The Black Heart Procession: New Album & Support Tour

The Black Heart Procession
Take Their Haunting Chamber Pop On The Road In Support Of New Album Six

The Black Heart Procession
San Diego based baroque pop outfit The Black Heart Procession are hitting the road in support of their new album, Six, out October 6. Over their ten year and five album career, The Black Heart Procession have acquired the status of being one of underground music's darkest cult phenomenon, and this sentiment is all the more confirmed with their sixth release.

Six is The Black Heart Procession's first album to be written and recorded simultaneously with a new album by Three Mile Pilot, the band that originally spawned Pinback and The Black Heart Procession. As both Three Mile Pilot and The Black Heart Procession now coexist for the first time ever, founding members, Pall Jenkins and Tobias Nathaniel, have steered The Black Heart Procession into a darker, more adventurous direction, with an increased focus on rhythm and a more wildly eclectic instrumental palette. Produced and recorded by the band over the past couple years, Six is, without a doubt, the group's most emotionally resonant album in years. Brimming with pitch-black ballads of discarded loves and forgotten souls, the album paints a bleak yet strangely comforting portrait of heartbreak, self-destruction and religious allegory over some of their most inspired songs to date.

The Black Heart Procession mainstays, Pall Jenkins on vocals and guitar and Tobias Nathaniel on piano and guitar, will be joined by Matt Resovich (Rafter, The Album Leaf) on violin, Jovi Butts (Mr. Tube and The Flying Objects) on bass and Jason Hooper (Goodbye Blue Monday) on drums. The five-piece band will perform songs off of Six, plus many selections from The Black Heart Procession's back catalogue on their upcoming tour.
