NEW SONG: “King Candy” by Lightning Bolt, Playing Paramount Theatre In September…Maybe

Chris Rotolo August 21, 2012 News No Comments

Rhode Island Experimental Noise-Rock outfit Lightning Bolt will be releasing a seven-track compilation record of yet to be released material from various recording sessions since the group’s inception back 1994 through its current state.  The EP is titled Oblivion Hunter and is slated to drop on Sepetember 25th via  Load Records…also known as four days after the band is scheduled through Asbury Park to play our own Paramount Theatre.

NOTE: More details are to come on that show, as it is still unclear if the band will be performing, due to its scheduled appearance at the All Tomorrow’s Parties-presented I’ll Be Your Mirror festival now being held in New York City on the same date…Stay tuned for more.

Stream a cut from the record below titled “King Candy,” a cacophony of distorted dinosauric roars from the vacuous blackened depths of space spilled out over waves of bass, six string manipulation, and your greatest fears, below:
