This line up played a handful of shows until Robert left the band and was replaced by June Cate (Impel, I Wish I). Three more songs were released by Indecision Records with a split 7" with Dempsey (ex-Undertow) and a song featured on the "Guilty by Association" compilation. A west coast tour soon followed with June and Oscar pulling double duty since Impel came along as well. Over time doing both bands became too much and they chose to stick with Impel.
Todd Beattie (Unbroken) joined on bass and newcomer Chris Perreira came in on guitar. Soon a two song single was titled "Meant to Let You Down" was released on Simba followed with the bands first European tour. After this tour the band was dealt a crushing blow when co-founder Barry Kellman decided to leave the group. Barry's volume and drumming style was always a key factor in Kill Holiday's live shows and would be difficult to replace.
In came band photographer Gabriel Gamboa (I Wish I) on drums and a new direction would soon be in place. Growing tired of the typical post hardcore sound, Kill Holiday decided to draw from other musical influences that were always just as important as hardcore bands were. Taking a big risk "Somewhere Between the Wrong is Right" was released by Revelation Records receiving mixed reveiws. People didn't know what to make because this wasn't the same Kill Holiday they had been used to hearing. This record was followed with a European tour with local friends Jejune and a US tour after that.
After one more tour of the US the same year Kill Holiday decided to call it quits in 2000. (taken from Kill Holidays myspace page) Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
