BLUE ANGEL LOUNGE, THE
EWIG (8MM MUSIK)
Limited edition, 180 gram colored vinyl. Germany's The Blue Angel Lounge follow up their 2010 album Narcotica with the intense and brooding 4 track EP titled, Ewig (german for Eternal).
The past year has seen the band tour extensively throughout Europe and America, with a breakthrough performance at 2011s Austin Psych Festival: ,The Blue Angel Lounge could have easily pulled off a headlining spot.
Their performance was certainly one of the most beautiful that we heard at Austin Psych Fest." - The Austinist.
Their ascent continues with their invitation to support the Brian Jonestown Massacre on their US tour in April and March.
A Brief History: Founded in 2006 by Nils O. and Dennis 'Mel' Melster, the band completed their self-titled debut in 2008, of which 500 vinyl copies were self-released.
One of the copies made it into the hands of Will Carruthers of Spacemen 3, who subsequently passed it on to a friend at 8MM Musik.
The band were signed shortly after. An appearance at the UK's Dream Machine Festival in 2008 led to the track 'The God', from their debut, being included on the UK neo-psych compilation 'Open Your Mind', later pronounced DIY Compilation Of The Week by the BBC in 2009.
Following their first ever show in Berlin in 2009, Anton Newcombe was impressed enough to offer to help with production, and, with his studio wizardry and the band's already stellar songwriting and musical talent, 'Narcotica' was recorded in under two weeks.
2011 was spent touring extensively in Europe and North America. May 2012 will see the release of the bands new EP, ,Ewig" with a new album in the bag for later this year.
