The Angelus have been stirring hearts and unhinging jaws all over Texas with their brand flat out glorious electrified folk music that is as difficult to pin down as it is to forget. Led by the enigmatic vocal powerhouse Emil Rastine, whose brooding tones and mesmerizing stage presence bring to mind any number of iconic front men from Morrissey to Nick Cave, The Angelus quietly summon up epic sounds that build like storm systems and burst into bone rattling sonic downpours, The Angelus often leave even the hardest hearted hipsters teary eyed and shaken.
The band released a self-titled EP on Pyramid-Scheme in late 2004 to national acclaim and now neighbors complain of late night chanting and the ringing of distant bells. Word on the street is those boys have summoned up a full-length album from the ether with Lift To Experience's Josh T Pearson producing.
The Angelus has had the fortune to share the stage with bands such as: The Angels of Light, Wovenhand, Akron Family, Calla, Celebration, The Black Angels, Mono, Do Make Say Think and The Album Leaf.
