The Hyena Kill are a band that don’t do things by half measures. The Manchester-based hard rock two-piece, comprised of Steven Dobb (Vocals and Guitars) and Lorna Blundell (Drums), are experts in crafting huge, powerful music with enormous hooks and filthy grooves.
Hailing from Manchester, a city famous for its vibrant music scene and birth place of classic indie bands such as Oasis, The Stone Roses and The Smiths, but that’s where the similarities end. The Hyena Kill are anything but indie, they are balls to the wall rock n roll, with their blistering live performances showing signs of a band that aren’t messing around. Every note and beat is hammered out with nothing but pure devotion, blood, sweat, guts and love.
The band was formed in 2011 after the pair met on the local scene playing in various acts. With both members sharing a passion for hard rock, and drawing influences from bands such as Deftones, Tool and QOTSA, a creative bond was formed and they began writing from their first jam.
Since their formation the band have remained an active force in their local scene, releasing their debut EP “Gush” in 2012 and the follow-up “Scrape My Bones” in 2013. Both were met with acclaim from fans and critics alike, and the band have continued to tour relentlessly around the UK to support their music, bringing their unique blend of heavy alternative rock to the masses.
This year The Hyena Kill launched their new double A side single, “Still sick/Blisters” to another sold-out crowd at their launch party at manchesters soup kitchen and picked up rave reviews across the board. The band are now working hard on their debut album due for release next year.
The hard hitting duo have become a force to be reckoned with, continuing to build momentum as they captivate audiences around the UK with every raw, real, intoxicating show they play.
