THE ROAD HOME, embodied by Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Noah Landis as well as Munly J Munly, will begin their West Coast tour this Thursday, January 22nd, which will run through Wednesday, February 4th, in support of the outfit’s recent rebirth, and in conjunction, have released a newly re-recorded track.

The title track to SCOTT KELLY AND THE ROAD HOME’s 2012 debut LP, The Forgiven Ghost In Me, the project founded as a solo venture for Kelly, has recently been reinterpreted with the full inclusion of both Landis and Munly, as both now find themselves permanent residents of THE ROAD HOME. Reborn, this anthem now sees the light of day through an exclusive premiere via Cvlt Nation, who offers on the revised rendition of the new rendition, “This haunting track really shows the evolution of the project and showcases the formidable musicians behind its creation.”

As THE ROAD HOME continues to compile new material for the follow up to The Forgiven Ghost In Me, the new lineup will be performing live regularly, which will begin this week on their new West Coast tour. From Thursday, January 22rd through Wednesday, February 4th, they will play in twelve cities throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Washington, including several record store performances. View the confirmed routing below, and watch for more new tour dates and recording updates for THE ROAD HOME in the weeks ahead.

Forged by Neurosis’ founding vocalist/guitarist, Scott Kelly, Neurosis’ keyboard/effects wizard, Noah Landis, has been a part of the project since the creation of SCOTT KELLY AND THE ROAD HOME’s 2012-released debut album, The Forgiven Ghost In Me, providing baritone guitars and keyboards to the record and on stage. Yet, since his role in the outfit has become much more expansive and significant, in both inception and delivery of the tunes, his place in the lineup has therefore become more permanent. Additionally, renowned singer/songwriter Munly J Munly has joined the group in recent months, helping reshape the band’s sound. An iconic folk/country/gospel multi-instrumentalist who has helped shape the contemporary sound of Denver, Munly is part of several current acts, including his own Munly and the Lee Lewis Harlots, as well as Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Denver Broncos UK and others, with releases on Smooch Records, Alternative Tentacles and more, in addition to being an awarded author, and so on.




Additional tour and release news on THE ROAD HOME will be confirmed and announced in the months ahead.

THE ROAD HOME: Scott Kelly Solo Venture Takes New Form With Full-Time Members Noah Landis And J Munly; West Coast Tour Dates Begin Next Week

With the addition of new full-time members, the project forged as SCOTT KELLY AND THE ROAD HOME — orchestrated by Neurosis’ founding guitarist/vocalist, Scott Kelly — has since taken a new form as simply, THE ROAD HOME.

Neurosis’ keyboard/effects wizard, Noah Landis, has been a part of the project since the creation of SCOTT KELLY AND THE ROAD HOME’s 2012-released debut album, The Forgiven Ghost In Me, providing baritone guitars and keyboards to the record and on stage. Yet, since his role in the outfit has become much more expansive and significant, in both inception and delivery of the tunes, his place in the lineup has therefore become more permanent. Additionally, renowned singer/songwriter Munly J Munly has joined the group in recent months, helping reshape the band’s sound.

Issues Kelly of the current state of THE ROAD HOME“We changed the name because with the addition of Munly and Noah's already prominent role in the process it felt that this had become a band of absolutely equal parts in every way. We will be working on new material throughout the year in preparation for a new record.”
As their next recorded chapter comes together, THE ROAD HOME’s new lineup will be playing live whenever possible, beginning with a newly-confirmed Western US tour which begins next week. From Thursday, January 22rd through Wednesday, February 4th, they will traverse through California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Washington with twelve dates confirmed.

Neurot Recordings released SCOTT KELLY AND THE ROAD HOME’s debut outing, The Forgiven Ghost In Me, in August 2012. Dissimilar to his previously-released solo outings, on this recording Kelly sought out additional musicians to help bring his written vision to fruition, recruiting the talents of Greg Dale and Noah Landis, as well as guest contributions from Jason Roeder (Neurosis, Sleep) and Josh Graham (A Storm Of Light, ex-Neurosis). The Forgiven Ghost In Me, flows with over forty minutes of foreboding Americana showcasing the ever-evolving artist brandishing some of Kelly’s most expressive hymns of pain, reflection and redemption to date.

Following tours of North America, Europe and their first trek to Australia earlier this year, the remainder of 2014 will see the band as one of the main headliners at Arizona’s Southwest Terror Fest III: The Western Front.

With only a brief 2008 West Coast venture in the US under their belt, the full-on upcoming tour will see the band spending several weeks stateside, bringing their magical, mysterious and pulverizing doom metal to the masses in support of their acclaimed ORO double-album set, released in 2013, as well as their next full-length release, which the band is currently preparing to record in October for release again through Neurot in early 2015. UFOMAMMUT will also be releasing a massive DVD entitled XV through their own Supernatural Cat Records this October, with more than three hours of material documenting their decade-and-a-half together. The band is also set to perform at Up In Smoke in Pratteln, Switzerland with Fu Manchu, Kadavar, Blues Pills, Brant Bjork, Dozer, Naam, Conan and tons more on October 3rd and 4th.

Oregon’s psychedelic doom metal trio, YOB, is currently embarked on a massive European tour with Pallbearer, supporting their recently-released seventh studio full-length, Clearing The Path To Ascend. The widely lauded album is currently thriving with great accolades pouring in from media outlets and fans worldwide, being recognized as another massive achievement for the now institutional act, and marks one of the most essential extreme albums of the year. Their first release as part of the Neurot family, the album was just released by the label on CD and all digital download, with Relapse Records releasing the vinyl version this week. Following the ongoing five-week voyage which is permeating every corner of the European continent, YOB will tour heavily in North America as well, with new tour dates to be announced in conjunction with their MDF performance in the coming months.
