Melodic Punksters ‘MaLoKai’ merge engaging fast-paced rock with tantalising pop hooks; the result is undeniably contagious and alluring. The Punk-poppers nationally unveil their brand new EP ‘Heart Beats’ on Monday 13th February 2012, through Nameless/Faceless Records and all digital sources.
Originally formed in 2007, MaLoKai had a series of line-up changes during their early years with meandering guitars and bassists weaving into and out of the band, however the nucleus of the band managed to move forward. Continually touring and recording, they built up a sturdy underground UK fan-base in the process. Critical acclaim and
impressive responses were amassed from many quarters for the band’s debut album ‘Perception Of Reality’. However MaLoKai felt that they had yet to find their true potential, and so decided to part ways with members that could not commit and drafted in new recruits. Now with a fully solidified line-up consisting of Alex Greig (Vocals &Guitar), Andy Bell (Guitar), Dack Powell (Guitar), G Suaznabar (Bass) and Dave Williams on drums, and fuelled by countless rehearsals and extensive writing under their belts, the energised quintet have crafted their sound and have a new vigour for life.
The irrepressible punksters headed to the recording studio during the summer of 2011 to lay down tracks for their new EP and they came out of the studio with a real belter of a record. The EP features six blistering tunes loaded with up-tempo arrangements, soaring guitars, and infectious choruses that’ll require a crowbar to prise out of your head. From the ridiculously catchy ‘Rumours’, through to the record’s namesake ‘Heart Beats’, and the stomping ‘What’s Inside’, the UK melodic mobsters have produced a record that is stacked with killer hooks and contagious kinetic energy!
–MaLoKai will tour throughout the UK in 2012 in support of their spectacular new video and explosive new Ep ‘Heart Beats’, out 13th February 2012 —
