Latest release: "Ultraviolet"

Release date: Fri, May 24 2013, US Tue, May 28 2013

Genre-defying southern quintet KYLESA have announced a North American tour. The "Ultraviolet Summer 2013 Tour" will kick off on May 10th in Gainesville, FL, and end on June 22 in Savannah, GA. The tour will see support from BLOOD CEREMONY, WHITE HILLS, and LAZER/WULF. A full list of tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, guitarist Laura Pleasants said: “It’s been a while since we’ve done a headlining tour in the US or Canada. We are looking forward to doing a proper tour supporting 'Ultraviolet'. It will be good to see friends and fans (old and new) and hit these once familiar landscapes again. I think the package will deliver the goods as well; a little mix in the stew for everyone who digs our sound.”

Last week, Spin premiered “Quicksand,” a new song from the 11-track album. ‘Ultraviolet’ pre-orders are available now via the Season of Mist’s e-shop.

One of the most anticipated hard rock releases of 2013, and the follow-up to 2010’s critically-acclaimed ‘Spiral Shadow’, KYLESA is set to release 'Ultraviolet' on May 24th (May 28th in North America). 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.

Previously, KYLESA released a rarities collection in November titled ‘From The Vaults, Vol. 1,’ which featured unreleased, new and alternate versions of songs spanning the band's catalog as well as one new song titled "End Truth." Cope and Pleasants spent over a year going through their archives preparing the release.

The band's most recent studio album, 'Spiral Shadow', had the highest metal/hard rock entry on the Village Voice's 2010 Pazz & Jop album poll, led Pitchfork to say "KYLESA would be a household name" following the release and landed the band on the cover of Terrorizer as well as album of the month accolades from Metal Hammer, Rock Sound and Visions Magazines. In 2011, KYLESA became the first metal band to perform on Last Call with Carson Daly.
