A trio of jam scene favorites – Ryan Stasik of Umphrey’s McGee, Mike Gantzer of Aqueous, and Mikey Carubba of Turkuaz – have formed a new punk band, dubbed Death Kings.
The band launched their debut single – “Fight” – on the most recent episode of Andy Frasco’s World Saving Podcast, featuring guest Tony Hawk. According to Gantzer, the release was perfect timing, as the soundtracks to the Tony Hawk games were a large influence on the new project.
Put more concisely by Stasik on a social media post: “Life is good. So is death.”
