|West Australian five piece THE KILL DEVIL HILLS announce the imminent release of their third album, MAN, YOU SHOULD EXPLODE.
The multi award- winning group has spent the best part of 2009 completing their new album with producer Burke Reid (The Drones, Jack Ladder, The Mess Hall), to be released nationally in September 2009.
The first single COCKFIGHTER, a vicerial four minutes of screeched jungle punk that marks a striking new direction in the band’s sound, is on the airwaves now. Listen out for their new single very soon.
“Like The Drones, The Kill Devil Hills have drunk in classic country-rock forms learned from Dylan, The Band and Tom Waits and transmuted them through a distinctly Australian imagination.” Four stars (for their previous album The Drought), Sydney Morning Herald.
The band’s first two releases HEATHEN SONGS (2005) and THE DROUGHT (2007) are both out through Torn and Frayed/ Shock and still selling consistently.
