did the old thread get deleted? I can't find it. Who cares anyway, because...

Boston-born, and now New York City-based veteran avant-metallers KAYO DOT, led by Toby Driver, are set to hit the studio for their 7th album, Hubardo, this April. This album will mark the 10-year anniversary of KAYO DOT's debut and landmark release, Choirs of The Eye, and the band will trek out to Avast Studios in Seattle, Washington, with producer RANDALL DUNN (SunnO))), Wolves In The Throne Room, Black Mountain) returning to the helm.

Hubardo is an approximately 90-minute conceptual epic double-album, with story and lyrics written by longtime lyricist and former MAUDLIN OF THE WELL vocalist, Jason Byron. Musically, the album covers the spectrum of all of the band's works, from the sparse doomy elements of Choirs of The Eye, to the blast-beat, woodwind-driven Gamma Knife, the chorus-bass goth fusion of Coyote, and even lush orchestrated prog moments harkening back to the days of their previous band, MAUDLIN OF THE WELL, and, as with all the band's releases, Driver and Co. venturing into new territory. The album sees a returning cast of characters with Toby Driver on Bass, Keys, Guitars and Vocals, Terran Olson on Keys and Woodwinds, Daniel Means on Woodwinds and Synth, Mia Matsumiya on violin, Tim Byrnes on Trumpet and Horn in F, the first proper studio recording with Keith Abrams on drums, and the first recording contribution of longtime live collaborator Ron Varod on Guitar. Hubardo will also feature a very special guest vocal appearance by Jason Byron - his first recorded appearance since MAUDLIN OF THE WELL's 2001 albums, Bath and Leaving Your Body Map.

This album will be self-released on the band's own imprint, ICE LEVEL MUSIC, and pre-orders will be taken to help fund the recording and travel costs. Pre-Orders will be offered in 3xLP Deluxe, Standard, and Digital-only editions, featuring limited 200g colored vinyl in a triple gatefold (6 huge panels of artwork), a 5-chapter poem by Jason Byron entitled The Sword Of Satan, signed poster, T-shirt, guitar pick, and sticker. The Pre-Order system is now LIVE at http://kayodot.bigcartel.com

Here is the track listing for the album:

  • 1. The Black Stone (~7:00)
    2. Crown-In-The-Muck (~9:00)
    3. Thief (~5:30)
    4. Vision Adjustment To Another Wavelength (~5:00)
    5. Zodelida Caosaji (To Water The Earth) (~6:00)
    6. The First Matter (Saturn In The Guise Of Sadness) (~9:30)
    7. The Second Operation (Lunar Water) (~10:30)
    8. Floodgate (~7:00)
    9. And He Built Him A Boat (~7:00)
    10. Passing The River (~8:00)
    11. The Wait Of The World (~18:00)
The Pre-Order system is now LIVE at http://kayodot.bigcartel.com and the records will be limited to 300 copies for the Deluxe Edition and 200 copies for the Standard Edition. Hubardo is slated for a fall 2013 release to coincide with Kayo Dot's tenth anniversary.

Thanks for reading, and for your continued support!

Toby Driver on behalf of Kayo Dot.

just saw toby post this on facebook. preordered the deluxe version as soon as i read the description :drool: just hope the shirts aren't too small

and yeah i noticed that they had times for all the tracks but then realized nothing's been recorded yet. guess they've already got the material jammed out and are just waiting to record it. i feel like toby was just looking for a new rehearsal spot just a few weeks ago though

you've changed pixiesfan. aint those BLD art prints not doing it for you anymore?

The DELUXE PACKAGE will include:

• The 3xLP album in on 200-gram colored vinyl. The records will come housed in a hand-numbered, triple gatefold package featuring all-new original artwork by Toby Driver. Limited edition of 300.

• A classy printed version of "The Sword Of Satan," a five-chapter, brand new (but ten years in the making) poem by lyricist Jason Byron, which illuminates some of Kayo Dot's lyrical content of the past decade.

• An 11"x17" signed poster (featuring artwork from the record and signed by the band)

• A T-shirt featuring the band's logo and new artwork

• A guitar pick featuring Kayo Dot's logo.

• A sticker with artwork from the record.


don't think that's bad for $50, just the postage which is absolutely bollock-breaking. will basically buy whatever they put out tho

probably using the pre-order funds to actually make it, kind of a cool idea if thats what he's going for. sell the idea, then give out the product.
