On the scale of psychobilly, Detroit's Koffin Kats lean much heavier on the punk side than on rockabilly. It's high-octane, manic swinging punk rock, but with pompadours. Like most bands in their niche genre, their lyrics explore a lot of horror and booze themes, and the lead singer is a sort of mutant evil Elvis Presley. They've played thousands of shows, touring almost non-stop for the past decade. Koffin Kats are particularly big in Europe, where their insanity is properly appreciated, but they hold their own anywhere where punk rock daddy-o's abide. (Aaron Carnes)
With over nine years of touring internationally and 1200+ shows, the Detroit based Koffin Kats new home is on the road. This trio kicked it off in June of 2003 with the mission to not stop for anything. Vic Victor (Lead Vocal, Upright Bass) would join forces with long time friend Tommy Koffin (Guitar) and start laying the ground work for the sonic assault known as The Koffin Kats.
They put together songs with subjects ranging from Sci-Fi to dealing with the horrors of the real world. With Eric "E Ball" Walls (Drums) they began in small local bars playing for beer and eventually made their way out of the Mid West.
In the recent years they have been able to make a name for themselves in Europe as well and have been included on tours with some of the tops acts in psychobilly such as Mad Sin, Nekromantix, & The Meteors.
