lightningbolt oblivionep New Music: Lightning Bolt   King Candy

On September 25th, Rhode Island noise-rock duo Lightning Bolt will release a rarities collection entitled Oblivion Hunter via Load Records. The seven-track effort collects “lost” cuts recorded in 2008 and will be available digitally and on 12″ vinyl. The five-minute opener “King Candy” is pure, overwhelming dissonance, manically combining heavy drums, distorted vocals, and heaps of fuzz that detonate with the power of a noise-rock A-bomb.

In support of the effort, the band will be on the road throughout the fall, starting tonight in Washington, DC. Check out the pair’s full itinerary following the EP tracklist.

Oblivion Hunter EP Tracklist:
01. King Candy
02. Baron Wasteland
03. Oblivion Balloon
04. Fly Fucker Fly
05. The Soft Spoken Spectre
06. Salamander
07. World Wobbly Wide
