After a small hiatus due to health issues stemming from a tumor in a carotid artery and an ectopic pregnancy, Vancouver’s punk- rocking, zombie-hunting, Kill Matilda, hasn’t let the odds against them stop them.  The band is on an ass-kicking mission to Punk, Zombie and Rock n’ Roll across Canada and unleash their six-song EP re-release ‘#Punk#Zombie#RocknRoll’ officially out  as of March 4th, 2014.

“I have a guitar, I have a microphone. One week out of my hospital bed, I will meet you onstage.” Dusty Exner (vocalist/guitarist) Read more at ‘A Rocky Start, A Re-commitment’

The EP features tracks from their 2011 full-length album ‘I Want Revenge’ featuring an acoustic rendition of Geisha With A Switchblade’ and is accompanied by a comic book created by vocalist/guitarist Dusty Exner.

“I am excited to announce that we will be providing a free download link for everyone along with a comic that I drew by hand to accompany the release. The comic book features 17 beautiful hand-drawn colored pieces of art, which is a lot of work for anyone but is a special challenge for me since this month I’ve had a long-awaited, much-anticipated, badly-needed formal diagnosis of ADHD.” comments vocalist/guitarist Dusty Exner.

“Kill Matilda may be the best punk band you haven’t heard of. Based out of Canada and solely a DIY band, it’s very possible this female-fronted fist full of punk fury has flown under your radar. Not anymore, though. Their latest release, the #Punk#Zombie#RocknRoll EP is a throwback to the classic punk movement with a little bit of horror rock mixed in, serving as an impressive tribute to The Misfits (not that new “Misfits” crap- the real Misfits).” – The Front Row Report

“Opening up with Pomegranate and through to I Want Revenge hints of The Misfits and The Cramps instantly emerge from this vigorous group. Zombie Apocalypse and Law Abiding Citizen continue the mayhem through to the penultimate track PBJ which typifies your current day zombie. What really caught my attention was the final track Geisha With A Switchblade, this is a powerful depictive of the ultimate in revenge to a bad guy whilst enjoying every last detail. Check below the new video for Law Abiding Citizen and enjoy, if you’re nearby any venues these guys are tearing then get yourself down for a set of carnage!” All About The Rock UK

“if there’s one thing thing guaranteed to wake the slumbering beast from the annual hibernation it’s some gravelly voiced and quite frankly excellent punk. If you like Hole, The Misfits or The Offspring (and Yeah, Yeah Yeahs,) and let’s face it who doesn’t, then these guys are right up your alley…down and dirty punk with sexy riffs and a promise of blood, fists and stomping buy this on March 4th. You won’t regret it.” – Wyrd Ways Show Review

“The EP is packed full of high energy, powerful tracks. I personally find that the band makes you feel like you are at their show, rocking out with them. It’s a mix of songs that gives you chills and makes you feel empowered by just listening.” – Canadian Beats

Also in the plans for 2014, the band will be releasing their yet to be titled follow up EP produced by producer extraordinaire Garth Richardson.

“The amazing attention of Garth Richardson! Although this man has produced so many amazing albums and we’re not the only band getting some attention and love, he took the extra steps to personally engineer our new album, which is something he has not done in like, 10 years or something. That makes me feel very, very special.” says KM vocalist/guitarist Dusty Exner.

“With their debut LP, Kill Matilda kicks zombie ass and takes no prisoners. Punk ‘n’ roll pulses through their veins like a narcotic substance, and frontwoman Dusty Exner is screaming like it’s the only thing keeping her alive. It’s a performance that makes her the center of attention for the whole record. The band bangs out solid rock riffs, every once in a while tapping into southern-fried hardcore grooves…I Want Revenge is a solid record from a promising new band.” – The Link (Concordia University Press – Montreal)
“These guys and girl are one of the best unsigned bands I have ever seen live. Their raw performance filled the room with energy as they bashed on their instruments while vocalist Dusty Exner shouted and sang her lungs out.” – PureGrainAudio.com (Live Review)

“If you’re into Hole, Die Mannequin or Bif Naked, you need to take a listen to Vancouver’s Kill Matilda.” – AlanCross.ca

“It’s always a pleasure to hear women rock out. Kill Matilda provided the perfect adrenaline rush…They had boundless energy, plenty of high volume power chords and shouted vocals….Joan Jett on steroids.” – LA Beat

“More exciting and entertaining than any of the Resident Evil films, I Want Revenge will kick your ass with the rage of ‘Zombie Apocalypse,’ the vengeance-inciting title track (‘I Want Revenge’), the police van burning ‘Law Abiding Citizen,’ and the machine-gun riffage of ‘PBJ.’  I Want Revenge really is like the musical version of Left 4 Dead, and it’ll leave you with hours of enjoyment and bloodshed (probably from banging your head into the wall after a failed one-man-moshpit in your bedroom).” – MusicReview.co.za

“First thing you have to know about Kill Matilda is they are going to rock the sh*t out of your skull. Either live or on I Want Revenge get ready for your head to explode with Heavy Riffs and Dusty’s ear piercing screams. But never overdoing the screams Dusty keeps the decibels in check. I got lucky and saw Kill Matilda before I got to listen to I Want Revenge and their live show just blew me away by how in your face their music is. With Harding pounding Guitar Riffs and the pounding volume to match each venue they play shakes the buildings rafters and leaves cracks in the foundations. This album is only a touch of what you can expect live, but in no way am I harping on the album I just have to get the point across of you need to see this band live.” – Kingston Music Reviews

“This is definitely a band to keep an eye on.” – Abort Mag

“One of B.C.’s big-city buzz bands” – Prince George Citizen

“A highly energetic show …they play hard and Dusty wails on vocals while engaging the audience with ease.” – Yell Magazine!

“I stood stoked and wanting more” – Renegade Rock Review

“They’re loud, crazy and out of fucking CONTROL!” – Ninth Circle Radio

“Kill Matilda’s sound can and will appeal to wider audiences.” – WestCoastWeasel.com
