KAYO DOT Begins Recording New Album

Fresh off of a U.S. tour opening for Trey Spruance's amazing SECRET CHIEFS 3, KAYO DOT has arrived in Seattle to begin recording its second full-length release for Hydra Head Industries.

Throughout the tour, KAYO DOT performed and refined the new compositions, bringing them to new audiences and honing them for the upcoming recording, with Toby Driver also picking up bass duties for SECRET CHIEFS 3 each night.

According to a press release, "The new music features another sonic shift in the ever-evolving sonic lexicon of KAYO DOT. Expect a more visceral rhythmic sound with overdriven chorus basses, cave-echoed horns, vocals and strings, tuned struck metal, and a purveying melodic darkness threaded delicately throughout the sound of the music. Once again, the album will be recorded by Randall Dunn (SUNN O))), EARTH, SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE) who also recorded KAYO DOT's critically acclaimed Hydra Head release from 2008, 'Blue Lambency Downward'."

Expect new music to be released in the fall, with a September/October European tour and U.S. trek to follow.
