|KICKED IN THE TEETH formed toward the end of 2018, heavily influenced by punk and big riffs the band received a great initial reaction to their live gigs, drawing comparisons from classic bands like CRASS, POISON IDEA and BAD RELIGION through to more contemporary acts like IDLES, PIGSx7 and SLAVES.
In the summer of 2019 they recorded their debut Self-Titled album, this was released by fledgling label RARE VITAMIN RECORDS in the autumn of 2019. Initially only available on CD and online platforms the album went on to receive phenomenal reception;
“…..the thing that sets this band apart from so many others is that, however abrasive the songs may get, they never fail to have a melodic hook at the core that draws you completely in to their sound….” Fear and Loathing Zine
“….immediately delivers that slap, fast and furious and to the point…8/10” Vive Le Rock
“…These guys are having in your fuckin’ face fun from the start…” Louder Than War
“… KITT are built solidly from the ground up. An unrelenting detonating snare drum carries a crawling, rumbling reptilian bass. Served up with angular, dense meaty guitar. Full and flavoursome like venison steak…” Bane Of My Life
“…..It’s slick and tight, much like an otter’s bum hole if the rumours are to be believed. The core sound here is very much no frills meat n’ spuds hardcore punk. Which when done well and properly often causes me to remember that I love owt like that, me…. 9/10” Apathy and Exhaustion
This album is now being re-issued onto 10” vinyl for the first time.
Accompanying the album the band are releasing a brand new video for the song NO APOLOGIES, SORRY on the 20th of July 2020.
