Killola announces US tour, racks up 30,000+ album downloads, offers up exclusive MP3 and free DVD.

“Teaching quirky ‘80s new wave pop hooks how to stomp glitter-rock-style, I Am The Messer just might pack as many eccentric but indelible melodic and rhythmic twists into its 10 songs as any rock record this year” – Chuck Eddy (Village Voice, Billboard Magazine)

Killola is three boys and one girl, making rock music out of Los Angeles, California. The band’s brand of garage pop (described as “Blondie for the 21st Century” or a derivation thereof by many) enjoys an internet presence that can best be described as ‘cultish’ with 1.5 million MySpace plays from over 80,000 friends, many of whom add the band’s familiar “K))” symbol to their screen names as a show of allegiance. Others go as far as to tattoo themselves with the band’s logo. Don’t believe it? Believe it! See HERE.

The bands says, “We’ll often send a random message to people who have the “K))” in their [screen] name and out of nowhere tell them they’re in the top peeps. They get all stoked, it’s pretty sweet. Four kids showed up to our Chicago gig with K)) tattoos, that made our day.”

Obviously, Killola is quickly developing a reputation for bowling over just about everyone its music and live show comes into contact with.

And there’s more! Since signing a deal with True Anthem, a new digital distribution company specializing in free downloadable albums through strategic brand sponsorships, Killola’s latest album I Am The Messer has notched 30,000 downloads in its first two months of distribution. Also, Killola self-booked its own UK tour (12 shows in 12 days) and U.S. Tour (27 shows in 32 days) and the band shows no signs of slowing down with another tour of the United States and England lined up for April 2009. The M.O.B. Agency didn’t want to miss out on the fun, so the elite outfit responsible for booking No Doubt and Gwen Stefani, Fountains of Wayne, Joan Jett, Girl In A Coma and others recently signed Killola to their tight roster of touring bands.
