Kylesa played Public Assembly on Monday, 10/25, with Hull, a one-off surprise show for the band during their current trek with High On Fire and Torche (Webster Hall pictures here, Torche pictures here).

Unofficially, the show marked the band's coronation of Spiral Shadow, their new LP out NOW on Season of Mist. Quite a few tracks from that LP were represented at the shindig, including my personal fave the crunch-y Built-To-Spill-esque "Don't Look Back". The band opened with the old fave "Hollow Severer" and closed with the Static Tensions burner "Scapegoat" complete with Philip Cope and Corey Barhorst on tribal drumming duties.

A big thank you go to all who attended and to the incredible Hull who came out of a live-show-slumber (they are currently writing their follow-up to Sole Lord) to debut some new material in their opening set.

More pictures, including shots of the very sweet merch, and some video courtesy of ((unartig)) and Chris La Putt (from both NYC shows), below...

Really what's up with those customized hull guitars?

Those guitars are made by hand, from the same person who took the photos of this show, Markus. He makes em under the name "Old Scratch Fabrications," and they are fucking awesome, ballsy sounding machines.
