Black Earth Tiger is the second and final album by the post-hardcore band Emanuel. It was released on August 28, 2007, by Vagrant Records. The track list was confirmed on Vagrant Records' official site.[1]

The band debuted the first track from the album, "Cottonmouth", on their Myspace on 24 May, and removed it less than two weeks later on 6 June. It was re-added in August in the form of a banner. On 27 June, they uploaded another track from the album, "Scenotaph", to their Myspace page, which was removed just under a month later on 23 July. A new track, "Phobos", was added to Alternative Press' website on 23 July; on 31 July 2007 the song was also added to the band's MySpace profile. The song "My Antapex" is currently[when?] streaming on some radio stations.

On August 21, 2007, the band premiered the album via a full album stream on MySpace.com, with featured placement on the front page of MySpace, as well as the music section.

The band recently[when?] released the video for the track "Cottonmouth".

Trivia[edit]

  • There is a small error in the lyrics booklet that comes with the CD. It states that "Let Them Die" is track 7 and "Abandonment Star" is track 8; it is actually the other way round.
  • The song "Scenotaph" was remixed for the movie Resident Evil: Extinction.
