Kaura recently released their new album, That Which Defines Us, on September 20th, 2011. Produced by singer Malcolm Guess, That Which Defines Us is a testament of dedication, taking over two years to record with the assistance of rock luminaries such as Sylvia Massey (Tool, System of a Down, Danzig), Ken Andrews (Failure, A Perfect Circle) and Michael Romanowski (Dredg). Central to the album's sound were instruments that the band collected on their travels to India, Thailand, Bali, Cambodia, Laos, and Nepal.
Kaura (pronounced kay-aura) were born from the vision of infusing the aggressive power of hard, melodic rock with the haunting and ethereal sounds of ancient instruments. "We were really drawn to the sounds of these instruments because they are not traditionally heard in modern rock music," explains guitarist Ben Rojas. Drummer Benjamin Jones adds, "We have always strived to create our own unique voice and incorporating these instruments helps us do that and create a really expansive depth of sound."
