Support acts announced for Black Mountain's NZ tour

Drawing on blues, psychedelia, acid rock, Led Zeppelin, and the Velvet Underground, the Vancouver five piece Black Mountain are coming to New Zealand for the first time and bringing with them, their fourth proper album, IV

Joining the band in Auckland and Wellington will be psychedelic folk pop artist Dave Weir and the Wellington line up will be rounded off by psychedelic three­piece live band Transistor.

Auckland's Dave Weir creates psychedelic folk and pop which blows through the house like a warm wind from the1960s. Dave has recently released his debut EP Food For Thought which arrived earlier in August weaving and coursing with the echoes of influence from his first loves The Kinks, Simon and Garfunkel and David Bowie. 

The songs on psychedelic three­ piece live band Transistors self titled EP consist of distorted, earworm­like riffs, bombastic Keith Moon­ styled drumming and piercing, yet ethereal melodies, which are all pulled together through a tight, loud lo­fi production sound.
