Kylesa Announce Headlining Tour Supporting “Ultraviolet”

Just wanted to share this quick touring announcement from the band Kylesa who will be heading on on a healthy headlining run. Dig into the full press details that we received and mark down the show that is closest to you. Here we go.

The Press Release:
Kylesa kick off their first North American tour in support of Ultraviolet (May 28, Season of Mist) on May 10 in Gainesville, Fla. at the High Dive.

“It’s been a while since we’ve done a headlining tour in the US or Canada,” explained singer/guitar player Laura Pleasants, referring to the near two-year gap since the Savannah band’s last run. “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. “

Spin premiered “Quicksand,” a new song from the 11-track album, earlier this week (http://www.spin.com/articles/kylesa-quicksand-ultraviolet-stream) describing the song “joins the melodies of ‘90s shoegaze with the churn of modern sludge.” Ultraviolet pre-orders are available now via Season of Mist’s e-shop (http://e-shop.season-of-mist.com/en/predefined-search/37879).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I must admit that I haven’t followed the band as much as I would have liked to but there is only so much time in the day. It’s another reason that it’s important to see all bands on a touring package to make sure you get the most for your money and absorb more along with discussing these kinds of tours. This sure does sound interesting so if I am around and able to hit this Northside Festival that they will be appearing at in my neck of the woods you can count on a show report and images of the whole thing. Now, please excuse me as I’ve quite a laundry list of things to do. What do you think of this tour? Let me know down in the comments section below. See you next time.
