KRISTY MAJORS AND THE THRILL KILLS, featuring members of PRETTY BOY FLOYD and MURDERDOLLS, will release a self-titled, debut album on June 17th.

With roots that feed from the East Coast ‘70s punk scene to the West Coast ‘80s metal scene, KRISTY MAJORS AND THE THRILL KILLS are delivering from the sweet spot that exists in between.

Kristy Majors And The Thrill Kills tracklisting:

  • "Beginners Luck"
  • "Deadbeat"
  • "Empty Handed"
  • "Broken Lip"
  • "Stagnation Street"
  • "Pissed It All Away"
  • "Over And Over Again (The Same Thing)"
  • "Make Up"
  • "Falling Behind"
  • "Teenage Wasteland"
  • "Magazine"
All tracks were produced, recorded and mixed by KRISTY MAJORS at Highway To Hell Studios in SoCal, with Kari Kane (PRETTY BOY FLOYD) on drums.

The first single, “Broken Lip”, is the perfect example of this synergy, with its blistering speed, classic punk guitar sound, lyrics punched with attitude and two-minute run time. It's available as a free download HERE.

“I write and record music to please myself these days,” said Majors, who is releasing the album independently and going back to basics with fan-focused promotion: big shows in intimate venues, crazy live videos, and music that transcends generations. With decades of diverse experience, Majors is going “back to my roots.”

Majors grew up in NYC, attending all-ages shows at CBGBs and collecting firsthand the energy from epic punks like THE RAMONES, DEAD BOYS and NEW YORK DOLLS. Later, he took in glam and rock shows, Broadway plays, and the cutting edge art scene. Majors packed all that in his suitcase bound for LA, and by the mid-'80s was signed to MCA with the glam rock band he formed, PRETTY BOY FLOYD. Leather Boyz With Electric Toys sold more than half a million copies, and the band has existed in various forms ever since.

During the pop music shift of the '90s, Majors worked in A&R at Sony Records, producing some of their biggest jazz and pop artists including. Later, he opened Highway To Hell Studios, and Artists Worldwide booking agency, which represents more than 60 acts including: MISFITS, PAUL DI’ANNO, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP. He’s also written music for TV and movie soundtracks as well as commercials.

On stage, Majors will be joined by guitarist Nick Rozz (BULLETBOYS), bassist JK Famous (PRETTY BOY FLOYD) and drummer Ben Graves (MURDERDOLLS).

The band has its live debut - and record release party - at the legendary Viper Room in Los Angeles on June 21st. The evening includes a VIP meet-and-greet in the downstairs lounge, and a video shoot.
