Formed in 2006, this young power pop trio, driven by great songwriting and outstanding vocal harmonies, bring an infectious new energy to alternative rock. Kick the Robot write and perform all original music. Influenced by everyone from The Beatles and The Zombies to modern day rock stars like Marcy Playground, The Raconteurs and OK Go, this group aspires to bring back hook-driven, uninhibited rock ‘n roll. The band recorded and released a five song EP in late 2009 and began playing locally earlier that year. They rapidly gained a local fan base and received critical acclaim on their songwriting and performance ability. They continue to write new music regularly and perform to an increasing following. They are playing shows at highly regarded venues in Atlanta and Athens such as The Vinyl, Masquerade, Red Light Café, The Melting Point and Sweetwater Live. Kick the Robot recently won the Atlanta Hard Rock—Hard Rock Rising 2012 Global Battle of the bands. They have been selected to open for The Producers during Athfest in June 2012. KTR is produced by Gerry Hansen, the legendary session drummer and producer for many artists including Shawn Mullins, Michelle Malone, Chuck Leavell and Randall Bramblett. Kick the Robot is currently playing both club shows and festivals in the southeast and finalizing their full length CD. Their full length album will be titled “Music to Fight the Future” and is targeted for release in 2012.
