“Whereas ‘Spiral Shadow’ was a warm album suggesting concepts of hope, ‘Ultraviolet’ is a bit colder and darker”, explains songwriter / guitar player Laura Pleasants. “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”.
'Ultraviolet' was recorded at The Jam Room in Columbia, South Carolina with Kylesa's guitar player / songwriter and sought-after producer, Phillip Cope (Baroness, Black Tusk) once again overseeing production.
Kylesa will return to the road in May with more details forthcoming.
