The brainchild of Los Angeles native Jonathan Bates, Big Black Delta's explosive live show features dueling drummers and an orchestrated light show using visual elements of the bespoke album artwork, which was created by Bates himself and creative director Caspar Newbolt. No stranger to pushing boundaries, LA based Bates was, until recently, the driving force behind alt rock Favorites Mellowdrone, has been heavily involved in M83's live and studio sound and has also worked with the likes of White Sea, among others.
The announcement of the forthcoming April release follows a productive 2012, which saw Big Black Delta tour with Jane's Addiction, The Joy Formidable, M83 and brought the release of tracks including 'IFUCKINGLOVEYOU' and 'Betamax' much to the delight of bloggers everywhere. The band also collected some heavyweight fans with Jay-Z and Dave Navarro taking to their online outlets to heap praise on the band. Big Black Delta has also been in demand for remixes for Daft Punk, Rob Zombie, M83, Dhani Harrison's Thenewno2's and most recently Maynard from Tool's new project Puscifer.
Big Black Delta will appear at next month's Austin's South By Southwest. Stay tuned for additional dates to be announced.
