The Joy Kills


Band Rock Punk




"In The Neighborhood"

"The Joy Kills are a breath of fresh air. They sound so fresh, yet so familiar. A blast from the past, but current. I’ve listened to hundreds of Rock bands in and out of Atlanta, and for some reason they ALL sound like that [insert generic band name] that we all listened to in 9th grade. These guys broke that mold and ate it for breakfast." -


"This band is a Red Bull-and-vodka with a shot of high octane gasoline, hailing from Atlanta and with its own smash-up of shred-worthy punk rock and dirty blues. The four-piece band throws nothing but fastballs, channeling Queens of the Stone Age while paying homage to ’70s rock a la the New York Dolls and The Stooges. The Joy Kills are going for more than just high-voltage rock ‘n’ roll with an edge. They want electrifying arena-pop-rock glory: a rush of blood to the head. " - Freetimes

The Joy Kills are an up and coming rock n' roll band that just escaped from your real dad's vinyl collection. Hailing from Atlanta GA, this four-piece is best described as a mixture of heavy blues and proto-punk: Think Black Sabbath sexes Jay Reatard; no condom. Since their inception in 2011 the band has spent most of 2012 on the road and in the underbelly of Atlanta's Garage-Punk scene. The Joy Kills don't seek to emulate that tried and true sound, but rather reinvigorate it from the ground up and are quickly establishing themselves as one of the preeminent live acts in their hometown and the region. January 2013 saw the release of their debut album, "Danced to Death", produced and recorded at Sonica Studios with Atlanta recording juggernaut John Briglevich. Since the release, The Joy Kills are focused on their upcoming tours throughout the Southeast and whatever prospects the future may bring.
