And they're bringing Howlin' Rain along, too!

Uncut’s favourite heavy psych masters Black Mountain are to follow the release of their second album, “In The Future”, with an extensive tour round the US and their native Canada.

The album is released next Monday in the UK (January 21) and the tour begins ten days later in Seattle, when Black Mountain head up a stellar bill also featuring Howlin’ Rain, Yeasayer and MGMT. The mighty Howlin’ Rain (the choogling Comets On Fire spin-off, whose second great album is due in the spring) then join Black Mountain for more West Coast dates.

Other excellent support acts later in the tour include Ladyhawk, Dead Meadow, Blood On The Wall and hotly-tipped new folkie, Bon Iver.

In other Black Mountain news, the band make their national television debut on Late Night with Conan O’Brien on Thursday, February 21. And you can currently listen to a full album stream of “In The Future” on the band’s myspace page, at http://www.myspace.com/blackmountain .
