Just announced: Black Mountain at The Mill

Black Mountain

The Mill — Wednesday, Jun. 15 at 8 p.m.

Black Mountain at the Mill
Black Mountain plays The Mill in Iowa City on June 15.

Formed in 2004, Vancouver band Black Mountain has released three albums and half a dozen EPs in their 12 years together, most on the preeminent Jagjaguwar, their current label. On Apr. 1, they’re set to release their fourth studio album, the aptly titled IV. That tour will take them across the U.S. and Canada, starting June 9, and one of their first stops will be in Iowa City, on June 15, at The Mill. Pre-sale tickets, $15 ($18 at the door) go on sale Friday, Mar. 11 at 11 a.m.

Black Mountain’s self-titled first album was an Editor’s Pick in 2005, and led to a three-week stint opening for Coldplay on that band’s Twisted Logic Tour. “Stay Free,” from the band’s sophomore album In the Future, found its way onto the Spiderman 3 soundtrack. Their deliciously layered walls of sound tend towards a stoner rock feel, with just enough melodic swirl to be grounded in psychedelia, like a perfectly formed bastard child of Fu Manchu and Jefferson Airplane.
