After years touring the world as a solo artist, Kid Beyond is coming with the fire for 2019 — with his new band, Kid Beyond and the Holy Wolves.
A scorching mix of heavy, bluesy indie rock and future-bass electro, Kid B’s new sound is like White Stripes meets James Blake. Zeppelin meets Ableton. Howlin’ Wolf meets the womp and the drop.
It’s soulful, visceral, heart-warrior music for turbulent times — powered by Kid B’s virtuosic pipes, his deep roots as a Buddhist teacher + activist, and his band of electro-funk shamans: brothers Kevin and Geoff McCann (Elephantine) and Hassan Hurd (The Coup).
Kid Beyond made his bones as a groundbreaking, live-looping vocal wizard — multitracking his singing and beatboxing to create his own live backing tracks — riveting hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world.
J.J. Abrams sought him out for the Mission: Impossible theme song.
VH1 had him on to jam with Ted Nugent + Sebastian Bach’s Supergroup.
Guitar Hero and Rock Band brought him in to sing like the rock gods.
And now he’s staking out some rock-god territory of his own.

I’m LOSING YOU
An epic, cinematic journey in two acts. Spooky, harrowing electro-blues explodes into a tsunami of psychedelic glitch-rock.
An infectious, down-home garage-rock stomp manifesto on gun violence and violence against people of color.
