BLACK ACID IN NYC

May 10 - Monkey Town - New York, NY

"Built around a pair of guitars—classic rock and noise—and his deeply personal vocals about some recent loves and losses the new sound conjures what it might be like to hear the Stooges rock a Detroit rave with a little Southern Rock thrown in for good measure." - Interview

Richard Fearless, the man notoriously behind electro-psych rock outfit Death In Vegas returns with a guitar in hand for a new sound and a new band - BLACK ACID. Churning out krautrock & techno inspired hits for over a decade, Richard Fearless experiments with new sounds, pulling inspiration built upon the foundation of classic guitars and rock 'n roll. Taking the dark and soulful psych-rock sounds of Death In Vegas, this New York based band presents a smashing debut release influenced by the likes of The Stooges, Roky Erikson and Hawkwind combined with a touch of Southern charm.
