Been hoping there would be some new Black Mountain Army activiity soon - and look - here's two side projects on the horizon... Grim Tower finds Stephen McBean on a freaky "New Acoustic Death Folk" trip in the snow with Imaad Wasif. Album Anarchic Breezes is out May 21. "Let the free ride the breeze"? Right on, snow bros. Meanwhile Black Mountain's mellower wing Lightning Dust (Amber Webber and Josh Wells) are heading into Fleetwood Mac territory with Diamond, the first one from their new album Fantasy - out June 25. Various pre-order download options available. Should just about tide us over while we wait for a new Stormy High to finish off the giant mecha-smackdown playlist.
