier West Coast climates, and taking time for alternate projects (like scoring the film Year Zero in 2012) the five piece returned to recognition with IV. It is the product of close collaborations with Sunn O))), Wolves In The Throne Room, Marissa Nadler and producer Randall Dunn and has already received enthusiastic positive response from press and patient fans.

Black Mountain channels Sabbath’s harshness via Floyd’s soundscapes in IV. Harnessing the fundamentals of 70’s hard rock, laced with fuzz and psychedelics. They demand attention with gargantuan bass riffs thanks to master bassist, Arjan Miranda and dueling guitarist Stephen McBean. Bringing celestial tones and lusty harmonies so effortlessly is vocalist Amber Webber, who proves her vocal dexterity throughout IV. The backbone via percussion is drummer, Joshua Wells, with finishing touches to Black Mountain’s pastel drone clan, from the multi-coloured synth wizard Jeremy Schmidt.

IV and the colossal back catalogue of Black Mountain is sure to expand minds sonically and emotionally of all curious lucid dreamers and diehards that pilgrimage to shows. Expect engulfing aural fuzz, deep bass notes throbbing in your chest cavity and a profoundly enchanting show.
