Kylesaâ€™s eagerly anticipated new album, Static Tensions, is set for a Mar. 17 via Prosthetic Records and will be quickly followed by the Apr. 2 launch of a nationwide tour alongside The Haunted at Pomona, Calif.â€™s Glass House.
Guitarist/vocalist Phillip Cope produced Static Tensions, which was recorded at the Jam Room in Columbia, S.C. Discussing the mindset behind the new album, â€œIt was definitely a lot more thought out. We have the hindsight of some of the mistakes weâ€™ve made in the past, so we were able to avoid making them again on this record. I think we came away from the experience with our best stuff yet.â€
â€œAll of our records sound pretty different, but with the same core vibe or sound, and I think the new record has our core Kylesa sound, but branches out even more to incorporate more of our rock and psychedelic influences,â€ adds guitarist/vocalist Laura Pleasants.
With artwork done by Baronessâ€™ John Dyer Baizley, Static Tensions will also see a simultaneous vinyl release on 20 Buck Spin.
