Kill Star

"Kill Star is straight ahead, kick you in the ass, rock 'n' roll at its best. In the style of legendary Motorhead, "Rat Trap Baby" is dark, gritty and proof positive that rock ain't dead, it's alive and well in Kill Star!" -Rich Embury (CEO of Pure Rock Radio)

A sound that slaps you in the face and drives it home from the first listen. Heavy and melodic guitar driven hard rock. Kill Star has released their debut album "THRESHOLD" Oct 2011. The album will mark their stain in the music world and showcase them as a significant new talent. This project has a raw, heavy and powerful sound that begs to be experienced live!

From the bitter cold winters and humid hot summers of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, these guys are not new to the music industry. "I played in a few bands with Brent (Andres-Guitar) starting when I was 16. We played for years together. Did all the local circuit as well as some short Canadian tours. Ive known Purple (Vocals) almost as long. His band used to do a lot of shows with another band I was in." says bassist, Derek Dufresne.

The members all have extensive live, studio, road and video experience. They have shared the stage with numerous major label recording acts like Quiet Riot, I Mother Earth, Econoline Crush, Sass Jordan.. to name a few

Dufresne moved to Victoria, BC in 1999 and pursued a career as a tattoo artist. Over the years he has established himself as an international award winning tattoo artist with dozens of magazine feature articles and hundreds of published tattoo photos.
But his first love was always music. "I have a ton of music written and self recorded with Logic. After reconnecting with Brent and Purple in the summer of 2010, I started emailing tracks to them and they would write and add guitar and vocals to the songs and send them back and I would mix them into complete songs."

The project was originally conceived as a writing project, for fun, but after months of writing and posting music online (facebook etc..) they started to build up a strong fan base eager for more and for live shows. So they recruited another guitar player and drummer in order to give the people what they wanted and start playing clubs.

They played their first live show together in November 2010, without so much as a single rehearsal under their belts and won Fist place in a Supernova sponsored "Battle of the Bands"!

The songs "Rat Trap Baby", "Only Love Remains", "See You", and "Supposed To Be" have been in rotation on numerous internet radio stations since November 2010. As well singles "Rat Trap Baby" and "Supposed To Be" recently distributed as digital downloads by Cdbaby.
Debut full length album "THRESHOLD" available June 2011
First single "See You" out now.
