Kylesa Return In March For Two New Zealand Shows

Wednesday 11th December, 2013 1:51PM

US sludge-rockers Kylesa have been announced to return to New Zealand in March for two shows. Last here in 2011 with the Melvins and High on Fire, they are touring their new album Ultraviolet released back in May. Luckily for us, they were originally booked to only tour Australia but had to reschedule meaning we now get a piece of the action. Here are the dates followed by a couple of clips from their new album..


Friday 28th March, Kings Arms, Auckland
Saturday 29th March, Bodega Bar, Wellington

Tickets on sale soon from here at UTR, Real Groovy in Auckland and RPM in Wellington.


'Low Tide'

Press Release:

Founded in 2001, and hailing from Savannah, Georgia, the same State that brought us the likes of Mastodon, Baroness, Black Tusk and Royal Thunder, the roots of KYLESA run long and deep in the great Southern Steel of North America.

Originally classified as a crust sludge metal band, the current state and future sounds of KYLESA have gone far beyond the previous sounds of their earlier releases, now incorporating elements of psychedelic rock, progressive metal and experimentation, KYLESA have pushed forward with every new release, whilst still staying true to their original vision of creative all encompassing heavy and progressive music.>[?

Fronted by the guitarists and vocalists Laura Pleasants and Phillip Cope, who founded the band, KYLESA, along with long term drummer Carl McGinley, have had a number of incredible talented personalities pass though the band over the years. With that being said, the current line up of KYLESA is by far their strongest, and the band is incredible happy to be bringing this line up back to New Zealand in March.

Friday 28th: Auckland, New Zealand @ The Kings Arms Saturday 29th: Wellington, New Zealand @ Bodega Bar Tickets available form
