Koffin Kats + The Goddamn Gallows

It’s been over 12 years since Vic, Tommy, & E-Ball started The Koffin Kats in their parent’s basements and played for beer in local Detroit bars. A psychobilly/punk band with influences ranging from The Damned to The Stray Cats, The Koffin Kats have covered a lot of ground. Eight albums later, a few member changes, and over 2,000 live shows from international tours… the founding lineup has returned in 2016.

Six years after his departure, Tommy Koffin is back playing guitar with The Koffin Kats. With Vic Victor on lead vocals and upright bass, and E Ball Walls on drums. The trio has released a new track called “ Cold Blood, Dead Eyes.” They will be touring North America and Europe throughout 2016. The band will be going into the studio later in the year to record a full-length album.

You can keep up with Koffin Kats on all of the social media outlets. The band likes to keep it “old school” and suggests you check out their website at www.koffinkatsrock.com for all official information on news and tours. The Goddamn Gallows came from the heart of America's Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland, OR and later in Los Angeles, CA, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments.

In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of "twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly"(Life of Sin 2004 and Gutterbillyblues 2007), they began picking up stray musicians along the way and adding to their sound; washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo (Ghost of th' Rails 2009 and 7 Devils 2011) creating a sound referred to as "hobocore", "gypsy-punk" or "americana-punk", while never being stuck in any one sound.

The Goddamn Gallows continue to rapidly grow a devoted following with their volatile and spectacular live shows; a contagious, spontaneous eruption of unpredictability. Viva Le Vox is an experimental punk rock roots band from Lake Worth, Florida. The influences are diverse, though the most predominant are early 20th century jazz, 1950s Rock-n-Roll, and 1970s punk rock. The music has been described as a mix between Gogol Bordello and Tom Waits, or Django Reinhardt meets The Clash- either way a gypsy jazz punk rock-n-roll stew no matter which part of the last century you're familiar with.

After spending the better part of his early twenties in and out of psychiatric units and rehabs, singer/songwriter/guitarist Tony Bones found himself somewhere in Delray Beach, Florida, and began to play his songs solo. He soon found a band grew up around him, and the outfit started gaining interest from their now infamous shows at their local 24-hour laundromat, and their guerilla infiltration of open mic nights. Since then, with the tremendous help and support of friends and fans, past and present members, and a whole lotta elbow grease, Viva Le Vox has been able to tour extensively, and independently release 3 albums to date: Desperation Alley (2009), Wayward Ones (2010), and Dirt For Sale (2012).
