Happy Monday, readers!
Meet our new Music Monday artist this week, The Karma Killers.
Hailing from New Jersey, The Karma Killers — Micky James (vocal/guitar), Mango (bass/vocals), Billy Stevens (guitar/vocals) and Josh Grigsby (drums) — are a fairly new alternative-rock group that is heavily influenced by classic rock, punk rock, and soul, which has guided them to creating their alternative sound, described by them as “night pop.”
Earlier this year, the band dropped a record titled Strange Therapy EP, which features their new track “Domino,” “Coming of Age,” “Go Go,” “My Killer Queen,” and “Tight Rope.” This summer, the band performed on all 41 dates on the 21st Annual Vans Warped Tour and released a music video for “Domino,” which features singer/guitarist Micky James driving through downtown LA in a 1968 Mercury Monterey. “Shooting the video for ‘Domino’ was a thrill” Micky said. “It was a little nerve-wracking getting lost driving in a 1968 Mercury Monterey around downtown LA. Driving around the city aimlessly was beautiful. Those specific shots that were captured are some of my favorite moments of the video. Very pleased with the outcome.”
Currently, the band is out on the road performing songs off Strange Therapy EP during their “Strange Therapy” headlining tour which runs through mid-October. Beginning October 19th, they will be supporting The Struts for select dates on their fall tour.
CelebSecrets4U caught up with Micky, Mango, Billy and Josh recently to talk all things music! In our interview, the guys tell us about their exclusive “night pop” sound, how Strange Therapy EP came together, and their favorite memories from Vans Warped Tour. They even revealed some silly hidden talents about themselves — make sure to watch the video below!
