Kayo Dot to premiere Stained Glass EP in NYC with Cleric

Experimental-rock ensemble Kayo Dot will be performing in New York City on August 24, 2010 at Bowery Electric, where the band will play two sets previewing material from its upcoming EP, Stained Glass, which will be released on Hydra Head in November.

Kayo Dot’s last release, Coyote, has been dubbed “gothic fusion” through its combination of melodramatic influences from Faith and the Muse and the rhythmic challenges presented by Herbie Hancock.

Stained Glass will consist of one long composition of the same title and will feature the lineup of Coyote, plus vibraphonist Russell Greenberg, who has been a part of Hi-Red Center and Yarn/Wire.

The NYC concert will also include the insane, atmospheric tech-metal band Cleric and the heavy, bluesy riffs of Bad Girlfriend (the good Bad Girlfriend from New York, not the bad Bad Girlfriend from New York).

Cleric just debuted its first LP, Regressions, on Mimicry earlier this year, presenting a musically complex, progressive metal album with an apocalyptic tone.
