Lightning Bolt

Providence, RI noise-rock duo Lightning Bolt will return to the Bay Area on September 4th, 2012 to once again attempt to melt the Rickshaw Stop into the ground. Along with appearing at the excellent FYF festival in downtown LA, the band is also sharing the bill in Seattle with Rohnert Park hardcore group Ceremony.

The duo has also announced plans to release “lost” songs from 2008 recording sessions as a 12″ and digital release entitled Oblivion Hunter. Keep an eye out for it at the merch table (best to grab one after the show ends, as Lightning Bolt have a tendency to work the crowd into a frenzy).
