On October 10, Rustyn Rose of Metalholic.com conducted an interview with singer Steve Whiteman of Maryland rockers KIX. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
Frontiers Records recently announced the signing of KIX. The band's first-ever live DVD and CD, entitled "Live In Baltimore", was released on September 21 in Europe and September 25 in North America.
Since KIX's return to the national stage in 2008 with appearances at two of the biggest rock festivals in the U.S., Rocklahoma in Pryor, Oklahoma and Rock The Bayou in Houston, Texas , KIX has played a large number of successful live shows all across the USA, with regular appearances at festivals, casinos and biker rallys, culminating with headlining the hugely successful M3 Rock Festival in Columbia, Maryland two years in a row. The new live CD/DVD is packed with fan favorites and a choice catalog of great hard rock KIX songs recorded live in Baltimore, Maryland.
As the demand from the fans for new KIX music has never subsided and, in fact, has only increased over the last few years, the bandmembers have decided that they can no longer ignore the overtures from the fans and are writing new KIX songs for a new album, due out on Frontiers Records in 2013.
Whiteman stated: "This is a great thing for us and we hope it's a great thing for KIX fans all around the world. We are so thrilled to finally be able to give the fans what they have been asking for, a live DVD and new KIX music in 2013! We have been hard at work getting new material together that we think will stand shoulder to shoulder with any previous KIX record. It's a really exciting time for KIX!"
KIX lineup includes original members Steve Whiteman, Jimmy Chalfant, Ronnie Younkins and Brian Forsythe, with Mark Schenker on bass.
