Kylesa Unveil New Track ‘Unspoken’ From Upcoming Studio Album ‘Ultraviolet’
Fully-baked Georgia sludge band Kylesa are amping up fans for their sixth studio album, ‘Ultraviolet,’ which will see a May 28 release date via Season of Mist. Luckily, you won’t have to wait another three months to catch some new music by the band, as Kylesa have crept up on us all with the new track ‘Unspoken.’
Those familiar with Kylesa will automatically click with the swampy style of the Georgian act, while the unconverted may find a new subgenre of metal to lock onto. Vocalist / guitarist Laura Pleasants takes the wheel for ‘Unspoken’ instead of fellow vocalist / guitarist Phillip Cope, who constantly trades off the frontman/woman spot with Pleasants throughout Kylesa’s discography.
When comparing the upcoming ‘Ultraviolet’ to the band’s most recent full-length, ‘Spiral Shadow,’ Pleasants offered an in-depth look into what fans can expect:
Whereas ‘Spiral Shadow’ was a warm album suggesting concepts of hope, ‘Ultraviolet’ is a bit colder and darker. 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.
With the creative success of the experimental compilation album ‘From the Vaults, Vol. 1‘ still fresh in the memory of fans, Kylesa are positioned for an incredibly successful 2013. Listen to ‘Unspoken’ in the audio player below and get ready to sink into Kylesa’s sonic marsh when ‘Ultraviolet’ comes out on May 28.
