New single and wacky video to accompany it: “Florian Saucer Attack” by Black Mountain

Black Mountain only teased us with tiny snippets of sound and mini vids on repeat. Now they are giving us the full blown experience: a space age, raw, rock track with a wacky title and an equally as ridiculous (but genius) animated video stocked with alien rulers, freaky creatures with freaky tentacles, pulsating brains and flying saucers, all perfectly in time with the tune. It’s like Dr. Seuss meets Heavy Metal.

 

Not surprisingly, the video was crafted by the brilliant Chad Vangaalen and premiered on Adult Swim. About the song and video, Black Mountain says:

“Chad VanGaalen gives us an incomprehensible cycle of life, a chain of icky nuzzles and complex formulae that lead us to the creation of an epic sauce…modern alien cuisine is no joke.”

Get it?

New record from Black Mountain due out April 1st!

Vancouver-original space age straight up rock n’ roll band, Black Mountain just announced the release of their latest full length, IV, which we can expect out the 1st of April of 2016.

The band has fused acid rock, psychedelia, a hint of funk  n’ blues and whatever else seems to fit their musical mood to form a truly unique rock sound sure to suit a large crowd. To give fans new and old a taste of what’s to come, the band has released four ridiculously short teasers that somehow put together, give you an awesome taste of what’s to come. You have to listen to all four and in the right order. Each one kind of bleeds into the next:

Teaser 1
Teaser 2
Teaser 3
Teaser 4

 

You can pre-order IV on iTunes now and it will be out officially April 1st on Jagjaguwar.
