An innovative and eclectic clash of styles. Kings at party!

Biography

The world more than ever seems to be on the verge of destruction - politicians seek remedies in war and ever growing industries hold climate and nature in a firm stranglehold. So what do people need more than ever? Right, a party!
It's long past midnight and the long-awaited party has finally arrived: It's the Dutch rock n' roll beast Malkovich. This charismatic five-piece has already shocked crowds all over Europe and even the US during a winning streak of over 300 shows until now, including appearances at such huge festivals as Fury Fest, CMJ, Groezrock or Noorderslag. Their unconventional and uncommon approach to making loud music has already gained them a serious following. From their first self-titled EP to the debut full-length "A Criminal Record" Malkovich has progressed from a chaotic hardcore band to a fully grown rock monster fusing elements of punk, metal, rock and jazz into an original sound of their own.
The new album "Kings n' Bosses", to be released through Go-Kart Records in late April 2007, proves that the band has matured and diversified even more. The album contains 12 catchy and dynamic tracks revolving around one single theme: PARTY! Lyrically, you do not have to worry about the group having lost its sense of urgency, however, they have chosen to voice it in a new and unorthodox manner while still holding a mirror to itself and the world surrounding it. 2007 might be the "1999" that Prince was dreaming of, so let's party before we're out of time. And, yeah, it's true what they say, there ain't no party like a Malkoholic party!
