Watch & Listen
Call them what you want. Punk? Rock? Psychobilly? Or just plain wrong. The Koffin Kats don't even know what to consider themselves but firmly believe in the spirit of Rock n' Roll and all of its excess and beautiful evil. Having influences ranging from bands such as Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, The Quakes, Tom Waits, and Bad religion. The sound is everything but normal. Detroit, Michigan. June of 2003 marked the arrival of this band. Vic Victor having been in numerous bands but not going anywhere beyond a local bar or the basement was fed up with not being able to be apart of a touring band. Never really being a singer or a front man before he got together with long time friend Tommy T Bags, who would later become Tommy Koffin, and started laying down the material that would become the upright bass throwing, beer slamming, blood gushing, and sonic assault known as The Koffin Kats. They had the songs that resided around thumping upright bass and wild distorted guitar with lyrics of drug use, self loathing, and all things evil.
the band has arisen from the ashes of the wanderer.
Housebroken has been around the Tampa/ St. Petersburg area for almost a decade. They have had the opportunity to share the stage with some of horror punks biggest acts including Blitzkid, Michale Graves, The Koffin Kats, Vagora, and The Creepshow. They quickly gain fans every time they hit a stage with their undeniable old school punk sound.
The wheel's already been invented. We're making sure it keeps rolling.
