Welcome

Happy October, everybody!

 

We’re finishing up the third week of our three-month fall US tour, and we’ve had a great time everywhere we’ve been.  Some highlights thus far: kicking off the tour to a packed house in Cleveland, fans crowd-surfing on body boards in Virginia Beach, partying with The Chop Tops in Fayetteville, hot tub shenanigans in Raleigh, and catching up with A Man Called Stu of Zombie Ghost Train in Nashville.

It’s a new month, and you know what that means…NEW CONTEST!!  We meet a lot of people while out on the road, and while everyone is unique in their own way, we find a common thread connecting most of our friends and fans: you’re very creative!  For this month’s contest, we want to challenge you to channel that creativity and…

…create a Halloween costume based on a Koffin Kats song!

It’s as simple as that!  Just pick any one of our songs and create a costume that reflects the song’s title, or the lyrics, or even an abstract interpretation of your choice.  There are really no rules when it comes to how you decide you fashion your costume, so feel free to get weird with it.

Once you’ve created your masterpiece, have someone take a picture of you dressed up in your full costume (no selfies!!) and post it on InstaGram, making sure to mention @thekoffinkats and use the hashtag #koffinkatshalloween.  NOTE: If you don’t mention us or use the hashtag, we won’t be able to track all of the photos, and your submission may be lost.  We’ll be adding all of the submissions to a Koffin Kats 2014 Halloween Costume Contest photo album on our Facebook page, and we’ll be encouraging you to direct your friends to vote for your costume by liking your picture there.  The costumes with the top three most likes win!  Here are the prizes…

Grand Prize:

- Autographed vinyl copy of Born Of The Motor

- Autographed 2014 fall tour poster featuring art by Tony Squindo

- 2014 fall tour dates t-shirt in your size

Second Prize:

- Autographed 2014 fall tour poster featuring art by Tony Squindo

- 2014 fall tour dates t-shirt in your size

Third Prize:

- 2014 fall tour dates t-shirt in your size

We look forward to checking out your costumes, and can’t wait to see what cool ideas you come up with.

MORE NEWS!! We recently created a free Android-based Koffin Kats mobile app that lets you listen to music, check out photos and videos, and get exclusive push notifications straight to your mobile device.  If you’re an iOS user, don’t worry.  We’re working on an app for you, as well.

In the meantime, and most important, we’ve still got over two months left to go on this tour, and most of our shows have presale tickets available at a discount, so head to our Upcoming Shows page, order your discounted tickets, and save yourself some money!!

See you on the road!  NOSTROVIA!!

  • Last night at @thewhiskyagogo was really special, and we felt the spirits of rock and roll past throughout the night. We thoroughly enjoyed having our boys from #Boston @oc45 tag along with us on the road these past couple of weeks. We will miss them, and we wish them the best of luck on the rest of their tour. If you like no-nonsense punk rock played by sexy dudes, give them a follow!! (And, when you see them, punch Adam in the nuts... 😉)
