Rock trio YEAR LONG DISASTER — which consists of guitarist/vocalist Daniel Davies (son of THE KINKS' Dave Davies), bassist Rich Mullins (ex-KARMA TO BURN, SPEEDEALER), and drummer Brad Hargreaves (THIRD EYE BLIND) — will release its new album, "Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed", on March 9, 2010 via Volcom Entertainment. The CD's first single, "Show Me Your Teeth", is available for download at this location.
Look for YEAR LONG DISASTER to support the release with an exhausting tour schedule, starting with a month-long residency at Los Angeles' Spaceland in January.
YEAR LONG DISASTER's 2007 self-titled debut landed them tours with THE CULT, VELVET REVOLVER, and the FOO FIGHTERS, as well as praise from critics and fans alike, including MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister (with whom they also toured) who told Kerrang! magazine that "YEAR LONG DISASTER plays rock and roll music like rock and roll should be played." At the close of 2008, with two years of international touring behind them, the band secured Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, ALICE IN CHAINS, RUSH, MARILYN MANSON) to produce "Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed".
Based loosely on the early 20th century Russian novel "Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov, "Black Magic" is a landscape peopled by figures — whores, despots, lovers, traitors and dreamers — liberated from the myth that innocence is exalted but haunted by the perpetual threat of spiritual disappointment and emotional disaster that experience has taught them to expect. The album is fueled by howling vocals and blistering guitars that flirt with the limits of control, only to be disciplined back into order by unexpected melodies and the band's famously tight bass and drum section.
