Just in time for the oncoming season of the Austin Psych Festival comes the news of new music from The Black Angels. There's a new album on the way, called Indigo Meadow, due out on Apr. 2. It dives into some heady topics, including the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado from last year, although the song ironically was written in the days before the shooting. Which makes seem all that much more relevant -- the song is called "Don't Play With Guns."
"Our music has always tried to shed light on issues that may be hard to deal with or confront. If people think they can ignore the issues, they are wrong. Don't play with guns, don't touch a hot stove, don't give your child a poisonous snake, don't turn the cheek when artists are willing to discuss these issues," said singer/guitarist Alex Maas.
Check out "Don't Play With Guns" above, they'll also be at the Austin Psych Fest in April.
