Album Review

Although the band has been known to run with the generic pop-punk crowd, Rock Kills Kid is anything but. Musically, their emotions seem deeper and more sincere than many of their counterparts. Although the lyrical message is similar to many pop-punk acts (relationships of the male/female variety, etc.), the lyrics seem to be on a whole other plane, with more richness and much more thought-out on the whole. "Everything to Me" shows the band's college rock influence, which consistently vies for attention in the musical structure. Although a slower tune, it does so with no sappiness and instead comes across as quite authentic. The majority of the other songs are upbeat without losing their hold on maturity. Jeff Tucker's vocals are strong and the background vocals kick in at all the appropriate parts. Much of the success here can be attributed to Cameron Webb's knowledgeable production skills. Having worked with such acts as Park and Fairview, Webb is familiar with this genre of music and has made it work in the past. Nonetheless, the band certainly is smart for having gone with such a prolific producer in the first place. While the release has only six songs, each one certainly packs a punch and is filled with hooks galore. If the dreadful trendiness with pop-punk offers up anything worthwhile, it'll be an act such as this.

YAY

I thought Hide Away Single was great. Well, apparently I didn't know music before this one. I was immediately listening to it 24/7. Now this album, well! Just plain amazing Hide Away-The pick-up-speed ballad/song that everyone loves. It just rocks and rocks and then BAM the best part hits you like you didn't expect it. Great song. Are You Nervous?-Cool, lazy, and guilty pleasure type of song that makes you happy to listen and feel like a music video star. Paralyzed-My personal favorite. Great change of pace from the rest of the album, and this track makes you feel weightless. i don't know why, it just kinda does. Raise Your Hands-just do it!

RKK: Your Time Has Come

For many fans, 2005 was supposed to be the year that Rock Kills Kid conquered America. After another year of constant touring, RKK finally delivers this masterful EP. 'Hide Away' and 'Paralyzed' are live show favorites and are destined for heavy rotation (on radio and tv). 'Are You Nervous?' falls into the category of songs that must be listened to with eyes closed--so that the body can accept the music fully and the mind can paint a picture of the lyrics in your head. 'Raise Your Hands', with it's infectious rhythm (and guitar feintly reminiscent of 'Still Standing'), is the fourth and final track on this record. The full album, "Are You Nervous?", is set for release this April...Some things in life are definetly worth waiting for.

Awesome

I saw these guys live in philly last week and they put on a great show. This is one of those bands that i think sound better live, just because of the way they bring it to the stage. I can't wait till the album comes out and they come back to town. This ep doesn't do justice to the band.

Biography

Formed: Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Based around the songwriting talents of Jeff Tucker, the California-based alternative rock outfit Rock Kills Kid initially came together in the last part of the '90s. Having recently graduated from high school, Tucker was directionless and socially withdrawn when he finally worked up the nerve to hook up with some local punk bands and begin writing songs. Together with two of his bandmates, drummer Chris Poulson and bassist Kirk Huffman, Tucker formed Rock Kills Kid and recorded a demo that led to...
