Already one year after releasing "Wilderness Heart", Vancouver- stoner rock band headed by Steve McBean, Black Mountain is back with another release. This time it is a soundtrack for a new surf film entitled, Year Zero. The film is being put together by Globe, features a number of their surf squad and has been described as "post-apocalyptic surf film."
Unfortunately the album will be released on vinyl only (Jagjaguwar.. Jan 2012) and will mainly consist of tracks previously unreleased from albums past and early incarnations of the band. Regardless from what I hear in the trailer for the film, ... definitely on my radar.
There is no current release date for the film and you can catch Steve McBean on tour right now with his other band, the newly slimmed down.. Pink Mountaintops.
