A sunny power-pop-punk duo, The Kickstand Band has been performing and recording in their hometown of Detroit since 2011. Their debut album, Puppy Love, is an introduction to their blend of garage-tinged grit with melodic guitars and sticky pop hooks. The band then released their Summer EP, featuring an expanded sonic range to compliment their brand of boy/girl harmonies and focused songwriting. As 2014 kicked off, the group got to work building a DIY studio-space and began recording their second full-length album. In the meantime, they have continued to deliver exciting live performances, featuring a dynamic homemade light show and drums sampled from their favorite old records at clubs and festivals including Cincinnati's MidPoint Music Fest and Toronto's North By North East.

"Smith and Young harmonize in a trashy almost haphazard rock 'n' roll way that is both raw and sweet... and there's a surfy element that is instantly infectious. Think the '50s punkabilly of The Cramps and the breezy pop brilliance of The Beach Boys, all mixed up in a Boone's Farm warehouse." - Detroit Metrotimes
