Search Results for "Kylesa"

The Discussion is the new post-punk/goth/rock band from vocalist and guitarist Laura Pleasants of Kylesa fame. Pleasants has always been very versatile and we are stoked to hear more from this latest endeavor (also feat. Derek Lynch and Richard Adams).

The band have a pretty substantial European tour mostly booked for this autumn with more dates TBA, so if you can catch them as they develop their swing you’ll be able to tell people you were there later on. Should be some super cool shows.

Dates BELOW.

Kylesa stream “Exhausting Fire” with Noisey

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 7:05 AM (PST)


Kylesa have a stream of their enjoyable new record Exhausting Fire over at
Noisey. The hard working band’s latest addition to their legacy, their seventh
LP in all, has some of the stomp they started back in the self titled days and
mastered on Static TensionsUltraviolet and Spiral Shadow‘s oddball charms
are alive and well as the band “throw caution to the wind” and marry blues
rock and sludge with a broader sense of melody than ever and a more and more
masterful sense of psychedelia.

Stream this baby HERE.

“Falling” can instantly be filed away alongside “Tired Climb” and the great and almost Soulfly-esque instrumental “Parent’s Song ” from the S/T as a new classic of layering, tone setting and feel. “Falling” is a dreamier yet just a pinch disconcerting lullabye that shows the post-punk influences and pop flirtation on the fringes of the band’s at times monumentally heavy wall of sound. This is the record that ought to get Ecstatic Vision, Crowbar and Blues Pills fans excited in equal measure, in a perfect world.

Guitarist/vocalist Laurie Pleasants had the following to say about the album: “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.
