Formed in early 2015, Kikamora immediately grabbed the spotlights, playing their first live show, recording their first video “Old Rosie” and their first collection of songs entitled “Old Rosie Demos”. With raspy and energetic vocals, bold bass lines, complex guitars and dynamic drums, Kikamora played relentlessly throughout 2015. Their gritty and distinctive rock beats brought them out of the crowd and quickly gathered a legion of loyal fans.
Over the coming months, Kikamora started displaying their skills “live on air” in local radio shows, including BBC Bristol and Glastonbury FM. Excited by the direction of their music and the crowd response, they began writing material for their first EP at the end of 2015.
2018 has been another turning point in Kikamora’s journey. After losing veteran and legendary drummer Mr Rich Wilson at the end of 2017, followed by Daniel Marshall leaving shortly after, the new line up includes “Andy Stick Shredder Page” on drums and “Chris Archela” on guitar.
Kikamora will release a brand-new EP “Masquearade” in November 2018, which has been recorded at Outhouse studios in Reading. As part of the EP’s promotion, the band will be touring across the UK in November, and Europe in Spring 2019.
