In addition to his work with The Autumns, Kelly made an appearance on all three albums of the experimental rock band the Sound of Animals Fighting, providing vocals on "Act II: All is Ash or the Light Shinning Through It", "My Horse Must Lose", "The Heretic", and "On the Occasion of Wet Snow". Kelly also performed with the band during their four live performances throughout California, and appeared on their live DVD We Must Become the Change We Want to See.

During "This Heat", Kelly, along with Anthony Green, Craig Owens, and Bradley Bell, danced on stage, dressed in identical masks and black cloaks.
