  5. Press Release

    blueminkmusicmanagement have added Dundee based 4 piece KILLER ANGELS to its roster.

    KILLER ANGELS are a hard edged rock band that take riffs, hooks and solos out of the

    Hendrix and Page school of guitar whilst they are driven by a juggernaut rhythm section

    and have a front man that has the passion of Liam Gallaghers voice and swagger of

    Bobby Gillespie. There are moments you can hear a pin drop, followed by explosions

    of music that tear your ears apart. The Music but harder edged, a band that are in the

    same genre as TCTC and Kasabian, the Led Zep of this generation? Who knows?

    KILLER ANGELS are just back from playing their 4th Death Disco gig in London for

    Alan McGee and have a Fierce Panda showcase gig lined up for the start of October.
