For wildly energetic Burlington, ON based KILL NO ALBATROSS, intertwining the accessibility of rock, the technicality of prog, and the energy of hardcore is the name of the game. Through intelligent songwriting, creative guitar work, and emotional intensity, they meld dynamic, bold, bewitching sounds to create no holds barred rock.

Unleashing their new EP “Speak True Evil” on July 13th, the band have a new music video for fans for their track “Sky On Fire”, which can be watched via New Noise Magazine. HERE

The band comments:

“”Sky On Fire” switches gears from the previous track on the EP “Apex Predator”, beginning with acoustic guitars, melodious vocal lines, and soft instrumentation. The latter half of the “Sky On Fire” turns up the energy as the guitars are distorted, the vocals rise in volume, and a dramatic, wrenching climax is reached. The song also features a string section during its closing chorus. The drum skins were covered with paper during recording to achieve a ‘muted’ sound, appropriate for the song’s melancholic vibe.”

The band adds:

“Speak True Evil is a showcase for Kill No Albatross’ dynamic, technically proficient, intellectual approach to rock music. These four songs cover musical ground that ranges from furious to sweet, hopeful to agonized. The powerful vocals of Kyle Collins pair with the tight, impassioned instrumentation to create a unique sound that is as meticulous as it is robust. Going more in depth on the release, it plays off the title of Wayne Shorter’s 1966 jazz record “Speak No Evil”; “Speak True Evil” asserts the legitimacy of free speech as asserted by thinkers like Mill, Paine, Luxemburg, and Hitchens. As Mill writes, ‘If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.’ After all, it is as much the right of the listener to hear as it is the speaker to talk – enforced silence imprisons man in the cage of his own perspective. The title, then, encourages listeners to speak true evil.”
