KODIAK JACK are a Portsmouth-based rock band, comprising Bryn Roberts (vocals), Matt Forster (drums), Kev Farren (bass), Jeff Arnold (lead guitar) and Jon Karp (guitar and backing vocals).
Having already released (and sold out) two EPs on Angry Badger Records, the debut album is ready to go! ‘Your Death: My Glory’ is composed like a Greatest Hits, there are no space fillers here, just 10 tracks of unbridled rock ‘n’ roll!
From the rock behemoth that is ‘Crossfire’ with its cinderblock sized riff, through to the Sabbath-meets-Kiss of ‘Wasted Youth’ or the truly epic ‘We Are Your Saviours’, this album is bursting with pop hooks hiding behind rock guitars.
‘Waves’ marries a dirty riff with a soaring vocal to dazzling effect and the title track is destined to become a live favourite with the irresistible sing-a-long chorus.
In the last 12 months alone they have supported the likes of Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big), Kobra And The Lotus (twice) and New Device as well as selling out their own hometown headline shows.
More shows are booked for the second half of 2011 with a support slot in place with Slovenian rockers Elvis Jackson and plans for their first UK mini tour are also taking shape. Wasted Youth is featured on Metal Hammers 'Best of British' cover CD that is released in September 2011.
The time is now, the Kodiak Jack bandwagon is leaving, get on while you still can!

“Truly anthemic stadium rock is the only way to describe their music. How long their music can be contained in venues with four walls only time will tell“- Steve Cox, ICR 105.7FM
