Neo-Kalashnikovs

Kalashnikovs is a name that is hard to pronounce, but the music is super sweet to digest.

Neo-KalashnikovsThe Auckland-based alt-rock band forming in late October 2012, the band leapt to a roaring start after releasing their critically acclaimed free rock album “She’s On Heat”. Praise from their local fan base saw The Neos rack up over 5000 downloads of their first record online. Blogs all around the globe were quick to praise the record reminiscent of 90’s rock like the Pixies and Nirvana. The band’s first single “Turn the Tables” released in 2013 was immediately added to high rotation on Hauraki FM in New Zealand gaining strong backing from all djs. The song would then go onto to be the most played independent rock song of the year. International acclaim also came for The Neos in 2013 when their second single “Gorgeous Baby” released through Noisey.com/Vice amassed over 1,000,000 views worldwide. The notorious video would go on to be covered by NME, Daily Mail, The Mirror. Whilst also making headlines on the New Zealand Herald’s front page. While being married to rock and roll The Neo-Kalashnikovs have maintained a solid love affair with Los Angeles gracing stages from The Viper Room to the Echo and all the unknown dive bars in between.

The Neos recently toured throughout NZ May Music Month as they release their sophomore E.P “Urban Warfare” in 2014.

This band is bringing the grit and punk back into rock, they like to poke the fire with their political rants and have the songs to back up their attitude. They are gutsy, young, and ready to light the spirits of rock.
