Kylesa premiere “Quicksand,” a new song from their forthcoming album "Ultraviolet", (due to be released 28th May via Season of Mist), via Spin (http://www.spin.com/articles/kylesa-quicksand-ultraviolet-stream).
"'Quicksand' is a quick 2:35 of ghostly dreamdoom that joins the melodies of '90s shoegaze with the churn of modern sludge and a riff straight from the Billy Corgan playbook,” says Spin in a brief write-up accompanying the song stream, adding that the song is “a muscular swirl that should please anyone who thought m b v didn't have enough shouting.”
The band has also unveiled the cover art for "Ultraviolet", which was done by Sean Beaudry. Beaudry, a fellow Savannah resident, did the artwork for the band’s "Time Will Fuse Its Worth" reissue.
Pre-order bundles for the new album are available now via (http://e-shop.season-of-mist.com/en/predefined-search/37879).

Kylesa will play a free, all ages show in their hometown of Savannah at The Dollhouse on 19th April as a way to thank fans for their ongoing support. Pitchfork, in the band’s first interview regarding "Ultraviolet" (http://pitchfork.com/features/show-no-mercy/9084-kylesa/), said of the album: “It’s the… heavy rock band’s darkest, most atmospheric record to date. The collection, which features an array of subtle electronic elements, makes for an expressive, immersive listen that will likely find the double-drumming quintet a larger audience.”
“Unspoken,” also from "Ultraviolet", was released online in late February, leading Stereogum to say “… if the album’s first single is any indication, they’ve continued moving away from their peers as well as their own past, conquering new territory,” adding “it’s a total triumph.” The song can be streamed here: https://soundcloud.com/season-of-mist/kylesa-unspoken.
