Australian metalcore groundbreakers, I Killed The Prom Queen, unleash a video for latest track, Thirty One & Sevens. Watch the band perform their fiery new song in a post-apocalyptic world in the video (below), directed by Ryan Chamley in Geelong, Australia.
Thirty One & Sevens is a signature Prom Queen tune encompassing everything the band does well – monstrous riffing, jackhammer drumming and vocals that run the gamut from possessed death roars to emotive melodic overtures.
I Killed The Prom Queen returns to the US on the unstoppable Take Action Tour on March 12 in Ventura, CA with The Devil Wears Prada, The Ghost Inside and Dangerkids. Take Action Tour 2014 is presented by Living The Dream Foundation. Now in its twelfth year, the tour will help benefit the Living The Dream Foundation, a non-profit organisation that provides hope and inspiration to children and young adults afflicted with life threatening diseases. Ten percent of the cost of each ticket sold is donated to Living The Dream and Sub City to help further this cause making each person attending an active participant in making the world a better place.

Beloved, the newest album from I Killed The Prom Queen, is to be released on February 18 2014 on Epitaph Records in the US/February 17 in EU/February 14 in Australia. Fans are invited to pre-order Beloved by visiting epitaphstore.com.
By their own admission, I Killed The Prom Queen have endured a decidedly checkered past. Over the years the band saw multiple vocalist changes and other personnel exchanges, side-project sojourns and moonlighting in other bands, hiatuses and break-ups. Yet through it all, their musical output both live and on record has remained thoroughly inspired. I Killed The Prom Queen today is Jona Weinhofen formerly of Bring Me The Horizon on guitar/vocals/keyboard, Kevin Cameron on guitar, Jamie Hope as the screamer, ex-Day of Contempt Ben Coyte on bass and ex-Confession and Buried in Verona’s Shane O’Brien on drums.
I Killed The Prom Queen entered the studio in 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden with Fredrik Nordström (Bring Me The Horizon, At The Gates, In Flames, Dimmu Brogir, Architects UK) to record Beloved, their much-anticipated third album of epic proportions.
I Killed The Prom Queen have a fresh lease on life and a new found desire to leave an indelible mark on the world stage.
