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.
Over 800 shows played in the USA and Canada.
Direct support for Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, Big D and The Kids Table, The Pietasters, Fishbone, The Aggrolites, The Planet Smashers, The Queers, Mustard Plug, The Slackers, The Flatliners, The Ataris, Voodoo Glow Skulls, MU330, Spring-heeled Jack, Jay Navarro of the Suicide Machines, Ballyhoo, and We Are The Union.

“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
