The Black Angels are back and they’re offering the following wise words: Don’t Play With Guns.
The Texas band have announced the upcoming release of their hotly anticipated new album. Indigo Meadow will arrive in UK stores and online on April 1.
Indigo Meadow is heralded by the high-powered Don’t Play With Guns. Penned just days before last year’s mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, you can check it out below.
“Our music has always tried to shed light on issues that may be hard to deal with or confront,” says singer/multi-instrumentalist Alex Maas. “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.
“In Don’t Play With Guns the antagonist is a female who has the power of persuasion over a man,” he continues. “Substitute the female antagonist with a nation, substitute the manipulated man with yourself. Heed the warning: Don’t Play With Guns.”
Indigo Meadow marks the Black Angels’ fourth full-length release, following 2010’s acclaimed Phosphene Dream.
