Kayo Dot join Robotic Empire roster
Kayo Dot have officially signed on with Robotic Empire for the release of their second album. The Boston, MA group has previously released an album with John Zorn's Tzadik label. Here's what Robotic says about the band: "Kayo Dot is both difficult to call a metal band and difficult to not call a metal band, blending a wide array of haunting atmospheric elements with ultimately unreal and massive climaxes. Not quite in the soft-loud-soft way that many powerful bands operate (Godspeed, Mogwai, etc.) but more akin to classical compositions." The band's yet-to-be titled album will be tracked at Zing Recording Studios (Unearth, Killswitch Engage) in August, with current plans for a fall release. In the interim, check out a track from their last album here.
