KILLDREN

KILLDREN ARE A TWO-BIT RAVE-PUNK BAND

semi-officially the most hated/crap/controversial band in the UK

Gigs | Bandcamp/Merch | YouTube | Facebook | Soundcloud | Twitter | Contact

Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety,
Killdren pen politically charged slapstick rave punk anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.

Who the fuck are these "posh punks from Tonbridge Wells"?

Hopefully you have your own inventive reasons for visiting our site (boring stuff, like enjoying one of our gigs, or because you're curious just how shit 'rave punk' music could be)... but otherwise maybe you're here because we wrote a heart-felt, but tongue-in-cheek, song about the deadly nature of the brutal austerity policies of the Conservative party which have contributed towards an estimated 130,000 preventable deaths in the UK???

We made a absurdist OTT music video was rushed to coincide with the General Election in 2017 before we were even a band or had any real songs. However, some dingle-berry journalist at the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times broke a story to earn some pennies and there was a 'tinsy, tiny wee media shit-storm' about our debut song 'Kill Tory Scum (Before They Kill You)':

TO RECAP...
The original comedy-horror music video made for about £50
The original article in some bum-rag called the Sunday Times
Our own main media response in a paper that at least published our words unedited
A follow up musical response 'Tickle Tory Chums' presented by our manager Bruce Manhood
One of the most ridiculous bits of coverage, where we get defended by one of the clan Johnson

After this debacle we were withdrawn from the Glasonbury Festival lineup, had our Facebook page removed (new one now here), our Big Cartel page shut down and our YouTube page listed as 'restricted content'.

You couldn't make this shit up – so we didn't!


'Disguise the Limit' is OUT NOW!

We are proud to poop our second six-track EP into existence.
You can listen/buy it over here on Bandcamp

Self-titled 'album' available on CD!

We stuck both of our EPs (with the first one getting a fresh re-master) on a CD,
mainly to sell at gigs – but if you want one you can order from our Bandcamp page.


More t-shirt designs over on our Bandcamp page:

'Overkill is Underrated' is available on Bandcamp:

Killdren - BrexShit tour poster

We got a video channel too:

Killdren’s debut song was released in 2017 as a response to the call for a General Election
in the form of a YouTube music video entitled ‘Kill Tory Scum (Before They Kill You)’.

Some dingle-berry journalist at the Sunday Times (in June 2019) broke a story and there was
'a tinsy, tiny wee media shit-storm' about this particular song:
The original article
Our own main media response
A follow up musical response
Our favourite bit of coverage


And you can buy shit, sucker:

Show the world your disdain for the Tories' violent policies with a wonderful Kill Tory Scum t-shirt!
We now also have ones with Russell Taysom's glorious icon design below as well as badges and CDs.
Available now over on our Bandcamp page (the Big Cartel shop got shut down - so fuck them!)
