Ape to Angle '

Pitch Black : New Album & Tour

11 Sep 2004

ALBUM RELEASED OCT 4

Michael Hodgson and Paddy Free of Pitch Black are proud to announce the birth of their third child, Ape to Angel, a healthy album weighing in at approximately 60minutes of rollicking dub beats. The youngest in a family of three albums, following in the footsteps of Future Proof, released 1998 and Electronomicon in 2000, not to mention its ep cousins electric earth and other elements and flex. It is another slab of cross-genre dub beats and mind-expanding sounds.

Following the release of Ape to Angel,  Pitch Black will be heading on a tour planned to cover New Zealand, UK, Europe, USA and Australia. Playing LIVE has always been one of the things that has set Pitch Black apart from most other electronic acts, pretty much as soon as the ink was dry on the album they started to pull it apart to create the basis for the live show. Pitch Black is not just about the sounds, live video is a key to their performance and composition. The collaboration is being extended to include contributions from top kiwi Vjs and video artists including Bruce Ferguson, James Hutchinson and Matt Dillon. Starting in Wellington on the 15th October and traveling around NZ till the 23rd Oct the boys will be out with their full multi-media show of integrated sound and visuals.
