Kylesa Reveals New Album Title

Savannah-based quintet Kylesa has announced the title and release date for the band's forthcoming album and follow-up to "Spiral Shadow." New album "Ultraviolet" will hit the stores on May 24th (May 28th in North America).

"Unspoken," a new song from the eleven-track album, is available now for people who subscribe to the Season of Mist newsletter. If you already subscribed to the newsletter, you can still get the MP3 by entering your email address at this location.

“Whereas ‘Spiral Shadow’ was a warm album suggesting concepts of hope, ‘Ultraviolet’ is a bit colder and darker," explains songwriter/guitar player Laura Pleasants. “All of our studio albums have their own unique identity and we've always been a band who strives for something different than what current fads suggest. With ‘Ultraviolet’, we took a step inward and wrote music that we felt we had to write; this album centers around the multiple themes of loss and you can feel it in the music. Everyone goes through it during their lifetime and this record reflects that experience.”

Kylesa recorded "Ultraviolet" at The Jam Room in Columbia, South Carolina with the band's guitar player/songwriter and producer Phillip Cope (Baroness, Black Tusk) once again overseeing production. Kylesa will also return to the road in May with more details forthcoming.

Kylesa To Release "From The Vaults, Vol. 1"

Kylesa is set to release “From The Vaults, Vol. 1,” a twelve-song collection featuring unreleased and alternate versions of songs spanning the band's catalog, including a cover of Pink Floyd's "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun," on November 16th (November 20th in North America).

“This project has been a labor of love,” explains guitarist/singer/producer Phillip Cope. “We have spent over a year going through old songs, covers, etc. and collected those we felt went well together; remixing and finishing them up. We didn't want to release something just thrown together so we put a lot of thought and time into it. I am really happy about how this came together. I think it is a good representation of Kylesa's different styles from early on to present day."

The track listing is:

1. Intro **
2. Inverse **
3. 111 Degree Heat Index ***
4. Between Silence and Sound II ***
5. Paranoid Tempo **
6. End Truth *
7. Bottom Line II ***
