NEW RELEASE. Kayo Dot. BlasphemyNew York's melancholy collective Kayo Dot have signed to Prophecy Productions.

“I’m very happy and optimistic about working with Prophecy going forward. We’re extremely excited to have this opportunity to bring our music to a wider audience and contribute to this universe in a positive, unique, and progressive way, and we thank Prophecy and everyone involved for believing in us, and we thank Jonathan at The Flenser for encouraging us to make this move.”
- Toby Driver (Kayo Dot)

Prophecy Productions has entered into partnership with mercurial melancholy collective,Kayo Dot. The endlessly eclectic project, spearheaded by composer and producer Toby Driver, was formed in 2003 by the members of the legendary aethereal metal band, maudlin of the Well, marking a giant-inspired evolutionary leap. Since then, Kayo Dot’s muse has shown its face through slow and massive cascades of guitars and violins, and soundscapes spanning from “Bitches Brew”-inspired tripped-out goth fusion to hyper-fast, angular & atonal suicidal black metal.

From their beginnings in Boston and shortly after to New York City, Kayo Dot’s members and collaborators come from a huge range of backgrounds; DIY punk kids to the most erudite conservatory-educated New York performing musicians. Frontman Toby Driver's list of collaborators includes names like Randall Dunn (WITTR, Myrkur, Sunn 0))),Secret Chiefs 3 (Trey Spruance of Mr. Bungle), John Zorn, and G. Stuart Dahlquist(Burning Witch, Asva), among many others. His solo works include collaborations withBrian Chase of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, as well as his touring outfit Piggy Black Cross. The diversity of his collaborators feeds Kayo Dot’s ability to wind, twist, and leave you wanting with no ceiling on how it will evolve, while creating sounds that are both timeless and contemporary.

Now fifteen years on, Kayo Dot’s forthcoming album, Blasphemy, once again based on an allegorical story by Jason Byron and produced by Randall Dunn (who helmed KD’s HubardoCoyote, and Blue Lambency Downward), is Kayo Dot’s most forthright statement ever, directly confronting the world at-hand, foregoing the encouraged escapism found ubiquitously throughout the rest of Kayo Dot’s catalogue, and embracing the perspective a band in such a rare position as this can bring. 
 
On signing with Prophecy, Driver has this to say; “I’m very happy and optimistic about working with Prophecy going forward. In the past few years my experiences have, in many ways, brought my musical life full-circle to the scene I began in with maudlin of the Well, having dipped out and in throughout time. Kayo Dot has in our career, due to our unclassifiable nature, been able to exist in several different scenes at once and every few years we explore one scene, then explore another, these seemingly disparate communities that are now increasingly mixing. We’ve always felt like outsiders, however. Forming a relationship with Prophecy and also becoming more closely connected with some of the major players in the European metal scene has brought up a lot of feelings that, although I haven’t engaged with in many years, still feel like home and family. We’re extremely excited to have this opportunity to bring our music to a wider audience and contribute to this universe in a positive, unique, and progressive way, and we thank Prophecy and everyone involved for believing in us, and we thank Jonathan at The Flenser for encouraging us to make this move.”

Kayo Dot will be appearing at Prophecy Fest USA.
