Haunting yet beautiful growls emanate from the band’s two lead […]

One thing you need to know is that like many great bands that have stuck around for a decade or more, Kylesa defies convention, categorization and they are constantly evolving. This individualism, among other places, can also be found as an ongoing theme in the lyrics of Kylesa’s two core, founding members, Phillip Cope and […]

5GB Interview: Jacuzzi Boys; Playing the EARL Saturday, June 8th!

[ 0 ] June 7, 2013 |

By Jhoni Jackson As far as bands on Instagram go, Jacuzzi Boys (@jacuzziboys) are among the best. Well, maybe enviable is more accurate.
