Kylesa set to release new album

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 6:55 AM PT


Official press release:

Kylesa is set to release Ultraviolet, one of the most anticipated hard rock releases of the year and the follow-up to their critically-acclaimed album Spiral Shadow, on May 28 via Season of Mist (May 24 in Europe).

"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."

"Unspoken," a new song from the eleven-track album is available online now:





The Savannah-based quintet recorded Ultraviolet at The Jam Room in Columbia, SC with the band's guitar player/songwriter, and sought-after producer, Phillip Cope (Baroness, Black Tusk) once again overseeing production.

I love how "highly anticipated" is used in the first announcement of an upcoming album.

hoping for a 10 min song with a noodling bass line and no inertia, development, or conclusion. WE GOT YOU COVERED HERE
