“Me and Josh and Amber were in a different band with our friend Christoff [Hoffmeister, Jerk With a Bomb], we were touring around and we’d grown from a two-piece to a three-piece to a four-piece within three albums. During the last tour, we were essentially playing the first Black Mountain record. Then we kind of imploded and regrouped. I don’t know, it was weird. Basically, [Jerk] had recording time at the Hive booked and we were going to record and then Christoff got sick so then I used the time, as opposed to throwing it away, to record the first Pink Mountaintops record. And then Christoff left and then me and Josh [Wells] recorded a bunch of the first record at our space, and then Matt [Camirand] joined, and Jeremy [Schmidt] joined and then Amber [Webber] and we finished our first record at the Hive. It was an exciting time. – Black Mountain Founder Stephen McBean

ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Black Mountain To Release 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Of Self-Titled Debut June 23rd, Announce Tour Dates

It’s only a cliché because it’s true, but the greatest records are timeless. Black Mountain’s self-titled debut album is just such a record, its roots leading twisting paths back into the past, while always sounding like ‘now’, like a future still to come. The work of a small collective of musicians operating from Vancouver, Canada, far from any industry buzz but firmly in the eye of their own storm of creativity, Black Mountain’s debut grew from skeletal sessions cut by Stephen McBean and Joshua Wells. Here was a new classic rock, its reference points arcane and clear, its sound fresh, unfamiliar and irresistible. Savor the compact, spacey brilliance of that cosmic, heavy and subtle debut album, remastered and expanded now with a raft of delicious bonus tracks scavenged from the Black Mountain Army archives. Black Mountain (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) is out June 23rd on Jagjaguwar. Watch the album trailer above or on our YouTube page.

The 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is a double-LP including 8 bonus tracks on limited edition colored vinyl, using foil-print on the first pressing of the litho-wrap gatefold packaging. The records themselves are limited-edition color matched grey double vinyl, as well as standard black vinyl and double disc CD, which are also available with limited edition foil-printing. It includes the original classic album paired with the Druganaut 12″ plus 4 previously unreleased tracks.

Preorder the 10th anniv. edition via Jagjaguwar, iTunes, Amazon, or your local record store.
