Gravity Kills is an American industrial rock band from Jefferson City, Missouri.
The band was formed in 1994. They had their first hit single with "Guilty" from their album Gravity Kills. Appearances on the soundtracks for Mortal Kombat ("Goodbye"), Seven, and Test Drive Off-Road also helped bring exposure. They have toured with such bands as one-time TVT labelmates Sevendust and Pigface. Their only other successful singles afterwards were "Falling", from Perversion and "One Thing", from Superstarved, though both were only minor successes. Following a severe injury to keyboardist Doug Firley's hands, and lack of tour support from their record label, they were unable to complete a tour for Superstarved and broke up in 2003. On October 28, 2005, Gravity Kills reunited to perform for a self-created Halloween music festival in St. Louis, Missouri entitled "The Killoween Freakshow." This appears to be becoming an annual event, as another "Killoween" occurred on October 28, 2006, at Pop's nightclub and bar, featuring Gravity Kills and Fragile Porcelain Mice. Due to a scheduling conflict, Killoween was instead "The Nightmare Before Thanksgiving" on November 21, 2007. Gravity Kills confirmed rumors that have persisted over the past year on October 20, 2009, with an announcement about new material on their official MySpace. The band performed at Roberts Orpheum Theater in St. Louis, MO on June 25, 2010 as part of a benefit show.
Jeff Scheel is also the vocalist of Star 13.
