Savannah metal sludge-throwers Kylesa are all set to release Ultraviolet, the follow-up to 2010′s Spiral Shadow, on May 28 via Season Of Mist. “Whereas Spiral Shadow was a warm album suggesting concepts of hope, Ultraviolet is a bit colder and darker,” said guitarist Laura Pleasants in a press release for the record. That somber mood can definitely be heard on the new track the band released today, “We’re Taking This.”
 
The brief track has a kinetic, throat-grabbing intensity to it, but the band also makes room for a few vaguely psychedelic digressions. Philip Cope provides vocals for the song and sounds pretty pissed as he yells, “What comes around comes back around.” Catch the group as they go on the road this summer. The complete dates can be seen below, along with the new jam “We’re Taking This.”
