Baltimore, MD based rock band THRILLKILLER has released the official music video for their single “San Francisco Moto,” the title track of their June 2nd released EP.
San Francisco Moto takes the explosive influences of the band to the next level. From the synthwave inspired track, the King of 1984 to the funk/metal fusion songs Wicked Rhythm and San Francisco Moto, this album includes songs recorded and engineered by Tony Corelli (Deep End Studios) and Derrin Ruschell (Stingray Studios). San Francisco Moto visually takes heavily from 80s cinema as explored upon in the two music videos supporting the release(“The King of 1984” and “San Francisco Moto”).
The music videos dive head first into 80 sci fi/action movie territory telling the story of Rex Razor, Delorean driving time cop, part cinematic experience, part music video, the visual and auditory experience that Thrillkiller delivers is truly unique.
“This EP pushed the boundaries of our music into uncharted territory. The Brothers Johnson, The Gap Band, and a host of other classic funk acts made a huge impact on songs like ‘San Francisco Moto’ and ‘Wicked Rhythm,’ while the stylings of synthwave acts like Lazerhawk and Mitch Murder were sprinkled into The King of 1984 and the Theme of Rex Razor. Last Horizon takes elements from a mixture of heavy metal and a little bit of Bad Religion rounding out the track listing nicely. The release also doubles as a companion piece for our music video universe we’ve recently launched, complete with full blown 80s movie artwork.” – Rob Bradley

After the success of their debut music video, “The King of 1984,” Thrillkiller was back to work at new releases and a follow up video based off of their new single, “San Francisco Moto.” Like the last video, Thrillkiller launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to let fans take part in the creation process of this upcoming music video event followed by a summer tour along the east coast.

“Thrillkiller has the chance to be the breakout band of 2016” Andy Davis, Heavy Metal Time Machine
“Every track, member, and part absolutely slays, taking a wander down through the different levels of writing and mix never becomes boring. This is no cheap mock up behind a single individual, nor a gilded lily.” Si Marks, You Can Find Me On The Edge
Their members have shared the stage with acts such as The Protomen, Sebastian Bach, Metal Church, Stratovarius, Pagan’s Mind, Symphony X, and many more. Exploding on the scene in the fall of 2015, mixing elements of metal, rock, pop and others, Thrillkiller delivers a viciously unique style of music.
