IRATA - Sophomore Album Out In October

North Carolina (USA) based trio Irata will release their sophomore album entitled Sweet Loris on Kylesa-founded label, Retro Futurist on 9th October, through digital and CD formats with a vinyl pressing to follow shortly afterward. The band dodges genre barriers with dexterous, infectious grooves influenced by a variety of underground rock and metal scenes. Once an instrumental act, the line-up has shifted from a trio to a duo and back, and following several line-up shifts since their inception eight years ago, the band has solidified things with its most roaring setup yet, proven on their sophomore LP, Sweet Loris, with equal parts kicking and clawing with thunderous doom-inspired uproar as there are tranquil and melodious organic rock segues. With nearly forty minutes of material packed into seven new tracks, Sweet Loris was recorded by Irata at The Jam Room, produced by Phillip Cope and engineered by Cope and Zac Thomas, and the record completed with artwork by Santos and design by Phillip Yeary.
Irata will tour heavily on support of Sweet Loris, beginning by supporting Kylesa on their upcoming Eastern US trek which starts directly in conjunction with the album's release. The fourteen-city run will originate in Saint Petersburg on 6th October, followed by shows in Miami, Orlando, Savannah, Asheville, Columbus, Grand Rapids, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Boston, Philadelphia, Richmond and Washington DC before coming to a halt with its final show in Atlanta on 25th October. Inter Arma and Indian Handcrafts will also supply support for Kylesa in addition to Irata. Link
