Reading thrash band Sylosis hold a special place in our hearts. As well as releasing their newest album Monolith only the week before we ourselves launched, their guitarist Alex Bailey actually built the damn thing, and is one hell of a laugh, as well as being a talented bloke.
The band are currently on tour in the states with the legendary Lamb Of God on an absolutely monster trek that will see them gone from Blighty until Christmas. Bailey has thus far managed to avoid any debilitating injuries (he previously broke his arm on tour with As I Lay Dying, Of Mice & Men, The Ghost Inside and IWrestledabearonce after an incident involving a flag pole), and the band have kindly been updating the world with their progress via video diaries, the first two of which can be seen below.
The tour, also featuring In Flames and Hellyeah, is currently making its way up the east coast of America. Go support them if you can!
