Big news! We’re excited to announce that our next EP, “A Matter of Style,” will be released under our new band name, Killer Workout. We’ve been hard at work writing tunes that evolve our style, and these songs needed a new name. We can’t wait to share our work with you, so join us at The Sunset on Sat. Mar. 18th, 2017 for Killer Workout’s first EP release show.

Sean Jewell from The Stranger reviews “Clock Is Tickling”

“On Clock Is Ticking, austere vocals and spatial synths dance with anti-clockwise drums and hi-toned bass riffs…The West jam like post-punk is a new idea…this EP is space odyssey clean from the recording to the Swiss-modern cover art.” -Sean Jewell
