Hear Lightning Bolt’s ‘King Candy’ From Their Upcoming ‘Oblivion Hunter’ EP
They return from Hypermagic Mountain on September 25!
Noise-rock titans Lightning Bolt are finally returning after three years of silence with the Oblivion Hunter EP (out on September on Load, natch). The first taste, “King Candy,” leaked today, and fans of the duo’s particular breed of two-man bludgeonry (which includes Muse!) should rejoice. It might just be SoundCloud talking, but it sounds like the pair are reversing courses from a hot decade of slowly becoming more accessible and rock-centric, diving back into the blown-out, trance-inducing, lowest-fi recording of their 1999 debut. Check out the funkdafied, snare-tastic fireworks below!
