Single Review: COLOR KILLER ‘Not Your Valentine’

Marlborough (MA) punk prodigy band Color Killer is back in action with their latest single release Not Your Valentine!

This is a two minute straight up jam that speaks out against everyone’s favorite made up Hallmark Holiday. It creatively expresses how frustrating it is that we all feel like we ‘have to validate’ our love for one another with a box of chocolates or a stuffed animal with some kind of lame love related pun about you being PUURR-FECT. Color Killer always makes me laugh at the creativity of their tunes. They’re always relatable and quite obviously about things that would frustrate a young punker in their age group especially; however, they are also about things that us “older” folks are equally frustrated with as well; like how much winter sucks or how creepy spiders can be.

Color Killer has come a long way, in what feels like such a sort time, since the very first time I saw their video performance of “Down With Winter” about two years ago. They’re always so cool and so fun! Whenever I happen to see that they have a new release I know it’s always going to be worth my time to check it out! Not Your Valentine is available NOW on Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play! Be sure to give them a like and a follow if you haven’t already so that you don’t miss out on what’s coming up next!

COLOR KILLER Save Punk Documentary Announcement

Hello Maeniacs! There is something fantastic a-foot in Marlborough, Massachusetts that we would like to bring to your attention! Punk prodigy band Color Killer is at it again! Not only are they the youngest band EVER to play Vans Warped Tour, but they have now teamed up with Ironbound Films to help capture their unbelievable journey in it’s latest documentary COLOR KILLER SAVE PUNK.

COLOR KILLER SAVE PUNK, a feature-length documentary, follows Dylan, Lincoln, Matt, and Nate on their arduous journey from a middle school talent show to Vans Warped Tour this summer. Beyond being a punk band composed of 8-12-year-olds, Color Killer is a bit of an anomaly. They don’t see themselves as a viral sensation—although they are—or novelty act. They are a punk band rising to the top as any punk band would; through basement practices, dive bars, and punk festivals. They, however, have just begun their journey a bit younger than most bands typically have.

The title refers to America’s first generation with internet technology readily available from a young age. This supposedly makes Generation Z’s members detached, unsocial, and unfocused. Color Killer offers a striking exception to that idea; and perhaps, some much-needed hope for our times.

Daniel A. Miller, Seth Kramer, and Jeremy Newberger are with Ironbound Films, the directors of COLOR KILLER SAVE PUNK. Ironbound creates documentaries for theaters, television, and the web. One of their films, as well as the most recent- THE ANTHROPOLOGIST, was recognized by L.A Times as “utterly winning” and “stealthily insightful” by The NY Times. It premiered at DOC NYC, screened at more than 50 film festivals, and won numerous awards. It hit theaters by the care of Argot Pictures in 2016 and maintains a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes! Which, is very impressive! Sounds like the perfect combination of people to bring together this documentary! All they need is just a little help from their loving and supportive fan base!
