Lightning Bolt tour dates for July

damn oversized emails make this harder than it has to be -

Last we left this amplified tribe of two on 2005's Hypermagic Mountain, Lightning Bolt were tossing thousand of years worth of musical history into a wood chipper and coming up with some chewy chainsaw taffy. This new missive, Earthly Delights, comes after scrapping two entire full lengths. The doors of Lightning Bolt's practice space literally spill forth giga-liters of sweat born of echo-stretched dedication to archeology of under-standing advanced musicology. Taking the lessons of extreme metal, blood brother marrying them to expansive and explosive song from and applying it to Olympic training methods- Earthly Delightsuses electric stimulus to shock smile technology to worldwide domes. This is what two thousand years of evolution and the invention of electric instrumentation introduced into the tank of hook force can do to you.

Fidelity and attention to tune-smithery are total, so please, dear listener place your alabaster hand in mine and embark on a musical journey that will take you to places both divine and sublime. This record has the sound of a ten piece band with a much tighter pay scale, matched with the sonics of military cartoons. This record is truly the sound of the air show ablaze with the joy of a ground-bound fighter powerless to eject.
