Koffin Kats

Detroit based punk band Koffin Kats have signed a deal with punk label Sailor’s Grave Records.  The trio, which consists of Vic Victor (Vocals/Upright Bass), EZ Ian (Vocals/Guitar) and Eric “E Ball” Walls (Drums), will release their new album, Our Way and The Highway, on January 24.  The band is currently on a three month long US tour giving fans a taste of the new record along the way.

Formed in 2003, the Motor City trio has worked their way up from Detroit gutter punks to champions of the psychobilly scene with their toxic blend of booze, tattoos and rip-roaring punk rock ‘n’ roll.
Since their inception, the Koffin Kats have amassed a rapid fanbase throughout North America and Europe with five studio albums, The Koffin Kats (2003), Inhumane (2005), Straying from the Pack (2006), Drunk in the Daylight (2008) and Forever For Hire (2009) and tours with the likes of Mad Sin, Nekromantix and The Meteors.
2011 marks a turning point for the Koffin Kats as they rise from the psychobilly underground to infiltrate the mainstream with Our Way and The Highway, a culmination of the band’s rich history, road scars and outlaw psycho punk blood running furiously through every ear-ripping track.
 “The inspirations for this new record, musically and ideally, are as broad as distance we have traveled since the last release two years ago,” says Victor.  “Our Way and The Highway is a further melding of punk rock n roll with our psychobilly roots.”
