KIRBY KRACKLE’S front-man, Kyle Stevens returns to Australia in 2015, playing geek-rockin’ tunes for fans in Melbourne and Gold Coast in April!
KIRBY KRACKLE has risen through the ranks of nerd-rock to emerge as the leader in a new movement of geek-driven musical inspiration. Putting on a high-energy rock n’ roll show and writing songs referencing pop-culture icons, comic book characters, and video games, KIRBY KRACKLE’s name has become synonymous with meshing pop-culture themes together with powerful musicianship.
In January of 2009, the band released their full-length debut, Kirby Krackle at New York comicon and their as-of-now five-year space of touring the comic convention circuit all over North America and Australia.
A grassroots movement emerged in 2011 when thousands of Krackleheads (the KK fan base) pushed for the KK anthem “Ring Capacity” from the sophomore album, E For Everyoneinspired by the DC Comics Green Lantern character, to be included on the soundtrack for the recent film adaptation. In 2011 KK released their highly anticipated third album, Super Powered Love, and composed the track “Who Watches The Watcher?”; a theme song commissioned by DISNEY/MARVEL COMICS for their viral webshow “The Watcher.”
Having put out three studio albums in as many years, Kirby Krackle recorded and released Live In Seattle in 2012; a live album documenting a performance at the band’s annual “Kracklefest” nerd-music event coinciding with Emerald City Comic Con. In June of 2012 the band embarked on their second tour of Australia by appearing in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, and Brisbane for their Aussie fans.
In 2013’s Sounds Like You was released marking the fourth studio album,from the band as well as embarking on a west coast tour in support of the album.
Kirby Krackle kicks of 2014 with a bang releasing their, “Live In Calgary” EP from their opening arena touring slot with Weird Al Yankovic and their cover of “Everything Is Awesome!” in tribute to the band’s love of LEGO: The Movie.
