Seattle psych-pop group Kilcid Band is touring in support of their brand new EP, coming July 12th! Fans in Hood River can see them live on Aug. 2nd at River City Saloon.
Most of Kilcid Band was incubated in a small town in Washington called Port Townsend. It was there that drummer, Christian Powers, bassist Kyle Hove and guitar/keyboard player Conor Sisk grew up playing music together from about ten years of age. In 2009, the three moved to Seattle where fate would connect them with a crucial and magical addition to Kilcid Band, Tristan Marcum, who serendipitously was also born in Port Townsend. In the following years Joel Mars joined the band, bringing a very heavy hitting guitar style and vocalizing talent. It was there in Seattle that Kilcid Band would transcend just being a band into being a brotherhood.
Kilcid Band writes songs from an eccentric pallet of style and inspiration while still feeling familiar and catchy. The songs have an energetic blend of psychedelia and pop with a lyrical styling of mystical and heartfelt poetry. All of which feature the whole band harmonizing to no end. The group has performed at Seattle clubs such as The Sunset Tavern, Fremont Abbey arts Center and the Conor Byrne, as well as at Treefort Music Fest, Macefield Music Festival and Tacoma’s Squeak and Squawk. They have opened for internationally touring bands such as Modest Mouse, Mimicking Birds and Sonny and The Sunsets. They have also been played frequently on Seattle’s world-renowned radio station 90.3 KEXP as well as performed live on KEXP’s ‘Audioasis’. They were also featured as “Artist of The Month” on Seattles 107.7 The End.
