KISSING CANDICE hails from the NY area and first stepped into the scene known for the guts and gore of the bands stage presence, the love of horror music and the heavy music they captured into songs. Through the bands career they have released numerous Eps and then got a small break when they signed with Victory Records and released the notable and intriguing full-length album BLIND UNTIL WE BURN. The guys incorporated an animated, dark and creepy stage presence and showcased the track PUT EM UP in video and single form. The perseverance of the band and the creativeness got them on some good tours as well as playing the Juggalos show along with Rock N Shock in Worcester, MA to name a few.
The dudes are back with a vengeance with the new EP SAFE WORD and let’s just say it annihilates the full-length album on all levels. The lyrics are real, the music is tighter, darker and more demented and they have a new layer of devious with the progression of the masks. I was FINALLY able to sit with the guys and chat about the new EP, the masks, the tour with I Set My Friends On Fire and much more.
So, check out this raw, laid back conversation with the band; who is Joey, Grippo, Dreamer, Nephew and Pak-MAN---KISSING CANDICE
