Black Mountain on Tour - Conquering the World in '08

DATELINE: British Columbia, Canada -

How smokin' hot is Canada's Black Mountain? The indie rock band, Stephen McBean, Amber Webber, Matt Camirand, Jeremy Schmidt and Joshua Wells, have a silly good new album "In the Future" in stores now. It's the band's second full-length LP since 2005's self-titled "Black Mountain" release (also on the Jagjaguwar label.)

What is Black Mountain? A trudging guitar band, the resurrection of old school rock psychedelia with elements of post-modern progressive rock - and lots of volume. This is one great listen!

Right now - they have a massive coast-to-coast tour underway. (They finished a trip through Europe last last year.) The fires will really get stoked soon. Black Mountain make their global television debut on February 21st appearing on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

My prediction? - By tour's end and in smaller venues, this will be one of the toughest tickets to get your hands on in 2008. Listen to the music. Check out the dates and get what's yours!
