KYLESA To Release 'From The Vaults, Vol. 1' In November

KYLESA will issue a new collection, "From The Vaults, Vol. 1", on November 20 (four days earlier in Europe). The CD features previously unreleased, new and alternate versions of songs spanning the band's catalogue, including one entirely new song ("End Truth") as well as the band's legendary cover of PINK FLOYD's "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun".

"This project has been a labor of love," explained guitarist/singer/producer Phillip Cope. "We have spent over a year going through old songs, covers, etc., and collected those we felt went well together; remixing and finishing them up. We didn't want to release something just thrown together so we put a lot of thought and time into it. I am really happy about how this came together. I think it is a good representation of KYLESA's different styles from early on to present day."

The Savannah-based band recently wrapped up a European tour, which included stops at the Wacken Open Air and Area 4 festivals, and will enter the studio to begin work on a new album for 2013.

KYLESA's most recent release, 2010's "Spiral Shadow", was revered by fans and critics alike as a "record that trashes everything you might expect from the genre" (Pitchfork) and is "as sweaty as a south Georgia summer" (Spin). Singer/guitarist Laura Pleasants was recently featured on the cover of Decibel magazine's inaugural Women In Metal issue.
