KICKED IN THE HEAD BY A HORSE: Pittsburgh Hardcore Unit Unveils New Single "Charles Bonnet;"


KICKED IN THE HEAD BY A HORSE Premieres New Single "Charles Bonnet"

The band's secondly EP "Sporadic Dystrophy" is due out Sept. 15



Pittsburgh chaotic hardcore unit KICKED IN THE HEAD BY A HORSE is proud to announce the premiere of its latest single "Charles Bonnet," along with the album details for its upcoming second EP Sporadic Dystrophy, out independently Sept. 15.

The band comments: “This song plays into the ideas of losing a loved one, whether a friend or lover, along with paranoid hallucinations throughout the day. Is it your eyes playing tricks, or are you really losing your mind?”

Recorded and mixed by the band's Larry Rupp, with drums engineered by the band's Jacob Laurine, and the entire EP mastered by Dead Air Studios' Will Killingsworth (Fugitive, Full of Hell, They Leapt From Burning Windows), Sporadic Dystrophy's six tracks are laden with chonky riffs, groove and straight attitude, leading to a corrosive combination of death metal, mathcore and skramz.


Formed in 2022, KICKED IN THE HEAD BY A HORSE — or KITH BAH — is V. Kavanshansky, Larry Rupp, Nate Hoff and Jake Laurine, who all wanted to blend sounds from bands they love. The band's first EP, W55.12XA, established the band's feral dissonance and set the tone for the band lyrically, diving into subject matter that shouldn't be tough issues, such as gender equality and mental health.

Sporadic Dystrophy is to be released digitally on major platforms Sept. 15 independently.
