The American experimental noise-rock 2-piece are back with their seventh album and follow-up to 2015's Fantasy Empire. Brian Chippendale (drums and vocals) and Brian Gibson (bass) have never sounded more alive on Sonic Citadel as they smash and crash their way through sonic structures that build and build and then crumble right before your ears! Lightning Bolt by name and by nature!

"For their seventh full length, ‘Sonic Citadel’, Brians Gibson and Chippendale have done the daring, stripping away some of the distortion mask to reveal the naked pop forms as never before. Throughout their 25-year history Lightning Bolt have toured the world, performing at Coachella, ATP, Festivals, Pitchfork Music Festival, Austin Psych Fest and FYF Fest, to name a few. Brian Chippendale has collaborated with Björk, Boredoms, Andrew W.K. and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Brian’s comics are published with Drawn & Quarterly and Picturebox. Brian is also in Black Pus. Brian Gibson’s game Thumper, produced by his own company Drool, was awarded the 2019 Apple Design Award, was on Gamespot, Hardcore Gamer and IDN’s Best Of 2016 lists and won countless other awards."
