Year Long Disaster Release "Black Magic," Hit SXSW

Year Long Disaster's sophomore LP, "Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed" hit stores this week via Volcom Entertainment. To celebrate the release, the band teamed up with to debut the MP3 for the track, "Cyclone."

"Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed" was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush, Marilyn Manson) and is based loosely on the early 20th century Russian novel, Master and Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov. The album is streaming all week on AOL Music, and CBS' Streetdate has free streams of "Show Me Your Teeth" and "Cyclone." Amazon MP3 is also offering the album at a special discounted price.

Since their formation in late 2004, Year Long Disaster have channeled the bastardized muddy blues stomps of their forefathers and overlaid them with their own flash and drama. Of course the band's pedigree makes their skill set less of a surprise. Guitarist and vocalist Daniel Davies is the son of Kinks' Dave Davies, bassist Rich Mullins plays in West Virginia instrumental hard-rock trio, Karma To Burn, and drummer Brad Hargreaves moonlights in eight-time platinum-selling group Third Eye Blind.

Year Long Disaster's 2007 self-titled debut landed them tours with Foo Fighters, The Sword and The Cult, as well as praise from critics and fans alike, including Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister (with whom they also toured), who told Kerrang! Magazine that "Year Long Disaster plays rock and roll music like rock and roll should be played."

Look for US touring for Year Long Disaster around SXSW (where they play with Motorhead) and forward in support of the Volcom Entertainment release of Black Magic: All Mysteries Revealed. Year Long Disaster has also been confirmed for this year's Rock On The Range and Rocklahoma fests.
