After stepping up to the limelight as headline act for last years inaugural “Rooster’s Roadshow”, the indomitable Team Kill are back, teaming up with Caveman Events to put together an 8 date tour, reinforcing their reputation as the hardest working metal band in the country! 

Hamilton based TEAM KILL is comprised of brothers Rob (Chuck) and Nate (the Butcher) Walker, on guitar and drums respectively.  These 2 powerhouse musicians helped create the band back in 2011, and along with Phil Smathers, whose rumbling bass rhythms combine to form the brutal core of the band - laying down devastating riffs that provide a solid platform for the incredibly talented Jake Booth to add face melting shredding solo’s on top of.

Jake and frontman Luke Holder (Brick) joined the band in 2013, and brought with them a whole new dynamic to the sound - the impressive vocal styles giving everything a more aggressive edge, and twin guitars enabling them to explore bigger soundscapes. 

In 2014 they delivered their debut EP Age of Disease, produced by the acclaimed Nathan Sowter, and recorded at the Porch Recording Studios in Hamilton.  The EP has racked up impressive sales and received regular airplay on the “Axe Attack” metal radio show.

Citing a diverse range of influences, such as Pantera, American Headcharge,  Sepultura and Meshuggah, they also recognise the effect kiwi heavyweights have had on their sound - bands like 8 Foot Sativa, Sinate, Cripple Mr Onion, Dawn of Azazel, Shakahn, and New Way Home

Collectively described as having “more grunt than a tractor pull”, TEAM KILL are definitely the new standard of NZ heavy metal. 

Their 2015 tour covers the North Island, and see’s the band venture into the South Island for the first time - playing at Rattle n’ Hum Bar in Nelson. This is in response to a fan-driven campaign from some loyal supporters in Nelson, who were determined to create enough interest to entice the band south. Their Facebook page “Get Team Kill to Nelson” rapidly gained a response, so much so that the band decided it was worth the trip down to play for them.

Having released Age of Disease almost a year ago, the band have been feverishly working on new material, much of which they will be debuting on the “A-Bomb A Nation” tour. They have been booked back in to the studio to record the follow up EP straight after this tour.

Did we mention, the hardest working metal band in the country?? 

Paul Martin, of the Axe Attack, describes TEAM KILL as “humble, hard working and down to earth guys, with a great attitude.”  Their sound he calls “straight forward - head banging riffs and brutal energy, delivered with a deep groove, and killer lyrical hooks”. 

Don’t miss your chance to see the Waikato’s powerhouse metal force - TEAM KILL, on tour throughout April & May 2015, joined by some of the heaviest names in kiwi metal, such as Seasons, Inhale, Just One Fix, Amachine, and many more…
