Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats announce new album, tour

Posted by on June 15, 2015

While 2013’s Mind  Control was America’s first introduction to UK occult rockers Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, it was actually their third album. The band broke through pretty significantly, however, and they just announced their fourth album, The Night Creeper, with their biggest tour ever, hitting North America and Europe. The Night Creeper will be released on September 4th on Rise Above Records. Mind Control was written about the post-Manson period where the Summer of Love took a turn into drugs, cults and serial killers. There’s also a concept behind The Night Creeper, according to the band’s Kevin Starrs:

The idea is that this album could have started life as an old cheap, grime-covered 25 cent pulp paperback like the type sold at news-stands outside train stations,” says enigmatic band leader Kevin Starrs. “But then perhaps it is adapted into a film noir, which itself is then re-made twenty year s later as an ultraviolent, slasher Italian Giallo film. The album follows this aesthetic lineage as it descends from trash to noir to something discernibly darker…”

While their first trip to America last September found them playing a two week run of dates, their return is significantly more extensive, and they’ll also back it with a European tour as well. Here’s where you’ll be able to catch the tour:
