'Keystone EP featuring lead single The Busker'

Avalanche Records
*"One of the best live bands in the country" Hot Press*
*"Well constructed songs and a great live act" Metro*
*"These songs show why they are earning such a strong reputation as a live group" Drop-D magazine*

IN the blue corner with their Dukes up and ready to leave their mark all over 2011 are serious musical contenders *TKO*. Since forming two years ago the Dublin-based sextet have been punching well above their weight opening shows for heavyweights such as The Frames, The Wailers, The Waterboys, Martha Wainwright, Mercury Rev and Damien Dempsey. They have also made countless festival appearances including Temple House, Sea Sessions, Festivals of World Culture and Cork X Southwest, played numerous sell out shows at Whelan's in Dublin, secured a Top 40 Irish single, won the vote to play Castlepalooza by the readers of Hot Press, and reached the finals of the 'Our Thursdays' Guinness competition and performed at Arthur's Day 2010.

Having pummelled  audiences across the country into submission over hundreds of gigs, TKO have built a well-deserved reputation for their uplifting live shows, blending rock, jazz, funk and folk into a deadly and euphoric assault. The Dublin outfit were even hailed by Irish music bible Hot Press as "one of the best live bands in the country".
TKO will now bob and weave their way across the nation to deliver the killer blow with their sure-footed *'Keystone EP'* featuring the infectious lead single *'The Busker', *released on March 18th. Prepare to be floored!
