Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats to support Black Sabbath on European tourBritish horror rockers Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats will support heavy metal legends Black Sabbath on their upcoming European headlining tour in November/December. The trek will kick off on November 20 in Helsinki, Finland and wrap on December 22 in Birmingham, England. A list of tour dates can be found at this location.
Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats released its third full-length album, "Mind Control", on May 14 via Metal Blade/Rise Above Records in North America.
Imagine the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and The Stooges, while sitting on murder charges and you may get a glimpse into their fuzzed up world of exploding tube amps and cymbal smashing mayhem. However, this enticing act of musical manipulation is merely the icing upon a very sick cake.
"Mind Control" is a concept album with a theme that makes the acts and intentions of the likes of Charles Manson and Jim Jones seem like petty crimes. What makes "Mind Control" scarier than most albums is that it doesn't seem as sinister on the surface as it really is deep down, within the core of its black acid-drenched world of pain and torture.
Recorded at the legendary Chapel Studios over an autumnal full moon using the finest western electrical technology, engineer Jim Spencer (Bert Jansch, Robert Wyatt) has captured perfectly the band's live sound of saturated fuzz, mind-bending riffs and '60s vocal harmonies.
