It's been awhile since we've caught up with Kill the Drama, but the local modern rock quartet has been plenty busy. While they've yet to release a follow-up to their debut 2007 album, Close Friends with Sharp Knives (read my profile/review here) the band's been focusing on building a fanbase and have recently put together two music videos, currently available on HAVOC Video OnDemand (through Comcast and Armstrong Cable).
Long a champion of battle-of-the-bands events in town, Kill the Drama's video for "Live Before It Kills You" is the result of winning a contest sponsored by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last year. Download a free mp3 of the song here.
Kill the Drama's next Pittsburgh show is May 30 at Altar Bar in the Strip District, part of the Sardonyx Music Conference. The band says they plan to tour in the fall and will be playing a festival in Portugal in June.
