We’re thrilled to announce that Los Angeles’ own The Kinison are back and on the verge of their first release since 2004’s “What Are You Listening To?"

The single, “Oh, The Guilt," was recorded with Paul Fig (Deftones / Coheed & Cambria) and is being mixed and mastered now. It’ll come with two unreleased live tracks — “What Would You Do?" and “Stevie Nicks vs. Nikki Sixx." And the whole lot will be available September 2nd, 2013 on Highwires (http://highwires.com)!

Road warriors for much of the early aughts, the Kinison ended up in a variety of places (from Coachella to shows with Black Flag — including the West Memphis Three benefit — to touring with Blink-182), before calling it quits in 2005. But, after a lengthy hiatus, the members felt a pull to get together again. Vocalist Christopher Lee Lewis puts it simply: “We really just wanted to see if we still had it, and it clicked."

The Kinison will be playing shows soon, including a pending return to Europe in 2014.

Current Lineup:
Christopher Lee Lewis - Vocals
Guy Knight - Guitar
Mikey Rivera - Drums
Frank Alexander Figueroa - Bass
Bryan Swarthout - Piano

This doesn't surprise me at all. First experience with them was upon immediate departure from their band van, they requested us point them to the nearest liquor store. haha.


"what are you listening to" is still a great disc.

Beyond stoked for this. I remember it was either warped 03' or 04 and I could hear them performing from the line, but didn't make it in time to catch their set.

saw them at Warped 05. The fact I still remember that despite not listening to them before or after says a lot about how fun their live show was.

Oh my god I forgot all about these guys. Haven't heard or seen that name in so long. I wonder if I can find my cd of theirs.
