As Kylesa-founded label, Retro Futurist, prepares Greensboro, North Carolina-based IRATA’s second LP, Sweet Loris, for release in just two weeks, Cvlt Nation releases new single, “March By Tens.” Additional dates have also been added to the band’s upcoming Eastern US tour with Kylesa, Inter Arma and Indian Handcrafts.

The sound of Greensboro, North Carolina-based trio, IRATA, dodges genre barriers with dexterous, infectious grooves influenced by a variety of underground rock and metal scenes. Once an instrumental act, the band has morphed several times since their inception eight years ago, but has solidified a permanent, intense three-piece lineup for their sophomore LP, Sweet Loris, the album recorded by IRATA at The Jam Room, produced by Phillip Cope and engineered by Cope and Zac Thomas, and completed with artwork by Santos and design by Phillip Yeary. With equal amounts of thunderous doom-inspired uproar as there tranquil and melodious organic rock segues, nearly forty minutes of new material is born in these seven new tracks.

Cvlt Nation issues an exclusive new single from Sweet Loris, “March By Tens,” which is one of the standout tracks on the album, raging with ballsy grooves and soaring leads, caustic and clean riffage and multiple vocal styles. Offers the band on the song, “’March By Tens’ is about a person or anyone who thinks they are different, and tries to be so, coming to the realization they are just like everyone else.”

Stream IRATA’s “March By Tens” at Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION.

Kylesa’s Retro Futurist label will release Sweet Loris through digital and CD formats on October 9th with a vinyl pressing to follow shortly afterward. Preorders for the CD are available HERE.
