THE KILL DEVIL HILLS

6 piece country, swampy blues band !

Western Australia is a strange part of the world, and so is its music. The birthplace of the Scientists, the Triffids, The Hoodoo Gurus, and later Tame Impala, and the Drones, just to name a few. Squeezed between the textures of the Indian Ocean and the nearby desert, seasoned with the trashy ennui of a rising suburbia, shiny new 4WDs and meth labs abound....

 

The Kill Devil Hills arose from this dubious landscape in the early 2000s, and now almost 15 years into their existence, the band returns to Europe with a fresh new slab of musical meat, PINK FIT, a 32 minute, 6-track menagerie recorded over three days in January 2018. Loaded with the sonically twisted garage-swamp-blues for which the band is renowned, there are also more experimental delvings into new and stranger territories. All in all, it's a stunning snapshot of a band stretching itself further than ever before, bones snapping, skin taut....

 

The first taste of PINK FIT will hit the air streams in April, with the album released by Bang! records in May on vinyl/digital. The Kill Devil Hills will return for their third European tour in June, with dates throughout France and Spain.

 

An entrancing, visceral, emotive, sensual and usually fucking loud live act, this is one of those special Australian-mutant bands that only remote continents can cough up, a species confined to islands, fever-dreams, and occasionally to strut the stage a while. Catch them out!
