THE HAIR SONG
Black Mountain release the second single from their much anticipated forthcoming album Wilderness Heart on 11th October. Its west-coast groove and soaring harmonies showing off an altogether more accessible side to the band; ’The Hair Song’ brings the band’s songwriting skills into sharp focus. A joyous and uplifting track, (’Let your laws come undone, Don’t suffer your crimes, Let the love in your heart take control") - this is the embodiment of what NME described as ’pumping fresh blood into vintage sounds’.
Wilderness Heart is released on September 13th and the band will be undertaking a full European tour around this with their biggest London show to date: Shepherds Bush Empire on October 7th with The Black Angels.
To celebrate their co-headline gig Black Mountain and The Black Angels are giving away a special MP3 to all Advance tickets buyers. All ticket purchasers for the gig will be sent a unique URL that leads to a free download of The Black Angels covering Black Mountain’s debut album track ’No Satisfaction’.
