Zombie hunters by day and sweaty dance punkers by night, Kill Matilda is a sexy band of nomads that have played over 181 shows coast to coast across Canada since 2008. This fall, the Vancouver three-piece finally takes its energetic act to the USA for an awesome six-month tour of zombie-slaying madness. Frontperson Dusty Exner has been called “Joan Jett on steroids” vocally and the band has been compared to everything from “riotgrrl” to “a mix of Die Mannequin, Concrete Blonde, Switchblade Symphony and Danko Jones.”
Kill Matilda has been featured at festivals such as NXNE, Hamilton Spring Music Festival, Soreal Fest, Grindyourmind Drummondville Metal Fest, and many more. The band has opened for such legends as the Vibrators, Guttermouth, the Brains, Die Mannequin, Econoline Crush and Powerman 5000. Their relentless DIY work ethic has seen the band call Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto home over the last four years and has won them the attention of industry giants such as GGGarth Richardson, Ben Kaplan & Scott Ternan, who recorded & mixed 6 songs with the band at Fader Mountain Studios in Vancouver, BC.

“Kill Matilda may be the best punk band you haven’t heard of. Based out of Canada and solely a DIY band, it’s very possible this female-fronted fist full of punk fury has flown under your radar. Not anymore, though. Their latest release, the#Punk#Zombie#RocknRoll EP is a throwback to the classic punk movement with a little bit of horror rock mixed in, serving as an impressive tribute to The Misfits (not that new “Misfits” crap- the real Misfits).” – The Front Row Report
“Opening up with Pomegranate and through to I Want Revenge hints of The Misfits and The Cramps instantly emerge from this vigorous group. Zombie Apocalypse and Law Abiding Citizen continue the mayhem through to the penultimate track PBJ which typifies your current day zombie. What really caught my attention was the final track Geisha With A Switchblade, this is a powerful depictive of the ultimate in revenge to a bad guy whilst enjoying every last detail. Check below the new video for Law Abiding Citizen and enjoy, if you’re nearby any venues these guys are tearing then get yourself down for a set of carnage!” All About The Rock UK
“I can’t say enough good things about this 6 track EP from KILL MATILDA. This is one of those gems that you’ll be happy you found early enough before their RISE amongst the LIVING! Check em out” – Heavy Metal ICU
“this is a fresh and exciting burst of musical energy that looks forward to the future rather than to late-90s nonsense. From the start, I loved the power of Dusty Exner’s voice. She can scream with the best of them, but—lucky for us—can also carry a tune.” – Sea of Tranquility
“A six track extended player crashed landed in my inbox like a bull in a china shop thanks to a Punk Rock outfit called Kill Matilda… The title of this E.P. is “#Punk#Zombie#RocknRoll” and it takes no prisoners!” – Rockulus Maximus
“if there’s one thing thing guaranteed to wake the slumbering beast from the annual hibernation it’s some gravelly voiced and quite frankly excellent punk. If you like Hole, The Misfits or The Offspring (and Yeah, Yeah Yeahs,) and let’s face it who doesn’t, then these guys are right up your alley…down and dirty punk with sexy riffs and a promise of blood, fists and stomping buy this on March 4th. You won’t regret it.” – Wyrd Ways Show Review
“The EP is packed full of high energy, powerful tracks. I personally find that the band makes you feel like you are at their show, rocking out with them. It’s a mix of songs that gives you chills and makes you feel empowered by just listening.” – Canadian Beats
