Konniption Fit to release full length CD January 30


long awaited and much anticipated official CD release of Detroit’s own
Konniption Fit, has been scheduled for January 30, 2010 with a
fun-packed line-up at TNT’s. The night will include not only great
music from a variety of bands, but also a number of exciting giveaway
and raffle items from Coffin Case, one of Konniption Fit’s endorsement

Konniption Fit’s “Ballistic”, produced by
Andy Patalan at The Loft studios in Saline Michigan, features 12 songs
of fun, upbeat Pop Punk sharpened to a razors edge with Modern Rock.
Stylistically, the songs on “Ballistic” run the gamut of styles and
influences, from the sounds of a riveting racehorse riot to moments of
harmonic texture and melodicism, all coming together as a whole which
can only be described as uniquely Konniption Fit. Catchy, lush
harmonies and melodies are contrasted with the roar of Marshall-driven
guitars, sledgehammer drums and tight, pulsing bass lines, causing the
listener to want to sing along and slam dance all at the same time.

Fit is a punk/pop/rock band with a heavier edge, hailing from Detroit,
MI. Their sound covers many sonic territories, from crunchy ear candy
to rebellious moments of anarchy, yet all mixes cohesively into one
band. Their goal? To write music with a raw, rebellious attitude, play
music with conviction, and devastate the stage with an onslaught of
catchy melodies, high energy performances, and an unforgettable show.
Konniption Fit is brimming with hook-laden, pop punk bliss contrasted
with guitar-driven modern rock, creating a fresh sound with
mass-crossover appeal. A bright light emerging from Motor City, this is
a band that isn’t afraid to step outside the darker Detroit music “box”
and tap into diverse influences.

While working hard to
promote their live show, Konniption Fit has had the opportunity to play
some of Detroit’s largest and best venues, including the Royal Oak
Music Theater, St Andrews Hall, The Crofoot and The Emerald Theater.
Through hard work, they’ve garnered stage time with national recording
acts such as Days of the New, Taproot, Sponge, Ashes of Soma, WWE Diva
Christy Hemme, The Luchagors (featuring Lita from WWE), The Muggs
(“Greatest American Band” finalists), Frequency 54 and Crud to name a
few. Recently, the band just finished up their second Midwest tour,
hitting cities such as Chicago, Fort Wayne, Pittsburgh, Toledo,
Cincinnati and more.

Date: Saturday, January 30th, 2010
Time: 8 p.m.
Location: TNT’s Bar & Grill, 35101 Harper Rd., Clinton Twp., 48035 (Phone: 586-792-1435)
Details: All Ages, Admission $5.00
Bands: Konniption Fit, Potty Mouth Sissys, Panic Trigger, The Pilz, and Maceri

Some things are just meant to be. When
the legendary Nikki Corvette arrived with equally revered rock critic Robert
Matheu at a Gore Gore Girls show in Los Angeles, he instinctively knew
that she and bandleader Amy Gore would be natural compatriots. Both women have
toured the world, rejecting trends and gimmickry to play the authentic,
powerful rock n’ roll they’ve made their religion.  They became friends
that night, not industry associates but real pals. When Corvette relocated to her
native Detroit for family reasons, she and Gore began to spend time together,
spending hours talking about music while hanging out by the record

With members of each woman’s
bands in different cities, they originally conceived the idea of doing a punk
cover band, playing their favorite songs from bands like the Buzzcocks and the
Damned. That soon changed when Nikki brought her tune “Lustfully Yours” to the
table. Amy Gore, a formidable guitarist and writer, began writing songs
specifically for Nikki that carry on the ‘Shangri-Las meets Ramones’ v sound
she is famous for while incorporating lyrics rejecting the artificiality of
current feminine ideals (“Fake It”) and making stand for the hedonistic fun of
dancing, cars and staying up all night. “Rock n’ roll, above all else, should
be fun,” said Gore.

Enlisting Lianna Castillo
(bassist from the Gore Gore Girls) and Al King (Powertrane) on drums, the
line-up was compled, and Gorevette began playing festivals and club shows. When
it came time to record their EP, they split time between both Jim Diamond’s
Ghetto Recordings in Detroit and Rock City Studios in Ann Arbor, MI, Gore
producing and the songs. Gorevette were honored to have Radio Birdman guitarist
Deniz Tek playing lead guitar on 'Nothin's Gonna Stop Me' and trading licks
with Amy Gore on 'Brand New Lover'.

The new tracks are compiled for The
Lustfully Yours
EP, available Tuesday, January 26th on itunes
USA and Internationally, Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic, IMVU, LimeWire Store,
Amazon MP3 & Amazon on Demand. The video for “Lustfully Yours” has just
been unveiled as well! Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taMdqu7R-BY

About Nikki: 1978 saw the birth
of Nikki Corvette's career with the release of the Nikki Corvette and the
Convertibles single "Young and Crazy" b/w "Backseat Love"
and "Criminal Element". This was all happening in Detroit during the
punk rock explosion where Nikki would see herself sharing the stage with The
Ramones, Johnny Thunders, The Romantics and many more. By 1980 the band name
was changed to Nikki and the Corvettes. They would release their legendary
debut album on BOMP! Records, an incredible mixture of 60's style girl group
vocals, twangy guitars and teenage pop with plenty of punk rock attitude, with
songs about cruisin for boys and fun in the sun. The album and band would
influence everyone from The Go-go's (to go for more of a "pop" sound)
all the way to The Donnas (see the lyric "I wanna be like Nikki Corvette"
from Gimmie My Radio), and around the world to Japan with The 5678's.

About Amy Gore: Amy was born in
Detroit, Michigan and in 1997 she founded the Gore Gore Girls, the first of few all-female bands of
the garage rock genre. Along with other bands such as
The White Stripes, The Dirtbombs, The Detroit Cobras and others, the Gore Gore Girls
helped establish the modern American garage rock scene of the 1990s in Detroit.
Gore’s talents are myriad: she is a ferocious guitarist who has helped bring
Gretsch hollowbody guitars their due, a songwriter who distills the perfect pop
gem and a studio pro whose unerring ear brought Gorevette to light.
