Sludge and psych road warriors and sonic pioneers Kylesa have announced an extended hiatus and no upcoming plans. This band has been a vital part of the underground for a decade and a half and will be sorely missed if this is indeed their swan song. I get new promos all the time but Kylesa are a band who I return to and make time for as a fan, increasingly rare when adulting. I have so many good memories of their songs pulling me through or interviews with the band for various publications and was even wearing their hoodie today.
Best wishes and major thanks to all the current and past alumni for everything. Order or stream their latest stomper Exhausting Fire HERE.
From Kylesa’s FACEBOOK:
To our fans and friends… After 15 years of nonstop touring and writing, we decided that it is time for a break. A lot of you have been asking when we are coming to your part of the world and that means a lot to us. However, we feel it should be known that as of now we have no plans to play any shows or work on any new material. We have collectively decided to take a hiatus with no set date to reconvene. We want to give a huge thanks to all our fans, friends, and family for the support over the years. It has been a killer journey and a real pleasure meeting so many amazing people along the way.
