Kylesa will release their newest album, Ultraviolet, on May 28 via Season of Mist. Subscribers to the Season of Mist newsletter can get a new track called "Unspoken" here.
Bassist Laura Pleasants commented on the album:
"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."
The Bronx get so sexy in their new video for "Get Wasted" that they premiered it on Playgirl.com.
