“On Call of the Void, the riffs are relentless as the band channels gloom through minor chords that at times creep towards metal territory. The spirit of darkness breathes through the lyrics as Kilmore reminds us rock is alive and well.” – Jonathan Briggins, The Coast
“the heavy and bluesy sounds really drive home those themes of reckless behaviour and dark feelings… The band effectively portray their intended emotions and messages to the listener through their music while providing them with something to bang their head—or groove—to.” – The East Magazine
Talked a little about “Call of the Void” and our Listening Party coming up on May 31st on Global Halifax.
We filmed a video, at Peggy’s Cove, NS for our first single “Seven Seas” off of our upcoming album “Call of the Void” Directed, filmed and edited by Crystal Porter.

You can stream City Lights now on Exclaim!
Halifax’s Kilmore list their genre on Facebook as “riff rock,” and the band’s new EP certainly lives up to that description. Here at Exclaim!, we’ve got the premiere of that five-song collection.
The opening title cut begins City Lights with brawny, distorted guitar licks, steadily pounding drums and wailing vocals akin to classic rock radio. This sets the tone for the four-piece’s muscular sound, as tracks like “Rising Sun” and “Weight of the World” are similarly stuffed with meaty riffage, while “Peace of Mind” is slightly more restrained and slow-burning. The curveball is “Younger Years,” which ventures into a folk rock direction with its acoustic strums.
The EP was recorded with Erien Eady-Ward at Halifax’s Codapop Studios. Scroll past the band’s Canadian tour schedule below to listen to it in full before it arrives on June 5.
