Death Song is the first full-length release in four years from The Black Angels – Austin’s five-piece psych rock masters – and their debut record on Partisan Records.

Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, the music on Death Song serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety, and unease. “Currency,” a strong contender for the heaviest song the band has ever put to wax, meditates on the governing role the monetary system plays in our lives, while slow-building psychedelic earworm “Half Believing” questions the nature and confusing realities of devotion.

Recorded between Seattle and Austin, Death Song features production from Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes, The Shins). The 11-track collection offers a sharply honed elaboration on their signature sound – menacing fuzz guitar and cutting wordplay, steeped in a murky hallucinatory dream.

All pre-orders come with an instant grat download of “Currency." Double Vinyl LP comes with a sticker, poster, and Digital Download Card. CD comes with a sticker and poster.
