Lightning Bolt

This post is dedicated exclusively to Rhode Island duo of insanity, Lightning Bolt. Here’s some news that just about everyone who likes chaos in music cares about: Lightning Bolt just announced tour dates and a new EP of old things.

If you’ve never seen them perform, you should snatch up tickets for this next tour before they sell out, as they are bound to do. And if these video samples below aren’t enough to convince you, or if the music just isn’t your bag of chips, know that it doesn’t even fucking matter. Watching Lightning Bolt is a transcendental experience of some other variety. Read this live show review to understand the benefits of throwing yourself in the midst of such refined and controlled chaos.

Coinciding with the tour (full dates below) will be a release of “lost” materials from 2008, entitled Oblivion Hunter. Full tour dates below, along with videos of their live performances, and the EP’s first single, the predictably insane “King Candy”.
