Biography

San Francisco Bay Area of California

Karate High School is an American band from the San Francisco Bay Area of California, fronted by multi-instrumentalist and producer Paul McGuire. On March 21, 2006 the band released their debut album entitled Arcade Rock, a term which alludes to the influence of video game music in their sound. Karate High School’s second album, The League Of Tomorrow, released on September 4, 2007, further honed the band’s layered, keyboard-driven style of .

On November 11, 2008, Karate High School announced on their myspace blog that they had signed to Eyeball Records. Their third album, Invaders, was released on May 19, 2009.

The band played all of the west coast dates in America and Canada on the 2007 Warped Tour on the Ernie Ball Stage. They have toured with bands such as I Set My Friends on Fire, Foxy Shazam, Brokencyde, and The Medic Droid.

Due to Paul McGuire’s experience at a “haunted hotel” in Belgium, he disbanded Karate High School on July 31, 2010 to study parapsychology. The validity of his claim can be disputed, though, as he had also claimed he was moving to London to study zoology and joining a bizarre (most likely fake) organization called The Spacewalkers Foundation for Extraterrestrial Exploration and the Cirumvention of Planned Obsolescence. In an astounding show of dedication to the creative force behind this band (or an astounding lack of actual interest in it) very few people questioned any of these claims.

The last lineup before their demise was:

    первый альбом самый смак, в остальных, кроме пары-тройки песен, ничего не выделил

    I'm glad that meaning a band broke up doesn't mean I can't enjoy their music anymore.

    Don't know why auto-correct changes "88 Million Light Years Away" to "Million Light Years Away". The former is correct.

    Good evening, sir I have both good news and bad news What do you want to hear first? But before you open your mouth and give me an excuse to strike you down with a bright lightning bolt Let's just say that before you choose You should know that either way, you lose It's a tough choice, I know But that's how it goes "Well, if I had to know today, give me the good news first." The good news is it's the end of the line And all things heal with time So just let go The bad news is that while time heals all wounds It will eventually be the thing that kills you KHS 4ever ♥
