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.”
