Description

Kicked In started out as Ray and Greg getting some songs together up at the Kresge music co-op at UCSC. After trying out a couple other drummers, Peter joined the band on drums. They tightened up their sound after a few practices and recorded a DIY demo on Pete's reel-to-reel 8-track in Greg's garage.

Peter left for adventures up north and a few months later, Patrick signed on to hit the skins with Kicked In. They've played various shows to great reception and just finished recording their new EP, "Apocalyptic Red" with Joe Clements at The Compound. Mastering was done by Nate Allen at Last Drop Mastering.

They're always up for playing anywhere, as long as there's a good time to be had. Shows, parties, and ice cream socials are all fair game so hit them up!
