Looks like Austin Psych Fest 2013 may as well be called "none more black." The gathering of all distorted and scuzzy has just unleashed the lineup for its sixth annual gathering of the clans, with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Black Angels heading up the interest list. Plus (and super-psyched for this) the re-return of Man or Astroman?

The fest continues its mobile feast feel, and this year it abandons the indoors completely in favor of a full-blown outdoor experience. Instead of returning to Emo's East, they'll be out at Carson Creek Ranch, just off Highway 183. The fest runs April 26-28 (yeah, you should just have recovered from SXSW) and tickets are on sale now at

Here's the full line-up so far – Expect more announcements in January:

Acid Mothers Temple
The Black Angels
Black Bananas
Black Mountain
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
The Black Ryder
The Cult of Dom Keller
Dead Skeletons
Elephant Stone
Golden Animals
The Growlers
Holydrug Couple
The King Kahn & BBQ Show
The Laurels
Man or Astroman?
Quintron and Miss Pussycat
The Soft Moon
Vinyl Williams
Gary War
The Warlocks
White Fence
