Kiss Kiss
Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss originated at Purchase college, formed by Josh Benash and Jared Karns. The band has seen many line-up changes and now consists of Mike Abiuso, Rebecca Schlappich, and Patrick Southern, in addition to the original two members. Signed to Eyeball Records Kiss Kiss has put out one EP, a full length LP, "Reality Vs. the Optimist" and has just finished their Sophomore record titled, "The Meek Shall Inherit what's Left." Kiss Kiss has been described as, "the soundtrack to your mental hospital stay...their music is completely unique, catchy, dark, and most of all, energetic." Their albums are meticulously orchestrated with strings, horns, and choir on top of their four piece rock ensemble. The music is well translated to their live performance accompanied by high energy and amusing anecdotes.
