Kill The Ideal are ready to unleash their own brand of alternative rock at the Axe and Cleaver... as they celebrate their homecoming.

The four-piece - who are currently in talks regarding a possible record deal - will be taking to the stage at the West Street venue on tonight (Tuesday).

“There’s a lot of people who love their music in Boston, but I don’t think there are enough bands playing original material here right now,” said Ash Wilson, the band’s lead guitarist, singer and songwriter.

“We’re looking forward to playing the Axe again, it’s a great venue.

“This town had a great history of top bands playing here in the 1960s, and it would be good if we could get people coming out and watching more original live music.

“There are so many scene kids who want live music.”

Although members are now based across the midlands, Kill The Ideal began their lifespan in Boston three years ago.

In recent months, Kill The Ideal have played at a number of top venues across the region, including The Asylum in Birminhgham, Peterborough’s Met Lounge, West Street Live in Sheffield and Nottingham’s The Maze.

They have also supported well-known Manchester-based post-grunge outfit Nine Blacj Alps.

But many of their early gigs were at the Axe, and Wilson says the band can’t wait to return.

Kill The Ideal’s current line-up includes Wilson, as well as Ross Gallagher on guitar, Luke Farmer on bass and drummer Jordan Bell.

They will be supported on Tuesday night by Gypsy Heart and Disabled Angel.
