THE KRAYS erupted from the mid 90's New York punk scene and it did not take long for them to get noticed. Formed in 1994 in Brooklyn, the group quickly asserted itself on the scene, standing apart with their strong riffs and mindful lyrics. Releasing a string of demo tapes and playing a ton of blistering shows, the group drew lots of attention and a very large following.

In 1996 THE KRAYS released a split EP with fellow NY band the Truents and then made their debut in 1998 with the "Inside Warfare" LP on Tribal War/Eyeball Records. After 2000's “A Battle For The Truth" the band signed with TKO Records and released "A Time For Action" to critical acclaim. All the while, the group bashed on the many stages of New York, with headlining shows at the legendary CBGB's as well as opening spots for the parade of legendary punk bands that came through New York. The group also embarked on a slew of tours around the United States and in Europe. Some memorable trips include tours with Dropkick Murphy's, Blanks 77, Vice Squad, Threats, The Restarts, Clit 45, and more.

Led by Johnny Rosado, otherwise known as Johnny Kray, the group are inspired by classic punk groups from the U.S. and the U.K. like Fear, The Ruts, Menace, Stiff Little Fingers, The Clash, and others. Their many records and compilation appearances as well as countless shows and tours testify to the amount of work THE KRAYS have put in over the years. Dead City Records is proud to present their greatest release yet titled "Sangre". Amazing riffs, catchy choruses, intelligent lyrics, and the most talent to ever come out of the NY Punk scene is what “Sangre” and THE KRAYS are all about. The amazing recording and mixing was done by none other than Johnny Kray himself in his home studio where he continues to prove his skills as an all around amazing musical talent. With the release of “Sangre” THE KRAYS have now taken the next step and cemented themselves as New York punk legends.
