Kissed By Kate

Five Piece hard rock outfit “Kissed By Kate” from Poole in Dorset have just released a brand new single entitled “Letters From 792” with can be purchased and previewed from their Bandcamp page, the song costs just £1 with all the profits from the sale of the single going to the Help 4 Heroes charity.

The reason that the band wrote the song was because they have all grown up with the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, which are constantly being shown on the television and in the newspapers. They wanted to show their appreciation for the brave service men and women that have laid down there lives for our country and those who are serving now. The song is written from the point of view of a soldier, about what emotions that they thought a soldier would be going through whilst on tour away from their friends and family. The band did a fair bit of research and spoke to quite allot of local marines to see what they thought of them writing the song, the marines were all very supportive offering their own take on going to war and what it’s like.

The single was released on the 11th November, remembrance Sunday as a mark of respect to all the military personnel who have lost their lives while carrying out their duty. The single is a follow up from their previous impressive debut EP “Ninety One Days On”, which featured four quality tracks including the lead song “Addiction” which was featured in their 1st video(See Below) “Letters From 792” is a 3 minute 29 second piece of no holes barded hard hitting rock, the passionate vocals and the twin guitars take you on a short journey, with the lyrics giving you a short insight into the life of a solider serving on the front line in a battle zone. Part way through the tracks pace takes a change to a heavy up tempo as if to represent the adrenaline rush that a soldier may go through on patrol or in a fire fight. A great song showing some nicely crafted music and some well thought out song writing showing lots of further potential for the future.
