Lightning Bolt - Biography



Noise-rock powerhouse Lightning Bolt was founded by Rhode Island School of Design students Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson in 1995. When the band first started, their shows were largely improvisational, until Load Records approached them with the idea of doing an album. In 1999, their self-titled debut appeared.

 

In 2001, Load released Ride the Skies, the duo's second album.Two years later, the band's most accessible release, Wonderful Rainbow, came out. While touring intermittently, the band released Hypermagic Mountain (2005), Earthly Delights (2009), and Oblivion Hunter (2012). Their most recent release is 2015's Fantasy Empire, their first full-length for Thrill Jockey.
