Revelation: 77 When Unbroken split up in 1995, Steven Andrew Miller had already decided to make his side-project, Kill Holiday, his main priority. The idea was simple, to take it as far as it could go. The band had already undergone several renovations since the "Monitor Dependency" EP (New Age Records 1995) and years of rehearsals had followed. Line-up changes included Todd Beatty (former drummer of Unbroken) joining the band on bass. It wasn't until the two were joined by guitarist Chris Perreira in May 1997 that things started falling into place. A successful European tour was accomplished in November 1997 and, with the addition of drummer Gabriel Gamboa (of I Wish I), the band felt honored to accept a recording contract with Revelation Records. The evolution of Kill Holiday can be easily traced up to this point; the post-hardcore leanings of the first effort to the more turbulent issues of guilt dealt with on their more mature, fairly rock-oriented 1997 Simba Records 7", "Meant To Let You Down." But then it all went black. Life had dealt one of those blows that you simply don't recover from. One of those where everything you do is affected by it. Redirected by it. This is not the place to go into it, but it can't go unmentioned when trying to explain the breathtaking development that led to this record. Kill Holiday reinvented themselves and retraced the footsteps that led them to hardcore in the first place; great eighties pop like The Smiths, Ride, The Charlatans - Englishmen with ideals and emotions matched in intensity only by their subcultural counterparts in Washington DC at the time: Rites Of Spring, Embrace, Soulside. It makes sense. Awareness of your own mortality dictates your perspective, expression is gained in experience, and these guys have stories to tell. Boy, do they have stories to tell...
