“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.”
KILL NO ALBATROSS
Genre: Rock, Alternative
Hometown: Burlington, ON

Sounds Like: Alter Bridge, Breaking Benjamin
Fronted by the energetic dynamism of vocalist Kyle Collins, Kill No Albatross delivers a brand of rock music sui generis, blending technical instrumentation, reflective lyricism, and a wildly energetic stage show.
The band was born on October 6, 2016, when Kyle e-mailed an audition tape to an as-of-then nameless instrumental four-piece. After welcoming Kyle to the fold, the quintuplet wrote three songs, which proved strong enough to entice producer Wayne Cochrane (Protest the Hero, Alexisonfire, Cancer Bats) on board. Working with Wayne, the songs were refined and rehearsed (over, and over, and over) and, two months later, they were recorded at Mississauga's Metalworks Studios.
The band will celebrate the release of their debut EP - Lost in Darkness and Distance - with a Canadian tour, including a headlining slot at Toronto's Lee's Palace and features on CHCH television, Y108 radio, and 91.7 Erin FM.

"Kill No Albatross has a meticulously crafted collection of progressive alternative rock with a strong cerebral element... they can seriously play."
— Ric Taylor, VIEW Magazine
"A sound I really enjoy... I love the song Eos."
— Mat Boiselle, 102.1 The Edge & 91.7 Erin Radio
"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
