For Burlington-based rock band Kill No Albatross, their new EP “Speak True Evil” is a definitive statement. The record is at once dynamic and cohesive, blending the accessibility of rock, the technicality of prog, and the energy of hardcore through intelligent songwriting, creative guitar work, and emotional intensity.
KNA will be supporting the release with a Canadian summer tour run that includes a coveted slot on the Vans Warped Tour. The band will be bringing their signature wild energy to every stage along the way – just hold on for the ride.
The band released their debut EP, “Lost in Darkness and Distance”, in May 2017. Bolstered by a live performance on CHCH television and tour stops in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa, 2017 saw the beginning of KNA’s amassment of a devoted fanbase. 2018 started with a bang, as the band performed as part of Canadian Music Week and shared stages with notable acts including Picturesque, Sarah Longfield, Archspire, and SECRETS.
“Speak True Evil” sees the band expanding the dynamics of their unique sound, traversing softer and heavier territory without compromising the meticulousness they are becoming known for. The EP was recorded at the world-class Metalworks Studios with producer Wayne Cochrane (Alexisonfire, Protest the Hero) and mastered by Scott Lake (Cancer Bats, Dead and Divine). It also features gorgeous original artwork hand-drawn by London, England-based illustrator Niall Grant. KNA will also be working with Jon Asher of Asher Media Relations on album and tour promotion.
Kyle, Josh, Alex, Alex, and Glenn are incredibly excited to release their boldest statement yet, tour their home country, and expand their growing fanbase.
“Attention grabbing tracks that can gain the respect of discerning music critics while still grabbing the ears of more casual rock fans... Lost in Darkness and Distance already shows the band has a grip on balancing the heavy, the melodic, and the technical.”
— Donte Montgomery, The Haystack Music
"A sound I really enjoy... I love the song Eos."
— Mat Boiselle, 102.1 The Edge & 91.7 Erin Radio
"Ontario’s Kill No Albatross is one of “those” bands. The rockers, whose most recent EP Lost in Darkness and Distance dropped about 5 weeks ago, are well on their way to getting some early attention... certainly a band you will want to keep an eye on in the near future."
— Bradley Dillon, The New Fury
"Kill No Albatross has a meticulously crafted collection of progressive alternative rock with a strong cerebral element... they can seriously play."
