I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Blackfield is one of my favorite bands. They’ve put out some of the most beautiful and heartbreaking, yet at the same time, cathartic music, in the last several years (just listen to ‘My Gift Of Silence’). They’re a band that I keep coming back to and appreciating. So, when it was announced that there was going to be a third album, ‘Welcome To My DNA’, I was already happy enough.
However, Blackfield have just announced that they are doing a N. American tour in support of the album. You better believe that I’ll be at the Detroit show at St. Andrews Hall. Funny story: St. Andrews Hall is where I first saw both Porcupine Tree and Opeth. It was the same show, no less (The ‘In Absentia/Damnation Tour’). Check after the jump for tour dates. READ MORE
Blackfield, the project of Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson and Israeli mega star Aviv Geffen, will be releasing ‘Welcome To My DNA’, their third album, on March 28th. A teaser video that snuck onto the web in which you can hear samples of many (all?) the songs on the album. Check it out here. I really enjoyed the first CD but the second Blackfield album is, in my opinion, a masterpiece. So I’m really looking forward to hearing this when it comes out.
Blackfield, easily one of my favorite bands, has set late March release date for the upcoming, as of yet untitled, third studio album. A whole slew of festival tour dates have been announced on the Blackfield Facebook and a North American tour announcement will be coming soon.
