For The Kill / Bio

For The Kill is a polished song/live performance hard rock music unit from Long Island. Its members have been seen in various bands and venues over the years. Joe came from Mindless Sanity. Tommy came from Mansrea. Frank came from Kindread. The Count is a mysterious fellow who kept time for Wardance (and was paramount in Frank’s early music career).

Three of the four performed in the local melodic groove metal sensation Constricted. It was during the many high profile shows with Constricted that the seeds for this new project were sown. Constricted shared the stage with Testament, King’s X, The Misfits, Fozzy, Helloween, Life of Agony, Ill Nino, Shadows Fall, Nuclear Assault and Brand New Sin. Joe and Frank were in the line up for a portion of the Jagermeister tour, which featured The Autumn Offering, Bobaflex and Soil.

Joe, Frank and Tommy decided that For The Kill must happen one day. In early 2011, they began writing and rehearsing in Tommy’s basement. These sessions featured Tommy on drums, Joe on guitar and Frank on bass and vocals. 2012 brought some internal shifting as Tommy took over bass duties. The search for a timekeeper was brief. The Count was available and interested.

The Count cemented the line up and For The Kill was released into the world in which they wish to become a household name. The band is still essentially a hard rock band. The Count adds a slightly progressive edge. They have been featured in The Exposed Music Festival at Trash Bar in Brooklyn. They will also be featured at The Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles on September 14, 2013 (a Saturday night!). You will be able to find For The Kill’s upcoming release on all digital download sites (yes, every single one) in the late Fall or early Winter of 2013. There will also very likely be Drop Cards featuring download codes at For The Kill’s live shows.
