Dead Meadow (LA) / Pink Mountaintops (Canada) Tour

Posted in news on April 1, 2012 by heathenskulls


LA based, DC born, Dead Meadow have been spreading their psychic ideals for well over 10 years, gone are the days of indie cool and the hit band of summer tag, Dead Meadow have now risen above the critical acclaim and media hype and become an institution, a highly valued and well respected part of the American musical and artistic consciousness.
With founding drummer Mark Laughlin back in the fold and a brand new studio album in the can, Dead Meadow are about reclaim the throne from the shivering three kings and re-establish them selves as the undisputed lords of 70’s inspired psych rock.
Accompanying Dead Meadow on their 3rd Australian tour will be the Vancouver based side project of Black Mountains Stephen McBean, and that being his critically acclaimed experimental psych ensemble Pink Mountaintops, who now feature Cat Power side man and one time Delta 72 guitarist and current Black Ryder member Mr Gregg Foreman.
With a vast back catalogue to explore and new recordings to offer, both Dead Meadow and Pink Mountaintops will be spreading their celestial vibrations across Australia and New Zealand in late March and early April 2012. Stay tuned for details.
