Gritty...hard...knuckles-up punk rock! Killing California are a totally mean and ominus sounding band that don't bother with pretensions or pop-punk B.S., you will be fully exhausted after just one listening !!!

Biography

Killing California began in January of 2004 in the Southern Orange County beach town of San Clemente, Ca. The band set out to shake up the poppy Beach blvd. sound Orange County is typically known for by going for a revved up, dirtier, grittier approach.

Void of your clich├ęd punk fashion the band used its thick guitars, intense vocals and rock-n-roll swagger to develop a unique sound not only to Orange County but to punk rock music in general.

With their blue collar DIY work ethic, the band has been fortunate to build on one gig after the other, priding themselves on an intense live show which has lead to a loyal following, a steady tour schedule and numerous opening spots with national acts including: TSOL, CLUTCH, SIXER, ADOLESCENTS, THE DISTILLERS, DI, SMOGTOWN, DR. KNOW, JFA, THE CROWD, ASG, NARCOLEPTIC YOUTH, CH3, SMUT PEDDLERS, and many, many more.

Focusing on the aspects of their sound that has differentiated them from others since the beginning. Their two guitar attack showcases hardcore intensity with rock-no roll groove while the in your face vocals are delivered with honest punk rock introspection.

With a new batch of songs, their best material to date, the band is gearing up to hit the road this coming fall in support of the new album.

For fans of.....ZEKE, TSOL, MOTORHEAD & BLACK FLAG

Lyrics

Dagger Practice

Written By: Danny Craig

It's time, time to cut the chord- this parachutes got holes and I'm headed for the floor She says, the war is in your head- whiskey is the
reason that your walking at my door

Please don't let them take me away

This is all there's ever been, I bottle up these sins I was raised to never let them see the real me

My friends, like to drink alot- an anxiety attack that's alway on your back At night, when it's time to cut the lights- this rooms an ugly friend throwing daggers at my back

Texas is the reason that the presidents dead She says, it must be your family tree- because I don't
want to leave, especially at a time like this Hold on, stop the fucking press- we are the same just getting through this mess

Goin' South

Written By: Danny Craig

Pull the hat out of the reptiles mouth tell that motherfucker to go back south rally around the preacher, scream and shout
this is what the bad men all talk about

Back in 45' at the end of road in the shadow of death there stood a man with a gun in his hand and a fighting chance

He licked his lips he laughed out loud it all comes down to the last round Kick up your heels, roll up your sleeves it may be the last time that you ever see me

65 years of hair pin turns, you finally need a straight away
Full speed ahead and bury your dead, the tide is a rising

Song In A

Written By: Danny Craig

We need to hang up, we need to unwind We need to be alive all of the time We need to rewrite, we need to let go We need to understand this is the end of the road

I know I've been wrong-knew it all along I hope you understand why I sing this song

We need to untie, we need to wonder why We need to be alive all of the time We need to rewrite, we need to unload We need to understand this is the end of the road
