Kylesa Launch Their Own Record Label, Prep Vinyl Release from Sierra

Kylesa Launch Their Own Record Label, Prep Vinyl Release from Sierra
Georgia metal outfit Kylesa have announced they've started up a record label called Retro Futurist, with their first official release being the debut LP from upcoming tourmates Sierra.

Kylesa revealed their label plans earlier today (August 27), reporting that Kitchner, ON stoner-prog crew Sierra's Pslip will be the imprint's first vinyl release, though an exact due date has yet to be set in stone. The recording is, however, currently up for sale digitally over on Bandcamp. You can also stream it down below.

Sierra's ties to their benefactors run deep, with Pslip having been produced by Kylesa's Phillip Cope earlier this year at Columbia, SC's Jam Room Studios. He also adds guest vocals to the album's "Into Nothing." Additionally, the two bands, along with Texan metal act Pinkish Black, will be on tour together this fall. The trip is U.S.-only, but you can nevertheless see the dates down below.

As for what's next for Retro Futurist, the owners said in a statement, "We are in the rudimentary stages at the moment but will move toward the future forging new ideas with the love and awe of the old."

It's unclear at present if Kylesa will issue any of their own material via the imprint. Season of Mist released their Ultraviolet LP earlier this year.
