The sultry neo-psychedelic sound of the Black Angels came together in spring 2004. Hailing from Austin, Texas, they initially comprised Stephanie Bailey (drums), Christian Bland (guitar), Alex Maas (vocals), Jennifer Raines (organ), and Nathan Ryan (bass), and took their name from a classic, “The Black Angel’s Death Song.” The band’s self-titled debut EP was released in late 2005. After a string of North American dates in winter 2006, they readied themselves for a performance at the annual South by Southwest Music Conference in March. Their first couple of full-length albums — April 2006’s Passover and April 2008’s Directions to See a Ghost — were both, in the main, recorded at Erik Wofford’s Austin, Texas-based Cacophony Recorders, a studio also used by other local and notable indie rock acts such as and . By the time the second record was issued, Raines had been replaced by multi-instrumentalist Kyle Hunt and the Black Angels were beginning to create a name for themselves on the live circuit among fans of ’60s-inspired psych rock.
2017 saw the release of Death Song, which ranked with the Black Angels’ heaviest work to date, and unveiled a new lineup, with longtime members Stephanie Bailey, Christian Bland, and Alex Maas joined by Jake Garcia (guitar, bass, and vocals) and Kyle Hunt (bass, guitar, and keyboards). ~ MacKenzie Wilson & James Wilkinson, Rovi
