Black Mountain Ride The Wave

Published: 2005-03-07
Finding themselves in a maelstrom of hype following the release of their self-titled debut, Vancouver collective Black Mountain are taking full advantage of the situation and touring the continent in an extensive way. Things are set to kick off on March 11th in Seattle and continue on until April 22nd, when the band will be back on familiar stomping ground in Victoria.

There are a total of 33 stops on Black Mountain's spring jaunt, with six of them falling on Canadian soil. The quintet has plans to play two West Coast cities on opposite ends of the tour, while getting their four eastern Canadian dates done in one fell swoop in early April. A variety of acts will play with Black Mountain on the tour, including Oneida, Frog Eyes, Crystal Skulls, and The Album Leaf.

Released in January through Scratch Records in Canada, Black Mountain's 8-track debut was yet another album that has gained our fair country much musical attention in the past few months. Although hailing from the wrong side of the country to be included in the miraculous "Montreal Scene", it's not likely anyone but Canadians will notice.
