What do bands like blink-182, Reel Big Fish, and Goldfinger have in common? They all hail from Southern California. And if you’re a fan of these artists, we’ve got a new band for you to check out: Victory Kid. Based in Los Angeles, Victory Kid writes songs that blend catchy pop-punk with high-energy ska, and are entirely fun (“Clownin'”) while also being sentimental and heartfelt (“Leaving NY”). Today, we’re thrilled to be streaming Thrillenials, the band’s brand new EP that follows up Illenials (released this May).
Victory Kid is Harrison Nida on vocals, Nate Dawg on bass, and Carlo on drums. Reel Big Fish’s Matt Appleton also recorded horns for the EP, which was co-produced by Nida and Allan Hessler (The Used and Goldfinger). Thrillenials will be released this Friday, August 3.
Speaking on the EP, Harrison says, “Thrillenials is our high octane release, featuring three of our fastest songs. This is meant to be body music, and are some of the most fun songs to play live.”
Listen to Thrillenials below! Victory Kid will be performing at HempFest in Seattle, WA on August 19; for more information , be sure to keep up with the band on Facebook.
