Members of the queer-fronted pop-punk quartet, Kiss Kill, joined forces in 2008 with the common goal of creating intense, honest rock tunes. Operating out of Portland, OR the group has spent the past year gigging and building a fan base across the Northwest. With their new album recorded by Backline Records, the four show no signs of stopping. Though glimmers of 'training' and 'talent' may slip through from time to time (purely by accident of course), Kiss Kill has a sound that comes straight from the indignant, abused heart of rock n' roll itself. Michelle Leigh (vox and electric violin) and Dusti Outlaw (bass) write and perform with an intimacy found only between lovers - and yet the music absolutely refuses to sacrifice all of the raw tension that makes your filthy heart race. The group's on-stage presence is complete with Jeff's shrieking, self-indulgent guitar solos and with Troy providing his thunderous rhythm on the skins. At times reminiscent of everything from classic Veruca Salt right up to the current Paramore sensation, the group has forged it's own sound cherry-picking aspects of punk, 80s hair metal, and melodic pop rock. The results can be as sweet and delicate as a gentle kiss or as dark and grim as the reaper himself. For fear or love, grab onto someone and fall into the abysmal romance of Kiss Kill.
