How do I know Kylesa‘s new album, Spiral Shadow, is bad ass? I’m listening to it right now! Plus, as though to confirm the assessment I just made (and the one I’ll make in longer form when I review the record tomorrow), the band has posted the opener, “Tired Climb” now on something called MySpace. Being “so totally into this Facebook thing,” I don’t know what that is, but there’s a link provided in the PR wire info below that you can click if you’re feeling adventurous.
Kylesa‘s Spiral Shadow is due out Oct. 26, and the band join High on Fire and Torche for a five-week US tour starting Sept. 29. You’ll find the dates after the jump:
Savannah-based Kylesa have unveiled “Tired Climb,” a new track from their forthcoming Season of Mist debut, Spiral Shadow, on the band’s MySpace page.
The band, who recently wrapped up a European tour with Converge, recorded the new album at the Jam Room in Columbia, SC, earlier this summer with band member and renowned producer Phillip Cope (Baroness, Withered) once again at the helm.
Kylesa is currently working on a video for “Tired Climb” and will return to the road on Sept. 11 with a performance at Raleigh‘s Hopscotch Festival before joining High on Fire and Torche for a five-week US trek.
