Official press release:
Eulogy Recordings is very proud to announce that we will be releasing new material from Kid Gorgeous.
Kid Gorgeous, hailing from Buffalo, NY, features current and ex-members of Buried Alive, Anterrabae and Every Time I Die. While early inceptions of the band had several lineup changes before their first release, the quintet ultimately comprised of vocalist Erik Boccio, guitarists John McCarthy and Steve Micciche, bassist Justin Cuviello and drummer Jesse Muscato.
Kid Gorgeous' buzz and energetic live show caught the attention of Uprising Records, where the band would release two full-lengths. In 2001, the band wrote and released "Friday Night Knife Fight," a 10 song onslaught showcasing their dissonant/noise off-time song structure and Boccio's lyrical prose. Extensive touring followed and helped Kid Gorgeous build a name for themselves as one of the up and coming bands in the hardcore scene.
When time came to write the 2nd full length, the band lost bassist Cuviello, then soon after lost guitarist Micciche to the band Every Time I Die. Now a four piece with the addition of bassist Ryan Besch, the 2003 release of "This Feeling Gets Old" saw the band streamlining their sound; a little more melodic but not sacrificing any musical brutality. They continued touring throughout that year until personal interests forced the group to disband and play their final show on Nov. 1st, 2003 with Snapcase and Every Time I Die.
In the fall of 2010, Micciche and Muscato expressed an interest in getting the band back together and started writing new songs to record. With Boccio returning on vocals, Kid G recruited former Every Time I Die bassist Aaron Ratajczak and new guitarist Gene Zdybowicz. The band entered GCR studios in Buffalo, NY to record an EP with Jay Zubricky entitled "Blue Romance." The release doesn't stray far from the Kid G formula...aggressive, melodic, heavy. "Blue Romance" features 3 new tracks, a re-recorded classic and a cover. Look for its release soon and for Kid G to be playing some shows in support this coming year.
