KIDCRASH is one of those groups that when you ask other bands who their favourite band is, the name invariably comes back, KIDCRASH. KIDCRASH. KIDCRASH.
This band that people mention, KIDCRASH, I believe is their name, has been releasing some of the most progressive and dizzying punk/rock/hardcore/screamo material since 2007. Every record owns, every riff is meticulous and every scream/yell well-placed. They release split records or albums on their own with strange names, such as 'Jokes', 'Snacks' and 'Naps'. I have heard they have completed writing a new album, hopefully we will see that in 2014!
For those of you unfamiliar with KIDCRASH, get ready for controlled chaos. Much like their brethren (and shared members) in Carrion Spring and other bands like La Quiete, Van Johnson, Native and especially Snoras - they play jangly, clean, grooving music with multiple time-changes. Expect massive riffing and insane noodling when the band decides to hit the distortion, screamed, shouted or crooned vocals as well as an awesome rhythm section that is bouncier and more complex than most.
Seriously, get a hold of everything they ever released (especially the splits I have posted in mp3 download form) and prepare yourself for the new record - I would expect it to be in the top 10 of 2014, easy.
