This week’s unsigned artist is Katius a five piece pop punk/rock band from Dayton, Ohio. The band is comprised of members: ProKyle Elwood (lead vocals), Danny (guitar), Drew (bass), and Kyle Steele (drums).
I found this band on MySpace. After sampling some songs on their page, I was instantly hooked on their mix of crisp, aggressive punk rock riffs and harmonizing melodic pop rock ballads.
Drawing on influences from bands such as Blink-182, Lost Prophets, New Found Glory, Fall Out Boy, and Green Day, Katius has untapped an unadulterated sound that which Steel calls “…a cross between new Fall Out Boy meets old Blink-182, with some hardcore sprinkled in like salt on french fries.”
Call it what you want, one thing is for sure; you’ll definitely like this band and won’t be able to get them out of your head.
The band is offering free downloads of their music through the website, True Anthem, and are a part of the Wonka Battle of the Bands. Get the download here!
