To mark the 3000th Daily Dose (it started in April 2008), we’re reposting the first one, by Austin Texas based The Black Angels. The band are still going strong, and have released five albums, four EPs and eight singles over the years. The Black Angels took their name from the Velvet Underground song “The Black Angel’s Death Song”. Check out their Wikipedia page below for more details.

This is what we wrote at the time:

The band formed in 2004 and released Passover two years later to critical acclaim. Most of all, Passover established The Black Angels as a band with brains, balls and a strong message. Directions continues this tradition of being honest and unapologetic “Our central theme is that people need to open up their minds and let everything come through… to learn from past mistakes,” says Christian. “Only then will we understand the reality of this world and progress beyond where we are now as humans…“War is Peace.Freedom is Slavery.Ignorance is Strength. Keep Music Evil.”
