Kill No Albatross Releases Music Video for “Apex Predator” for Upcoming Release “Speak True Evil”

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.

Set to release their new EP “Speak True Evil” on July 13th, the band will be hitting the road across Ontario and Quebec for the month of July, which includes kicking off their dates with a performance at Vans Warped Tour in Toronto on July 17th.

“We’re incredibly stoked to be taking our trio of 1975 AMC Gremlins on the road in a few weeks. Keep up with our exploits via our Facebook and Instagram pages. If you’re having trouble finding any of the venues we’re at, just follow the scent of burnt rubber, Dorito dust, and armpit sweat.”

The band comments about the album:

“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.”

“Kill No Albatross has a meticulously crafted collection of progressive alternative rock with a strong cerebral element… they can seriously play.” – Ric Taylor, VIEW Magazine 

“A sound I really enjoy… I love the song Eos.”  – Mat Boiselle, 102.1 The Edge & 91.7 Erin Radio

“Ontario’s Kill No Albatross is one of “those” bands. The rockers are well on their way to getting some early attention… certainly a band you will want to keep an eye on in the near future.” – Bradley Dillon, The New Fury

“Ferocity and sweetness. Kill No Albatross will coax you in with soothing vocal melodies and destroy you with high energy riffage. Five-piece powerhouse rockers. Animal friendly.” – Keegan Ro, MAT/H Magazine

“Attention grabbing tracks that can gain the respect of discerning music critics while still grabbing the ears of more casual rock fans… Lost in Darkness and Distance already shows the band has a grip on balancing the heavy, the melodic, and the technical.”  – Donte Montgomery, The Haystack Music
