Scott Kelly To Release New Solo Album

Founding Neurosis guitarist/vocalist Scott Kelly is preparing to release his new solo album in North America via Neurot Records on August 14th.

The past two years have seen Scott Kelly touring across three continents, besides recording for and releasing a split 7? with Wino and the most recent Songs of Townes Van Zandt tribute album with Wino and fellow Neurosis mate Steve Von Till. The following press release was issued about the album:

"The new full-length sees Kellyonce again digging deep into very personal territories as on his previous solo works including his lauded Spirit Bound Flesh and The Wake, yet forges a brand new path as fellow musicians Noah Landis (Neurosis) and Greg Dale join this new venture as Scott Kelly And The Road Home. Jason Roeder (Neurosis, Sleep) and Josh Graham (A Storm Of Light) make guest appearances on the album’s seventh track 'The Field That Surrounds Me' and the cover art for the album was completed by Thomas Hooper.

"The eight tracks found on the new opus, entitled The Forgiven Ghost In Me, was recorded by Landis, and runs deep with over forty minutes of foreboding Americana over eight new anthems, showcasing the ever-evolving artist brandishing some of his most expressive hymns of pain, reflection and redemption to date."

Stated Scott Kelly on the album: “This record continues my passion for acoustic experimentation, this time with a more fleshed out sound and a more diverse use of musicians and instrumentation. But in the end, as I have stated before, this is all about the songs in their rawest form. The stories that they reveal and the emotions that run rampant through my heart.” More...

Scott Kelly Checks In From Solo Tour

Having his American acoustic tour alongside Bob Wayne and Jay Munly in December, and just recently a trek through Australia and New Zealand alongside John Baizely, Scott Kelly's newest U.S. solo tour with support from Eugene S. Robinson (Oxbow) is now underway. The following press release was issued about the tour:

"If there was ever a certainty of damage done, dealt and overcome, the SCOTT KELLY solo tour is an object lesson in the character building parameters of life's grinding parade. Bringing equal parts sonorous weight and lambent beauty, the man, the guitar and the songs from a songbook heavy with NEUROSIS and SHRINEBUILDER antecedents, KELLY's current tour sees him debuting unreleased songs from his upcoming solo record, as well as his previous solo LPs for a live show experience burnished by the acoustic and not diminished by it."

"There's fear everywhere," Kelly says. "In moments both quiet and small. And there's surviving them all. And we are."

Eugene S. Robinson supports with a brand of storytelling that draws from his previously published work, as well as stories from the beast that has driven OXBOW for the past two decades. More...
