Kate of Kale @ Baybeats 2005

Kate of Kale @ Baybeats 2005

I love punk rock and this is one of the local bands I like so much. An awesome band with powerful tunes and intense, emotive songs. Really gets you adrenalized!

This is Kate of Kale. Formed in Dec of 1999, Kate Of Kale has become one of the main-stays of the local music scene after playing numerous major shows including 2 Baybeats festival at The Esplanade in 2002 and in 2005. Built on friendship, hard work and passion for making music, the band has two CDs, 2 Malaysian tours and numerous compilation releases under their belt. Juggling work, school and national service, the band stepped into Snakeweed Acoustic Labs and recorded their latest full-length effort, This Hole We Call Our Heart.

The new record is available in stores, released by homegrown up and coming punk/hardcore label, Fixation Records. First Stance Records of Malaysia has also recently picked up the bands CD for distribution in Malaysia and put the guys on tour with Utarid (KL's most exciting screamo band). The boys are in the midst of recording their 3rd full length album, so keep a lookout at their website.

These are the photographs I took during their live performance at Baybeats 2005. They performed well and I really enjoyed it photographically & musically. Hope you enjoy viewing the pictures as much as I took them. For their live performance, you can check out their alternate website here.
