Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

PonyKiller, consisting of Collin Yeo, Ben Deffendall, Trevor Darling, and Tim Nolan, is a high-def grunge / psychedelic POG rock with modern pop undercurrents. With loud, driving rhythms, catchy, haunting leads and morose yet uplifting vocals, PonyKiller grabs the attention of a diverse audience. Lending from such influences as King Crimson, The Melvins, and Growing, remnants of these styles are present, however a new style is born. Lead singer / rhythm guitar player Collin Yeo, also the bass guitar player for popular touring band Arson Anthem, has a voice best compared to Jim Morrison mixed with Jim Varney. Ben Deffendall, lead guitar, produces creepy, wailing solos, accompanied by looming hooks. Trevor Darling the bass guitar player puts out a loud, clean tone that punches through and drives the music. Drummer Tim Nolan hails from a John Bonham / Stuart Copeland pulpit, often shifting the dynamics of the songs. With a newly signed contract with Housecore Records, PonyKiller is anticipating the release of their first full length album "The Wilderness". PonyKiller can play with bands of varying styles, ranging from Dead Meadow to haarp. This New Orleans based band can be contacted at ponykillernola@gmail.com.
