Kylesa Go on Indefinite Hiatus

BY Gregory AdamsPublished Apr 30, 2016

Fifteen years into their prolific, psych-sludge career, Savannah, GA combo Kylesa have announced they're going on an indefinite hiatus.

News comes from the band themselves, who took to their Facebook page to explain that it's time for them to take a break, following a decade-and-a-half of steady touring and recording.

"A lot of you have been asking when we are coming to your part of the world and that means a lot to us," they wrote in a statement. "However, we feel it should be known that as of now we have no plans to play any shows or work on any new material. We have collectively decided to take a hiatus with no set date to reconvene."

Kylesa was formed in 2001 following the dissolution of Damad. Though the group would undergo many lineup changes over the years, founding guitarists/vocalists Phillip Cope and Laura Pleasants were constants throughout their 15 year run.

In addition to a litany of vinyl singles, split releases and comp appearances, Kylesa produced seven album between 2002 and 2015. Their last full-length release was Exhausting Fire, which Exclaim! praised for mixing elements of psychedelia "with their more doomy roots."
