Watch Black Mountain's Video for "Mothers Of The Sun"
14 February 2016
Black Mountain recently released "Mothers of the Sun," the debut single off their forthcoming album, IV (out 4/1 on Jagjaguwar). It comes to us in the form of a bizarre video, one replete with a four-armed Stephen McBean, a ceremonial dagger, prisoners bound in chains, and too many expressions of insanity to list here. The song itself is one that lingered in the practice space for years before finding its way onto a Black Mountain album, or as McBean puts it, "Sometimes a riff hangs out in the basement for 10 years before it's finally ready to hit the streets." Watch the video above and replenish your nightmare fuel.
Also, the band recently announced a tour of Europe and North America. Don't miss an opportunity to see one of the true powerhouse rock bands of today.
