exilesIt’s been a busy year for the psychedelic hard-rock band Exiles, playing at South by Southwest last spring and opening for major-label metal bands the Aristocrats and Windhand over the summer. In September, bassist Robert Cox produced the band’s recent EPWreck, which is available on Bandcamp. Sean Chaucer Levine’s guitar provides a solid, heavy background for frontman Flip Arkulary’s vocals. Mitch Miller holds it all together on drums. If this band has its way, its doom metal show will incorporate live eels and dead bats. Exiles is currently working on another EP. According to Arkulary, “We’re thinking about calling it Suck but Inner Beauty Pageant is another title idea.”
