Blitz Kids: Alt. rock on steroids
Origin: Crewe & Nantwich, UK
Genre: Alternative rock
“‘White-knuckle alt-rock’ that encourages you to take leave of your senses” (Last.fm) and “a schizophrenic force to be reckoned with ... the type of band that will have you headbanging, shaking your arse and singing along all in the same breath” (Rock Sound) – sound good? Well, that’s only two of the many good things being said about Blitz Kids. Well-known for full-throttle, in-your-face live performances, Blitz Kids are alt. rock on steroids. The band has been nominated for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards 2011. Expect big things!
