Lightning Bolt King Candy, Lightning Bolt Tour DatesWith nearly 20 years under its belt, Rhode Island’s guerrilla noise duo Lightning Bolt is set to release Oblivion Hunter, a collection of recording sessions spanning the last couple of years, via Load Records. Though the album will not be released until September 25, the band has released a sneak peak of what to expect on it by the name of “King Candy.”
 
This first track from the record features an urgent and rumbling rhythm section under a swirling, distorted guitar and faint vocals and it’s probably best listened to with the volume turned all the way up. Check it out below with dates from Lightning Bolt’s tour, which kicks off tonight in DC.
