Killing California began in January of 2004 in the southern Orange County beach town of San Clemente, Ca. The band set out to shake up the poppy Beach blvd. sound Orange County is typically known for by going for a revved up, dirtier, grittier approach. Void of your clichéd punk fashion the band used its thick guitars, intense vocals and rock–n–roll swagger to develop a unique sound not only to Orange County but to punk rock music in general. With their blue collar DIY work ethic, the band has been fortunate to build on one gig after the other, priding themselves on an intense live show which has lead to a loyal following, a steady tour schedule and numerous opening spots with national acts.
