Biography

Detroit, United States (2003 – present)

Koffin Kats are a trio from Detroit, Michigan. Fusing the swing of classic rockabilly with the hot-wired energy and ghoulish imagery of Misfits, this band proves that high-octane psychobilly is still alive and kicking in the American midwest.

Koffin Kats were formed in 2003 by lead singer and upright bassist Vic Victor and guitarist/vocalist Tommy Koffin, who had been part of the Motor City punk scene for some time before trying their hands at the doom-struck twang of their punk-rockabilly fusion. The band has had a number of drummers come and go over the years, with Damian Detroit having the longest run (from 2003 to 2005); Katch (aka the “other” Goat); and E-Ball Walls, who played with the Kats for a spell in 2003, and rejoined the lineup in 2007. The trio released their first album, simply titled “Koffin Kats”, in 2004, and hit the road in support of the record.

Since then, the Koffin Kats have maintained a busy tour schedule, frequently gigging on the West Coast as well as closer to home, and have released three more long-players, 2005’s “Inhumane”, 2006’s “Straying From the Pack” and 2008’s “Drunk in the Daylight”. And in October of 2009 Released “Forever for Hire”

In Early 2010 saw the departure of Guitarist Tommy Koffin, and he was replaced by EZ Ian and now they are working on another album that is expected be out in late 2010 on Stomp Records
