An up-and-coming Boston band is coming home as part of a January tour, and is bringing some friends along for the ride.

Kill The Ideal (KTI), will be performing at the Carpenters Arms, Witham Street, on Friday for free.

KTI is an alternative-rock band consisting of leadvocalist/guitarist Ash, backing vocalist/guitarist Ross, bass guitarist/backing vocalist Luke and drummer/backing vocalist and Jordan.

Founded in 2010, Kill the Ideal’s Facebook page describes how the band pride themselves on ‘a huge, tight, energetic and compact live set with songs focused on catchy riffs, memorable vocal melodies, epic choruses and interesting dynamics’.

The bands influences include Alexisonfire, Biffy Clyro, Reuben and they share a like of 30 Seconds to Mars, Arcane Roots and Young Guns.

The foursome has supported bands including Hawthorne Heights, LostAlone Nine Black Alps, Lonely The Brave, The First, Climates and Emp!re.
Fans can follow the band on Twitter, Instagram and Bandcamp.

They can also watch the bands official video for the single Higher on Youtube.

In August, lead singer Ash described 2014 as a surreal year after the band signed to label Universal Atlanta records, headed out on two tours and released a new four-track EP.

They will be joined by Dutch band Mannheim, who describe themselves as ‘inventive noise rockers’ who are intriguingly described as ‘like a power clash between And So I Watch You From Afar, Shining, Zu and a free jazz driven locomotive’!

Mannheim consists of Mark on guitar, Henry on bass, Otto on saxophone and Roy on drums.

The two will be supported by fellow Boston-band The Ultraviolet.

Consisting of drummer Luke Mason, guitarist Sam Beck, bassist Emilio Parla and rhythm guitarist Ben Thorn, the band defines itself as alternative rock and pop rock.

The night is free to attend and starts at 7pm.
