Watch Lightning Bolt perform The Metal East, Blow To The Head, and USA Is A Psycho live at Le Guess Who? 2019:

Lightning Bolt’s shows are the stuff of myth and legend, unleashing a hailstorm of noise that would leave every venue smoldering in dust and vapors for weeks. Two decades after their acclaimed self-titled LP, that firebrand streak burns as piping hot and surprising as ever. Seventh full-length LP ‘Sonic Citadel’ actually abandons the mask of distortion for more stripped-down, naked pop forms.

Please support the artist: purchase music or merchandise via Thrill Jockey Records.

"Ultimately Lightning Bolts show is an immensely earshattering performance that feels like a kind of party at the end of the world; except everything’s on steroids and we only literally have mere seconds to live so everything has to happen now, right now." - Never Mind The Hype
