Peterborough, U.K.-based six-piece KHALO has inked a deal with Glasstone Records. The band's new mini-album will be released later in the year.
Formed in 2006, KHALO's music comes across as aggressive, progressive, epic and positive, with a desire for their audience to take something away from a show, so the lyrics are just as important to KHALO as the music. The band says, "Our lyrics aren't just about random things, they are one of the most important things to this band, we love hearing kids sing along at shows, you can feel the passion they have for our music."
The members of KHALO feel they are influenced by many bands. MISERY SIGNALS, DARKEST HOUR, UNEARTH, PARKWAY DRIVE, AS I LAY DYING, and COMEBACK KID seem to be some of the most prominent ones, although KHALO insist they are not reinventing the wheel, nor trying to, but writing music in order to reach out to people the same way their favorite bands have reached out to them through music.
