Since 2009 KILL LINCOLN has turned the North American ska-punk scene on its head; imagine the anthemic energy of Less Than Jake, the tight musicality of Streetlight Manifesto, and the raw punk intensity of Kid Dynamite all rolled into one dynamic gravity-defying package.  With a legion of die-hard fans in their hometown of Washington DC, Kill Lincoln has developed a nation-wide cult following through years of constant touring, national and international festival dates, and providing tour support for The Pietasters, Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, and Big D and The Kids Table. Their live show has become legendary at venues across the US, mixing everything from stage dives to sing-alongs with a non-stop high energy ska-punk assault. Combining speedy third wave ska punk, catchy sing along pop-punk, and the breakneck hardcore Washington DC is known for, Kill Lincoln is a breath of fresh air in a sea of the current Hawaiian shirt-clad ska-punk clones. If American Ska-Punk has a fourth wave, Kill Lincoln is riding high on top of it.

  • “This band is pretty damn good and I want to hear more! The songs are all pretty complex, so ska is included sometimes, but overall they are punk-heavy tunes with catchy singalongs and fast rhythms. The basic goal of their label is to highlight what they feel are the best examples of the up and coming ska-punk bands and Good Riddance to Good Advice is a great illustration of that goal. “ PETE VINCELLI, PUNKNEWS.ORG

  • “Kill Lincoln is single handedly kept the genre alive in DC as they absolutely tore up the venue. The band is a perfect blend of punk and ska, and depending on the song you can hear the different facets of the group. I really think this band has a very bright future ahead of them.” TYLER OSBORNE UNDERTHEGUNREVIEW.COM

  • “Our favorite ska-punk band!” TONY SHRUM NEW NOISE MAGAZINE

  • “Fast riffs, pounding beats, gang vocals and the occasional melody from the horn section. The songs have great energy and keep my attention on every listen.” MARK KRAUSS, PUNKNEWS.ORG
