With new album Death Song arriving next week (April 21), Austin’s premiere space rock outfit the Black Angels are previewing their first studio album in four years with the new track “Half Believing.” Check it out, below, as well as previously released videos for “Currency” and “I’d Kill For Her.” Plus, read an interview with frontman Alex Maas at Texas Monthly in which he describes the “moody” and “emotional” song as “about a relationship between two people, could be about the relationship between you and the government, it could be a relationship between our nation and other nations.… It kind of speaks to this notion that we don’t know where anything is headed, and that the future is in question… There’s a thread throughout this record about this open-eyed lack of trust in policy and relationships. And I think that speaks on a much larger level about how we perceive our president, or whoever else, and documenting through our eyes how we feel about the world.”

Go HERE to view the band’s upcoming tour itinerary, which kicks off April 26 in Nashville and will weave through the South (including a stop at BLURT enclave Asheville, NC), up the East Coast, through the Midwest, and then back home before heading to Europe. (They’ll tackle the West Coast in October.)
