The Black Angels | "Evil Things" [Stream] + North American 2013 Tour Dates

The_Black_Angels.jpg

Now a quartet, The Black Angels will release their fourth full-length album Indigo Meadow on April 2nd. The first offering is the very, very promising "Evil Things".

"Evil Things" focuses on a man and a woman on opposite sides of a conflict who meet on a war-torn battlefield. Frontman Alex Maas elaborated on this concept to Rolling Stone, saying "they come to the realization that, by nature, humans have the capacity to be either evil or benevolent, empathetic and compassionate. They share an obvious mutual concern for the human condition, but don't feel as though they are doing anything to make things better. They ask themselves: 'What am I going to do with the power that I have?' This song asks that question." [via Rolling Stone]
