Woah! Has it been since May since we last updated this thing!??!?

Yo what's up everyone!

Since we're one of the few heavy bands on this thing - I'd thought I'd come by and give you guys (at least those that are actually into less commercial tunes) an update on your favorite Chinese hardcore band...King Ly Chee :-)

Summer has been a blast...we played in Laguna, Philippines which was SICK as hell. Great scene out there and the kids ate us up! It was amazing...for the time being we couldn't imagine ever playing in HK again - especially if an HK show has to follow up a show like in the Philippines! Any of you into rock should definitely head out there ASAP to check out the music, musicians, bands, and overall healthy environment for GOOD music. You won't hear any of that local Canto-pop garbage out there! Even when you're in a taxi driving around Manila the radio stations all blast great rock music, and if it is pop-rock they are ALL at Soler's calibre (Soler should easily be EVERY local HK pop musician's standard. If they can't sound or perform as good as them, they should not even be allowed to record an album or be handed a contract). Imagine that? Every pop-rock band in the Philippines is at least as good as Soler.

Now that we're back in HK, we're preparing for a December tour of China. We're going up for 10 days playing about 8 shows. The tour starts in Wuhan on Dec 20 and will end Dec 27...it's going to be a great time! We'll be playing with Chinese legendary punk, hardcore and metal bands...it's going to be a cold time, but unlike HK, at least there's a HUGE community of people that are into this type of music. In HK, being "lonely" doesn't even begin to describe the distance we feel from any sort of local music-related happenings. So to be able to go to places like China, Philippines, Malaysia, etc., and be surrounded by magazines, reporters, radio, and an audience who ALL listen to this type of music - it's just amazing and we're insanely grateful.

Okay - hopefully it won't be another 5 months before I update this thing...actually, true KLC fans already know that I update www.kinglychee.com daily so you should already know about everything that I've typed here...
