The New Danger was created in 2009 by Zach "Holiday" Alkana on the guitar & vocals and Lloyd Knox as the percussionist and emcee. The band is influenced by Jimi Hendrix, John Frusante, Mos Def, Nas, The Black Keys and many others
Born in West Covina, Zach moved to Victorville, CA at the age of 11. His father played a large role in young Zach learning the guitar. Although he learned to play his first song at the age of 12, he didn't pick up the guitar seriously until he became a high school student.
Lloyd Knox fell in love with hip hop at the age of 10. Listening to the artists Tupac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. But it wasn't until he heard Nas' "Nas is like" and Mos Def's "Ms. Fat Booty" that he truly became consumed by the music and the culture. The emcee began to play the drums in late 2011. Soon after, he played his first show.
The New Danger is currently hard at work creating their first studio album, BlackHoodieBlues, set to release in the summer of 2014
