Ana Kills is a Dirt Fest featured artist, and calling Michigan home, they’re excited to make new fans and hit the stage.

Take an unrepentant dose of the 90’s grunge era, splash it with a fiery ball of punk overtones and you have the core of the band that is Ana Kills. Formed just over two years ago within the Flint, Michigan region, band members Josh Augustine, Eric Gerholz, Anthony Palsgrove, and Kyle Phelps have carved out spot for themselves in the music circuit to great acclaim.

With an EP and a full length album release under their belts, they have blown the minds of fans around the region for some time now. Recent appearances at Bledfest and Buckham Alley Fest have only solidified the reason for them being hand-picked to play on the esteemed Dirt Fest this year.

Citing influences such as Pennywise, Thrice, and Nirvana their sound is a blend of old and new, a powerful blast of ass kicking sonic tunes that will leave you wanting more. Check out NRR’s interview with them and get your ass to Dirt Fest this year to see them play.
