Kylesa To Tour With Converge in November

Savannah, GA-based sludge rockers KYLESA have been confirmed to support Converge in November for a string of US tour dates. Also appearing alongside Some Girls and Modern Life Is War, the domestic dates will be the first batch of touring plans Stateside after returning from the band’s current tour throughout Europe. The live shows will also be the first dates scheduled for the band following the release of KYLESA’s forthcoming album, ‘Time Will Fuse Its Worth' on Oct. 31.

Previously, KYLESA revealed artwork, and track info for the ‘Time Will Fuse Its Worth.’ Snippets of the foldout artwork, which was constructed by KYLESA guitarist/vocalist Laura Pleasants, can been seen here, and links are also provided to both an mp3 and a video for the album’s fourth track, “Where The Horizon Unfolds.”

Prior to departing for the band’s current European tour, KYLESA met up with director Tony Costello of SSD Films to shoot footage for what would become the video for “Where The Horizon Unfolds,” which mixes psychedelic imagery with the track’s haunting, building atmosphere. Marking the debuts of drummers Jeff Porter and Carl McGinley, ‘Time Will Fuse Its Worth’ will see an October 31 release date through Prosthetic Records (a day earlier in European territories).

“When we first started the band, we had planned on having two drummers but it didn't work out, so now it feels like everything is coming together,” Pleasants previously said. “There is definitely a new level of intensity to KYLESA now. Since the new lineup has gotten together we have felt the strongest creative spark yet.”

Kylesa's tour schedule is as follows: More...

Kylesa Give Update On New Music

Savannah, GA sludge rockers KYLESA have offered an update on the band, fresh off a string of dates alongside Baroness and its appearance at the 8th annual Emissions From The Monolith festival:

"So we are about to record a brand new album. It hasn't even been a year since we recorded 'To Walk a Middle Course,' but since Carl and Jeff have joined the band, we've been writing constantly and are pretty stoked on what's come out of the jams. We're recording this month, so the record should be out in October sometime, right after we get back from Europe. We're doing a split 7" with Victims which will be out this summer on Hyperrealist in the US and Unsociable in Europe. We're also contributing a song for the EyeHateGod tribute CD which is coming out on Emetic Records. We're doing "Left to Starve" off of their first record. Other bands that will be on the comp include Brutal Truth, Lair of the Minotaur, Unearthly Trance and a bunch more."

Kylesa Writing New Material, To Tour Again

Savannah sludge rockers KYLESA will be back on the road on the East Coast this spring to continue supporting 2005's critically-acclaimed "To Walk A Middle Course." Landing on a handful of year-end lists, the band will take that buzz on the road alongside a variety of other acts including Municipal Waste, Baroness, Victims, and labelmates Yakuza. More dates will be announced as they are confirmed.

Last month, Kylesa settled on a replacement for the band's vacant drummer position: 2 of them. "Since the dawn of Kylesa, it was our intention to have two drummers but at the time it didn't pan out," the band says. "Finally, after 5 years it has become a reality and two new members have been added to play drums: Jeff Porter from Detroit and Carl McGinley of Savannah (who also drums for the Unpersons). We feel that this is our strongest line up as of yet and new and old songs are coming along great." Kylesa is currently writing material for the follow-up to the band's Prosthetic debut, "To Walk A Middle Course."

NEHMF 2005 Live Report

It’s that time of year again- birds are chirping, trees are blossoming, the city’s Crowne Plaza Hotel is bombarded with numerous metal parties. And, of course, the local businesses in Worcester, MA hand out flyers that read “Dear metalheads (!!!), if you’re wondering where to get drunk tonight, come to our pub”.

It’s the New England Metal Fest weekend, which was held on April 22-24 and welcomed fans from all corners of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and even UK. Probably the biggest and best festival on this side of the Atlantic. At least this year’s.
