In the last year, the members of Dead Kings found each other on Craigslist, made L.A. their hometown, recorded a 4-track E.P. in Santa Fe, dusted off the quarter-inch tape decks at Capitol Records, and rocked the House of Blues on Sunset. But that's just the amp buzz start to what they call a much overdue "evolution of rock n' roll". Armed with a clash of influences ranging throughout the decades - The Beatles to Queen, Journey to Nirvana, Radiohead to The Black Keys - they specialize in a sound that's familiar, but fresh. Thus, an evolution. Not only is the music a modern melting pot, the members are as well. Lead vocalist, writer and rhythm guitarist Clemente Bornacelli hails from south Florida along and L.A. native drummer, Jake DeSouza. If their fans' screams of "more!" drifting over the last loud ringing chord in their live set is any indication, Dead Kings is as Clemente likes to say, "the best fuckin' band you've never heard."
