Earlier this year The Kingons came over from Japan to do a little California tour. Most dates were with Greenland's The Maxies. The two bands fell in love with each other on stage and off. Everyone at the shows fell in love with the bands, too. It was an international love fest! Both bands put on incredible live shows. The Kingons melted minds with their power pop mod punk rock n roll and through-the-roof level of energy, enthusiasm and dance moves! The Maxies melted hearts with their power pop punk ballads, love-to-hate-'em stage antics and those oh so fabulous physiques! Plans were quickly made to bring the love fest across the sea to Japan. A record to commemorate and celebrate the majesty of such a power-house pairing had to be made and we jumped at the opportunity to do just that. This glorious split delivers 16 minutes of the most eargasm inducing tuneage of recent history. The cover art features kick ass illustration by comic artist Tom "The Cock" Cochran. You're welcome.
The vinyl split will be available for the two band Japanese tour in February. We rushed the CD through production to make sure the Kingons would have some for their current US tour with The Copyrights and The Queers, and for The Maxies coast to coast tour with Reel Big Fish in January. You can buy the CD now, but it'll be a couple of months before vinyl is ready to go.
