The Black Angels Release New Song ‘Evil Things’


Austin rock band The Black Angels are set to debut ‘Evil Things’, the first single from the bands new album Indigo Meadow. This is the Texas-based bands fourth LP, it’s to be released on April 2nd.

Lead singer Alex Maas explained the concept: “They come to the realisation that, by nature, humans have the capacity to be either evil or benevolent, empathetic and compassionate. They share an obvious mutual concern for the human condition, but don’t feel as though they are doing anything to make things better. They ask themselves: ‘What am I going to do with the power that I have?’ This song asks that question.”

The Band will soon be embarking on their massive North America tour:
