Put simply, Kill Your Idols play hardcore punk. As one of the few bands that cannot be characterized by cookie cutter definitions and corresponding wardrobes, they are one of the last true New York Hardcore bands, and From Companionship to Competition will surely prove their finest effort yet.

Through the erratic trends, pseudo-poetic pretence, and fickle fashion that are unfortunate components of modern hardcore, Kill Your Idols remain steadfast. For every lackluster hardcore band that succumbs to the slick trappings of metal, rock, or pop, it is nice to know that the unadulterated nihilism of Poison Idea and Negative Approach is alive and well, channeled through the unrelenting assault that Kill Your Idols have hammered home for close to a decade now.

Intricate yet punishing, the band utilizes a time-honored approach and, in doing so, achieves a characteristic sound and lyrical stance that truly sets them apart from the pack. The memorable riff slinging of guitarists Gary Bennet and Brian Meehan and scorching howls of vocalist Andy West engender an unmistakable sound that is instantly recognizable and powerful. This musical articulation of undiluted rage has proven a potent medium for conveying emotional anguish and interpersonal strife in a manner seldom matched.

In light of the fleeting life span of many hardcore bands, the longevity of this outfit is remarkable. So too is their prolific catalog. From a number of now classic EPs and splits to two full-length records, the legacy enacted thus far is certainly among the most consistent in modern hardcore and punk.

It has been three years since Kill Your Idols have released a full length album. On January 25th, 2005, Side One Dummy Records will be releasing their newest record, entitled From Companionship to Competition. Delving full force into the raging, melodic fray that has become their staple, Kill Your Idols tackle the many facets of depression, angst, and unrest with particular skill and power on this endeavor. With the added lineup of Mike DeLorenzo (formerly of C.R. and Milhouse) on bass, and Vinnie Value (of Warzone, Grey Area, and No Redeeming Social Value fame) on drums, their musical ingenuity and lyrical onslaught, already formidable, has been bolstered significantly. The end result is a band on top of its game on all fronts.

Put simply, Kill Your Idols play hardcore punk. As one of the few bands that cannot be characterized by cookie cutter definitions and corresponding wardrobes, they are one of the last true New York Hardcore bands, and From Companionship to Competition will surely prove their finest effort yet
