With shows along Summerlin set to take place this month, as well as a new single in 'The Danger Of Falling In Love', Kiss Corona are set to start the new year on a high, as their style is one that is easily accessible and instantly leaves you hooked.
For Fans Of: The All-American Rejects, All Time Low and McFly.
Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Kiss Corona: ATP readers should check us out as we like to think we're offering something a little different to what you would usually expect from a pop rock band. We still have the light hearted bouncy anthems but we inject it with some British charm and another shot of pop! Unlike other bands in the genre, we're not afraid to really embrace the pop side of our sound, because of this we can give each of our songs a different flavour, while still keeping in the same style. Having spent our time carefully crafting a great, tight, fun live performance we really know how to put on a show. Make sure you come check us out on our UK tour in December.
ATP: What's the story behind the band?
KC: The band formed properly in September 2009 after an old band split up. We started writing together and soon after released our debut EP, 'Look To The Stars'. Our first tour tour was in April 2010 supporting popular pop band Twenty Twenty. After this we got our heads down and started writing new material. 2 months on in July we tested this new material our on a 3 date mini tour, it was very well received so in September we headed down to Red Triangle productions in Bournemouth to record a bunch of new singles. The first of which is released on 5th December called 'The Danger Of Falling In Love'. Currently we are gearing up for our full UK tour in December with the Leeds pop-punk outfit Summerlin.
ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
KC: The single highlight as a band so far would probably be playing Nottingham's Rock City to a sold out crowd while on tour in April. It's our local venue, we've all been going to shows there since we were young so it was awesome to finally experience what it was like to play at such a prestigious venue.
ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
KC: We plan to tour as much as possible next year, we're in the initial stages of booking a few headline dates to follow up from our tour and promote another new single. We had the new songs ready for release, we're just waiting for the right time so we make the biggest splash! As well as this were going to be completing our debut album and get that recorded.
'The Danger Of Falling In Love' by Kiss Corona is released on December 5th. (Pre-Order here).
