After 15 years of activity BLITZKID will close the coffin and will go on their last European tour ever!
This will be the last chance to see one of the best live bands of the last decade on a stage on this continent.
There will be a very special release from People Like You Records for this final tour, and you might expect a few surprises...
Blitzkid began in Bluefield, WV in the winter of 1997. In the time that they have been a band, they have toured consistently all over the US and overseas. The band is headed up by Argyle Goolsby and TB Monstrosity.
Over the years, they have garnered critical underground acclaim for their tireless work ethic, consistent, ever evolving album output, disregard for bad tour routing and dedication to giving their audience their money’s worth through providing energetic live shows and playing great songs.
Blitzkid has a prodigious following in the states as well as Europe and have shared the stage, in some cases regularly, with many and great notable acts. Blitzkid have also been a regular part of many of the biggest festivals in Europe including M’era Luna, Rock My Ass, Endless Summer, Summer Breeze, and WGT.
Blitzkid are signed to Century Media/People Like You Records worldwide.
Since they have been together, the band has captured the imaginations of fans of underground music all over the world. At Blitzkid shows, there is no separation between the band and the fans, and you can expect it to be a catharsis of emotion, intensity and a visible exorcism through raw melodicism.
In Feb. 2012 Blitzkid announced their disbandment planned for the end of 2012. The Mayas predicted this. Love for one another and the music however remains despite their return to the living.
Their aim has, and always will be, to create something meaningful for themselves and others through songs that stand the test of time. Now we wait and see…
