How many ways does Killola kick butt? Let’s count. First, they “freeleased” their entire 2nd album… Second, they’re one of the bands that’s revitalized the LA rock scene. Third, lead singer Lisa Rieffel is smokin’.– Los Angeles Times
This DIY band is going places… You’ll need to brace yourself for the drool-able Lisa Rieffel, who blazes over Sparks-like tracks like she just gave Gwen Stefani a bloody nose.” – LA Weekly

Los Angeles, CA – SoCal-based garage-pop quartet KILLOLA (www.killola.com), who recently partnered with digital distribution and live recording specialists, Aderra, Inc., announced dates for its Buy The Milk tour, a five-week outing in support of the upcoming, self-released album LET'S GET ASSOCIATED. The group are also producers for the upcoming feature-length film Girltrash: All Night Long (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1555440/) and are writing the music for the film’s narrative. See all tour dates below.
Killola have been garnering nationwide attention not only for their work ethic but also for their Sparks-meets-The Stooges blend of pop-conscious garage rock. Having self-released physical editions of their debut Louder, Louder! and the combination CD/DVD Live in Hollywood, the band has also given away a free download of their UK tour DVD and their sophomore album, I Am The Messer, which has received over 100,000 downloads through a free-download viral partnership with Skullcandy, one of the largest manufacturers of headphones and audio products. URB, Rhapsody, MTV.com, Pollstar, as well as UK publications Classic Rock Magazine and ArtRocker recognize Killola’s persistence and great music, leaving Alternative Press to comment,“For a band who operate out of their garage in Los Angeles, Killola have accomplished more than entire ZIP code’s worth of garage bands.
The video for Killola’s first single “Cracks In The Armor,” which “looks like the Muppets, underwater on mescaline,” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuybQTdwWyg&fmt=22) is available for purchase on iTunes as well as the sleazy “I Wanna See Your D*ck,” featuring trash-mouthed rapper Shunda K of Yo! Majesty.
"Touring seems like a sweaty blur of loud, dark nights with a million friends. So every time we get back to LA, we make plans to do it again because the blurred tour recollection is like a seductress," says vocalist Lisa Rieffel. "We just keep going back to her."

The live Killola show is quite seductive itself: non-ending smashy rock-riffs peppered with skin and pop melody. Killola is no stranger to technology and is 100 percent web-pervasive. In 2006, the band was one of the first acts to release an album via USB flash drive via tech-company Aderra. Killola is teaming up again with Aderra (www.aderra.net), who will provide tour services for Killola including a physical and online merchandise booth at select shows. “We are psyched to be headed out on the road with Killola, the first act we ever recorded live,” says Ed Donnelly, President of Aderra. He says, "They played a pivotal role in developing our instant concert recording system. Unlike other tech companies that are trapped in cyber space, our technology takes us right to the front row side by side with the fans." Aderra provides cutting edge technology for touring artists, recording and delivering live shows to fans as they leave the club or directly to their mobile phone. Donnelly continues, "In addition, we have a range of digital services including providing iPhone apps, web widgets, sponsored downloads and online distribution of both music and merchandise."
With an all-night theme in the vein of films such as Go, Superbad and Dazed And Confused, Girltrash: All Night Long was written by Angela Robinson, producer/writer of The L Word (Showtime) and Hung (HBO). Girltrash: All Night Long tells the story of five girls and one epic night (based on the wildly popular Showtime web-series Girltrash!). Killola vocalist Lisa Rieffel leads the cast on screen, acting alongside Gabrielle Christian (South of Nowhere), Michelle Lombardo (Entourage, Quarterlife), Mandy Musgrave (South of Nowhere), Rose Rollins (The L Word), Kate French (One Tree Hill) and Clementine Ford (The L Word).
Killola is Lisa Rieffel (vocals), Johnny Dunn (bass), Mike Ball (guitar) and Dan Grody (drums).
Aderra Inc. provides digital distribution of live concert recordings. We record a live show and instantly burn it to thousands of USB flash drives or send it straight to mobile phones for download.
