    Default Listen to my band Warp Kings

    Check out my new band Warp Kings! We have a new single out now - Hey Bulldog (The Beatles). The first song we recorded was Midlife Crisis (Faith No More).

    Hope you like it! I do both mixing and mastering of the songs and play all the guitars.

    Have a listen!

    I can only say this ....covering Beatles is high risk in my experience. But your band pulls it off with flying colours. And not one of the easier ones either. Guitar lines, vocals, harmonies, mix, feel all terrific. Live in studio or patched together? Your guitar rig was? Just a great listen. Also saw the other one called midlife crisis. Liked it but not as much. Needs more guitar. Congrats, sir.

    Hey, that's exciting news, Robert! Pretty amazing that you've put it together in the midst of the general confinement. Excellent take on Hey Bulldog - sounded like you all had fun putting it together.

    I love the "midlife crisis" quite a departure from what you played before isn't it ? I found it nicely produced and with great parts quite a mix of influences there but nicely molded together. The singer is really good

    I have to admit that I wasn't familiar with either song before. I like the covers quite a lot. The mix seems excellent as well. Who's all in the band? How did it all come together?

    Thanks guys. The band came together as a "Covid-19 Isolation Project". We were all bored and wanted to do something together. It's my drummer friend who got it started - he knew some people who knew some people... the bass player in the band is in a slightly more famous band called Nickelback...

    What do you get when you have a handful of excellent musicians, locked out of playing live gigs in early 2020? For members Brandon Kroeger, Mike Kroeger, Scott Holman, Robert Renman and Greg Kisser, the answer became obvious: start a virtual super-band dedicated to playing epic covers in homage to the songs that inspired each of them in their own warped way.

    Originating at the height of the COVID-19 lock-down, what started out as a one-off project to cover one of our all-time favorite tunes, the 1992 alternative metal hit Midlife Crisis, by Faith No More, evolved very quickly. Even though the band members are located far apart (for instance there's a span of over 2,700 kilometers between Brandon and Mike), with the technology available and experience of the group, distance is no barrier. Their musical chemistry of the group immediately became apparent. Within a few days of the first mix of Midlife Crisis being completed, the name Warp Kings was adopted. The following day the bands logo was also completed.
