The Calling video - one year anniversary 

Can't believe it's been one year since Killwave released the video for The Calling
here are some thoughts from our singer George about the lyrical message of the song:

"Somebody asked me if "The Calling" was written specifically for heterosexual males due to the emphasis on "girls" in the lyrics. The fun part regarding the song is that the term "girls" can be used on whomever you want regardless of their gender. I'd like to mention the quote from Chaz Bono, 'Gender is between your ears and not between your legs' In fact let's go beyond that. The song is about attraction working it's way in through the senses and about letting yourself enjoy that attraction, whether you like men, women or shoes: 

Sing along to your "girls" without holding back, we don't judge 

Enjoy the video once again with this in mind" - George

The Calling remix  

It's been one year since we released our second album Death By Distortion.
Our friends Carried By Currents played our release show at the Hideout with us and to celebrate the album's first anniversary we are sharing a remix of The Calling from Carried By Currents. Enjoy!

music news - Killwave album 3 

Hey all it's been while so we thought we'd take a minute to give everyone an update.
Soon after Death By Distortion came out our wonderful bassist Erik left the group due to a move and we started writing our 3rd album.
Currently George is working with our producer Jamie, here's a shot of George laying down some vocals and Jamie working the board.
