New EP From The Black And White Years: Nursery Myths
photo by Jake Holt
The Black And White Years are arguably the biggest Red River all star in terms of indie rock. Their single “Power To Change” is always on the local alternative rock radio station. They took home a bag of Austin Music awards this year. All I can say is that is about time they put out some new recordings on CD, even if just an EP. Nursery Myths, due out September 19th, is your first taste of will be a must own album due in 2010.
The Black And White Years will take to the road to support the release of the EP including their first-ever appearances in Los Angeles in September before returning to Austin for an EP Release Show at Mohawk on September 19th. East coast dates are planned for October and November. The band has performed at Austin City Limits Music Festival, Wireless Music Festival in London, MIDEM in Cannes, CMJ Music Marathon, and the past three South By Southwest Music Festivals.
