Kick To Kill put the boot in
KICK TO KILL – CUT ME. Single released November 2nd on Flowers In The Dustbin. Available via i-tunes and all major download sites.
Flowers In The Dustbin’s first signing KICK TO KILL are a Glasgow based band, born in the mind of front man Dave Cook. With their dark and raw sound, the band have grown a loyal following in the city as well gaining industry attention and interest.
Signing to Glasgow’s own Flowers In The Dustin in 2007, KICK TO KILL released their debut single ‘Quit Tomorrow’. The single was hailed as “the single best song I’ve heard from a Scottish group in a very long time” by Heaven Or Las Vegas, while Jim Gellatly described KICK TO KILL as “a band that lives up to it’s hype... Really phenomenal” on his XFM show.
KICK TO KILL’s legendary support slots have included sold out nights with The Fall, John Cooper Clarke and A Place To Bury Strangers. The band were also selected by The Damned to play on their Twisted Cabaret tour. Fast forward to the present and KICK TO KILL are back with a new fourth member, Ewen Shearer, and the purest, aggressive, nihilistic rock’n’roll you’re likely to hear this side of Funhouse era Stooges.
The first track to emerge from the dark is ‘Cut Me’, taken from the forthcoming EP scheduled for release early 2010. Engineered and mixed by Dave and Ian Cook (Aerogramme, Twilight Sad), ‘Cut Me’ is released Monday 2nd November on Scotland’s vibrant new indie label Flowers In The Dustbin as a digital download only - www.myspace.com/FlowersInTheDustbin
