Knockout Kid’s unique brand of aggressive pop punk hardcore has solidified them as one of the frontrunners of the scene, and they’ve spent the last year touring the U.S. and Canada extensively in support of their self-released debut, “ICWTJD.”  Having been compared to Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember, and The Wonder Years, KNOCKOUT KID hit the studio last year to add their own twist on the sound they have come to call their own.

Speaking on the recent signing, the band said, “Joining the Bullet Tooth family is a dream come true for KNOCKOUT KID. Having grown up on bands from Josh and Bullet Tooth, it’s only right that they release our most ambitious album to date. The future has never been brighter.”

Knockout Kid are featured in recent issues of New Noise Magazine, Outburn Magazine, and Substream Magazine.

The Killing Floor release exciting new track ‘Corruption Capital’ off album ‘Tongue Tied’


“A seamless blend of melody and gritty, political rock.” 2014

“This track totally rocks the block.”
Uber Rock 2014


THE KILLING FLOOR combines the best of British and American rock music and delivers an electrifying blend of alternative, rock, pop, punk and grunge.

Raw visceral power combined with impassioned melody and accomplished songwriting to draw comparisons to acts like Queens of The Stone Age, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters and Nirvana.

With members hailing from both sides of the Atlantic, the band came together when brothers Mark and Oliver Alberici from London, had a chance meeting with Marco Argiro at Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios in NYC where they had all been working with hit producer Mark Plati (David Bowie, The Cure) on separate projects. Recognising they shared not only a producer but many of the same influences, ideas and attitudes to music, they began writing and recording together and after taking the name The Killing Floor from the Howlin Wolf song, hit the road with their new material, quickly gathering fans and with their blistering show, becoming known as one of the city’s best live acts.

The Killing Floor released their debut self-titled album in 2011 which the press described as “an enticing record with mass appeal”, boasting “proficient songwriting”, and an “infectious quality”. The song ‘Star Baby’ was chosen as the album’s first single, and the band shot their first music video with legendary Hollywood director Joel Schumacher, whose film credits include: ‘The Lost Boys’, ‘Batman Forever’, ‘A Time to Kill’, and ‘Flatliners’. The song was featured in MTV programs Road Rules Challenge, The Real World and Best Ink, and received heavy rotation on US radio. In support of this, the band toured throughout the USA, Canada, UK and Europe, taking in events such as CMJ, SXSW, CBGB Festival, Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape, and Donnington’s Download Festival.

The Killing Floor spent much of last year back in the studios of Brighton England, Nashville and NYC, writing and recording and late 2015 saw the US release of ‘Corruption Capital’ the first single from their second album. The song received rave reviews and extensive rotation on US national commercial rock radio playlists including WBOS, KNDD, KXXR, KNRK and WRKZ to name a few. Pure Volume described the single as “a seamless blend of melody and political rock” and the video was premiered on Guitar World Magazine. The video also gained heavy rotation and was played in all of Journeys shoe stores throughout the USA.

The band showcased at this years SXSW 2016 and will be heading to the UK for the release of their new EP in August followed by an East Coast tour of USA in September to support their eagerly awaited new record “Antisocialmedia”. The Killing Floor will also perform at Indie Week Europe 2016 held in Manchester UK in October as winners of Indie Week Canada where they received First Place Best Band at the Toronto festival.

Prince William – Single Release


Prince William’s inspiring self-confidence and rhymes are likely to appeal to fans of artists like Jay-Z, Childish Gambino and J Cole.

A highly self-motivated artist, Prince William has started a music career through his own determination and grit, setting up his very own record label Lavish Living Ent.

He explains the source of his drive: ‘When I decided to start making music, I called lots of old friends from Elementary all the way to High school and they all (exaggerated with “all” but pretty damn close) dismissed me and that helped me develop my “self-inspiring” attitude and I also learned to depend on myself much more than the average person.’

Prince William has always seen himself as an underdog. Upon starting a career in rap he was told by a peer “I don’t wanna hear music about your problems, if I wanted to hear about problems I would’ve stayed home and looked at bills. This is not the rap game, I want to see girls shake their asses and music I can dance to.”

Eager to continue with his vision and keep making the socially conscious hip hop that drove him, he has since proved his critics wrong by performing at SXSW and scoring radio airplay from Kiss FM phoenix and an interview with KTSU Houston. He was also recently interviewed by Hip hop Weekly.

LONDON, UK – New Rock/Metal music prodigy Khaylan is proud to present his debut single“Falling”, to be released on the 11th May 2016, alongside his music video which can already be found on Youtube

Only on a few occasions have I come across someone who is a true amalgamation of talent, hard work and great personality like Khaylan. Great rock voice, fantastic performer and an original songwriter.” – ‘Jade Vine’ frontman, Constantine Magdalinos.

When I first met Khaylan, I thought that he was this quiet guy who plays the violin – until I saw him cause a riot singing a Rage Against The Machine song… Lots of energy and proper rocking out whilst singing like a man possessed – I will never trust my first impressions again!” – Svetlana Vassileva, bassist for Moby, The Vegastones & Plastic Cinema.

Frontman, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Khaylan is a gifted performer bringing a new sound to the Rock and Metal scene. With profound, personal lyrics, “Falling” embodies the complexity of his compositions with elaborate riffs and epic solos topped by intricate yet catchy melodies.

I write songs because it keeps me going, it’s the ultimate tool for me to express myself. Sharing the music, performing… I know the potential it has to change people’s lives. It’s the only thing that matters.” – Khaylan.

Falling” will be available on all digital retailers from the 11th May 2016, and upcoming shows as well as his EP release date will shortly be announced on his website,
