black midi announce Cavalcade and offer its lead single/video, “John L.” Cavalcade is a dynamic, hellacious, and inventive follow-up to 2019’s widely-praised Schlagenheim, “a labyrinth with hairpin-turn episodes and lyrics full of dourly corrosive observations” (New York Times, Best Albums of 2019). It scales beautiful new heights, pulling widely from a plethora of genres and influences, reaching ever upwards from an already lofty base of early achievements. black midi — Geordie Greep (guitar, primary vocals), Cameron Picton (bass, vocals), and Morgan Simpson (drums) — picture Cavalcade as a line of larger than life figures, from a cult leader fallen on hard times and an ancient corpse found in a diamond mine to legendary cabaret singer Marlene Dietrich, strolling seductively past them. “When you’re listening, you can imagine all the characters form a sort of cavalcade. Each tells their story one by one and as each track ends they overtake you, replaced by the next in line,” comments Picton.
Following the release of Schlagenheim, The Times (UK) called black midi “the most exciting band of 2019.” They were featured in the New York Times Magazine’s annual music issue, named a Rising artist by Pitchfork, Band to Watch byStereogum and Artist You Need to Know by Rolling Stone. The New York Times, Pitchfork, Stereogum, SPIN and beyond featured it in their best albums of 2019.
