Take some Boys Like Girls and the zanyness of All Time Low and dash it with a little Metro Station and you will get the Huntington Beach, CA alt-rock outfit I Hate Kate. The band, like the latter two have built up their fanbase on Myspace.com, with over 17,000 friends/fans and caught the attention of New York label Glassnote Records, the home of Secondhand Serenade and budding star Justin Nozuka. The band’s first effort ‘Embrace the Curse’ will be re-released with a handful of new songs and ones from the original as their Glassnote debut on June 24. The sound is very catchy with a few lines of electronica, giving them a Metro Station-like feel at times.
This band is a can’t miss as alternative rock continues to evolve with multi-faceted acts like I Hate Kate.
