Kayo Dot Announce Limited Release of New "Stained Glass" EP Out November 26th as Part of Record Store Day's Black Friday

Some bands really do defy easy encapsulation. Kayo Dot make music of a perpetually shifting kind, a writhing, transfiguring sound that possesses elements of prog and jazz and avant-garde composition and art-rock, but inhabits none of them and all of them at once. - Rock-A-Rolla Magazine

Kayo Dot has become a protean entity that draws equally upon goth rock, free jazz, prog, contemporary classical music and much, much more. - Time Out New York

Scenes of rapture, agony, and consecration are arrayed as windows in this latest EP by the avant-rock maestros. With a large ensemble of glimmering malleted percussion, shrieking distorted organs, crystalline guitars, and sighing horns, violins, and vocals, Stained Glass' translucent passages of unearthly beauty set a new standard in soothing terror. Stained Glass features the return of original Kayo Dot lyricist Jason Byron, as well as a guest appearance by electric guitar genius Trey Spruance (Secret Chiefs 3, Mr. Bungle).

* The Stained Glass EP will be see a limited US release date of November 26th as part of Record Store Day's Black Friday, and will see an official worldwide release date of January 11th, 2011 on Hydra Head Records.
