Biography

kidnapkin [kid:nap:kin]:1 a highly volatile experiment created by three very mad scientists.

THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!

KID:NAP:KIN will change the way you like your rock. Stop listening in vain for your next fix, the pounding odd-meter rhythms and jazz-infused melodies that make your soul turn, come from KID:NAP:KIN. Boston’s Aggro Indie Assault has been making a name for themselves on the scene for two and a half years. Look around at your next K:N:K show and see the audience hang on every note and you will understand why this is the biggest Buzz Band in Boston. Singer/Guitarist Daniel Ellis’ soulful vocals wail over the crashing Bonham-esque drumming of Patrick Hanlin, while bassist Jamila Weaver rounds out this power trio with a deep pocket that reminds the listener of what feverish, intense rock music should sound like; "...best suited for the intellectually-inclined headbanger, rock-'n'roller, punk rocker, or anyone who just prefers their music loud," (Northeast Performer) KID:NAP:KIN released their debut EP, ‘Touring The Riot Scene’ in December 2006 on Sidehatch Entertainment. Since the EP hit stores, KID:NAP:KIN has toured the country jumping on the Best Of Emergenza national tour, two shows at SXSW, were invited to play at CMJ in New York City and the Boston WBCN Rumble, this mighty three-piece is set to be Boston's next great success. Most recently, the band took home "Best New Act" at the 2007 Boston Music Awards and are set to release their new CD produced by Mike Cosgrove of Alien Ant Farm in April 2008.

Resume: 2 SXSW performances (2007), CMJ performance (2007), Boston Music Award (Best New Act, 2007), "Touring the Riot Scene" recorded by Mike Poorman (Ex-Hot Rod Circuit drummer: Piebald, Receiving End of Sirens, Therefore I Am), currently produced by Mike Cosgrove (of Alien Ant Farm: The Rivalry, The Urgency).

KID:NAP:KIN has played with Hopesfall (TrustKill), 2 Live Crew, Enter Shikari (UK), Cool Hand Luke (Tooth and Nail), Big D and the Kids Table, Vanna (Epitaph), Army of Me (Doghouse), and the Click 5.

Lyrics

Invalid Teratoma

Written By: kid:nap:kin

Keep on the right side of falling
The sulfur aches
Accounting for the pressure
Casket's full
She cries for her babe, screaming insane
Feeling so volitile in denial, no longer full

Keep on the left side and forfeit
Five weeks toll
And counting on December
On the floor when
She cries for her babe, screaming insane
Feeling so volitile for nevermore, no longer full

Trust you denial

Reading in to your abilities to free your self
Collect your failures and put em' in a jar, to take them in to your love stained heart

I, Mantiklos

Written By: kid:nap:kin

Cover up, you need my advise
It's so cold without the likes of me around
Cocaine, has nothing on me
Praised by myself, I've got what you need

Come down, please, we'll help you off your (stand) stand by me

Left alone where nothing could survive
Agreeable provisions left from motherhood behind
They'll hold me up, identified, bring hands around to help me try
Worship me in time you'll find we're better off together

Check your pulse, they're different than we are
It must be cold when you can't see like me
Call it hate, won't you please feign beauty
Attempting to assimilate, you're locked out now, thrown on your knees

The hammer stroke leaves one life lost, but I'm still laughing
Reject before rejection holds my new found fear
What will we get from subtle lies bereft of aptitude for
Fresh from martyrdom, reeled in as a puppet would
To fight is blind, you're souless, black, but aren't we devine?

Soap box level with one thought, fight against this, against us
Crease the line up with four walls to encase us, encasue us

(Lovely Day For A) Parade

Written By: Daniel Ellis

I'll hide in case these flailing arms and blood lined scars give eyes a raise
A souvenir, lift up and off, mute sounds of love, and amputate
Overcome with pain, serrated, drawn and baited, softer

Crawl over the seated king and others until someone will cover their faces when they hear your fearless parade come and crash down before the tears reach your face

Bring hands to touch, caress you here, it's better than the underlying
Call out to hear the echoes of an empty touch, now underlined
Overcame, fooled and taken, choked and falling out

If words can tell me all I need to know about you then I'll cut off the face of reason and cover you here
Crashed down before the tears reach your lips
