Kiss Me Deadly
Kiss Me Deady

With David Lynch-esque noirish melodies, Kiss Me Deadly makes you feel like you've walked into some mysterious and dark world filled with seductive harmonies, raspy guitars, raw beats and a whole lot of attitude.  With the fun sounds of swamp rock and the vintage colorful sounds of what you would expect from pulp fiction novels, their music plays like the soundtrack to classic gangster films.  

The Cleveland trio, consisting of Jen Poland, Madelyn Hayes and Evan Lieberman just dropped their highly anticipated debut album What You Do In The Dark (via Kingswood Records) and it recalls a time when music was best heard in clubs, before the internet, television and above all - no auto-tune.  It's a welcomed flashback. 

And to celebrate their release, Kiss Me Deadly has announced a 2-week, 15-city North American tour beginning this Saturday (6/27) in their hometown of Cleveland and then hit major cities like New York, Boston, Toronto, Montreal and Philadelphia before finishing off back in Cleveland on July 11th.
