Singer Al Firicano, of the thrash metal band, Ravage, has issued the following update regarding some tour date cancellations:
"Ravage has unfortunately been forced to cancel appearances at The KC Power Fest and the August 18th show at Volume 11 in Raleigh, NC (this show will still be taking place, but without Ravage). Due to issues with the Ravage mobile, we've been forced to wait for repairs to take place in Missouri, so we will be delayed significantly and will have to pick up the tour in Allentown PA on August 20th - that will be the next show. We'd like to sincerely apologize to the fans and promoters for this and we hope to add a Kansas City show and a Raleigh NC show back to the tour before it is all over. Details will be announced when available." More...

This spring, Ohio’s mighty SKELETONWITCH and Georgia lords (and lordess) of sludge KYLESA will embark on the hessian odyssey that is the “Southern Discomfort” tour, a co-headlining trek that – not counting performances by both bands at the Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta – kicks off March 13 in Charlotte, N.C. Included among Southern Discomfort’s destinations is a stop in Austin, Tex., where both bands will appear at South By Southwest (SXSW). Special guest Black Tusk will lend support nightly with their heavy metal punk ‘n’ roll mayhem.
SKELETONWITCH is currently hard at work on the follow-up to 2007’s much-acclaimed "Beyond the Permafrost." The new record is scheduled for a late 2009 release. Meanwhile, KYLESA’s new slab of psychedelic heft, “Static Tensions,” drops on March 17. A new song, “Said And Done,” is currently streaming at the band's MySpace page.
The latest Southern Discomfort tour dates are as follows: More...
Georgia based metal band Kylesa has issued the following update about streaming a new song and revealing the artwork for their upcoming album "Static Tensions" on their MySpage page:
"Today we unveil one of the new songs off of our upcoming record Static Tensions. Said and Done was the first song we wrote for Static Tensions and has a little bit of everything that can be heard on the album. We think it is a good introduction. I must note that the mp3 does does give the song's nuances proper justice. The cd will melt your walls. The album artwork was created by our long time friend John Dyer Baizley of Baroness and was produced by our guitar player / vocalist Phillip Cope (Baroness, Withered). Pre-order details for the album can be found here.
"The pre-order special includes an exclusive album edition t-shirt by John Baizley and CD. We'll have more information on the vinyl and 7" later this week. We will join label mates Skeletonwitch and Black Tusk for a 3 week tour including a stop at SXSW. Black Tusk and Skeletonwitch are old friends so it will be cool to share the road and late nights with these guys. We'll have dirty swamp metal on one side and some righteous ripping metal on the other. All in all a damn good show and a damn good time. A few days later we'll hook up with The Haunted, Nacytmystium and Intronaut. We have a show April 1st which we will post soon. We look forward to playing the new songs."

Savannah, Georgia’s KYLESA has announced a string of East Coast shows which will also bring the band to parts of the southern US, including a handful of headlining dates and 11 shows with Pinback. These shows are the first for KYLESA since taking part in a co-headlining tour with Germany’s The Ocean earlier this summer, and will be the band’s first after leaving The Jam Room Studio in South Carolina, where they are currently holed up recording the follow-up to the band’s third full-length, "Time Will Fuse Its Worth," which saw a fall 2006 release through Prosthetic Records.
“We've been writing a new record over the past few months,” the band wrote on its blog. “We're excited to record a new album since it's been two years since we recorded ‘Time Will Fuse its Worth.’ It's hard to believe it's been that long! The CD will be released on Prosthetic in early ‘09 and the vinyl version will come out around the same time. Phillip [Cope, guitarist/vocalist] will be producing the record.” Expect several in-studio updates from the band in the meantime.
KYLESA has also made tentative plans to tour Japan for the first time upon release of the Japanese edition of "Time Will Fuse Its Worth," which will be handled by Red Cobalt Industries. Featuring completely redesigned artwork by guitarist/vocalist Laura Pleasants and an exclusive poster and sticker, production on that will begin soon and more details will be available shortly, including release details and overseas tour dates.

Georgian metallers, KYLESA, have issued the following update:
"It's been a while since our last update so here you go: We've been writing a new record over the past few months and we're about to head to the Jam Room studio on Monday [July 21] to begin tracking. We're excited to record a new album since it's been two years since we recorded 'Time Will Fuse its Worth.'" More...
Savannah’s KYLESA will be embarking on a co-headlining tour in May with Germany’s The Ocean in May and early June. Also on the tour will be Lair of The Minotaur and KYLESA’s Prosthetic Records labelmates WITHERED. KYLESA continues to support 2006’s "Time Will Fuse Its Worth," which recently sent the band to Europe alongside fellow Georgians Baroness. WITHERED, meanwhile, will be supporting the band’s forthcoming release, "Folie Circulaire," which is currently slated for release in June. The effort is currently being recorded by Phillip Cope (Baroness, Kylesa, Black Tusk).
“Everything is going very well,” WITHERED guitarist Mike Thompson previously said from the studio. “Phillip has a great ear and a great vision for this album. I think it will likely exceed our expectations. Phillip has really gotten a grasp of how we want the record to sound and done a great job of getting in our heads. We were able to transform The Jam Room into our own little world. We’ve been sleeping on the floor and have completely lost track of time. There are no windows or clocks. The focus has been incredible.”
“We chose to work with Phillip because we’ve known him for a long time and his crusty background with Damad and Kylesa is something we really wanted to incorporate into the record,” Thompson elaborates. “A full tilt death or black metal production would have been the wrong direction. Phillip is also a big fan of black and death metal which gives him a unique perspective that we can trust.” An image of the band and Cope can be viewed here.
"Folie Circulaire" is the follow-up to 2005’s critically-acclaimed "Memento Mori," and will be the band’s Prosthetic Records debut. An unnamed demo song from ‘Folie Circulaire,’ along with previous material, is available on WITHERED’s official MySpace page.
