Next Friday is the first day of Coachella. While MASTODON will be preparing for their show out there in the desert the next day, touring mates INTRONAUT and KYLESA will be in Echo Park tearing it up at the Echoplex. They'll be joined by MADE OUT OF BABIES and BLACK ELK. I've had KYLESA's new record, Static Tensions, on rotation in my car for the last week. It's ridiculously good, two drummers and all. Terrorizer is right to proclaim that it "looks set to become the band's landmark album." We've profiled INTRONAUT before. They make Los Angeles proud and to be invited on to this otherwise all-Georgia tour says a lot. Although they've played some local shows in the last few months, they never really properly toured in support of Prehistoricisms. It's an album that's less immediately addictive and a bit more complex than Kylesa's, but as rewarding. It will be a sludgefest. And MOOB is further proof that women are going to play an integral role in this wave of metal.
So if you're not joining the hordes at Coachella, this could be the place to be. We've got three pairs of tickets to give away. If you want them, contact us here.
