Tobacco of Black Moth Super Rainbow Aligns with Ghostly for His Most ‘Purposely Difficult’ Album

Known for helming the wildly experimental Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania psychedelic electronic outfit Black Moth Super Rainbow, producer Tobacco has announced that this third album, Ultima II Massage, will be released May 13 via Ghostly Records. He will prime the proverbial pump for the new album by kicking off a string of club dates beginning on April 12 at 123 Pleasant Street in Morgantown, WV (see full list of tour dates below).

Talking about his way of working for the album, Tobacco says he didn’t go for putting needles into the red for every song. “I wanted to push each song just enough, so that even when the album’s at its wildest, it’s something you can zone out to. It feels like a definitive end to a concept I’ve been trying to perfect forever. Maniac Meat was linear. This time I wanted to do a lot of different things and have them come together as one meditative piece. At least for myself.”

He added, “This might be my most purposely difficult album yet, but I promise if you let it in, it can fuck you up.”
