Austin psych-rockers the Black Angels will follow up their 2010 LP Phosphene Dream with Indigo Meadow, set for release on April 2nd on Blue Horizon (and available for pre-order here). Now you can take an exclusive listen to the aptly titled song “Evil Things,” a heavy-duty headbanger built around a foreboding guitar riff. The song tells the story of a man and woman who, dumbfounded by the conflict between their two tribes, meet on a ravaged battlefield.

“They spend all day under a cherry blossom tree, looking to further understand each other’s perspectives as their passion is defined,” frontman Alex Maas says. “They come to the realization that, by nature, humans have the capacity to be either evil or benevolent, empathetic and compassionate. They share an obvious mutual concern for the human condition, but don’t feel as though they are doing anything to make things better. They ask themselves: ‘What am I going to do with the power that I have?’ This song asks that question.”
