(BROOKLYN, NY) -- Kill The Alarm returns to Brooklyn's own Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday July 28th. KTA is a band with deep, dark rock-and-roll roots, and anyone who takes a close look at producer, vocalist, and guitarist Garen Gueyikian will notice one recurring theme in his presentation. He controls it all, from the initial stages of composition right down to the guys who play in the studio and on the stage. His sound is precise and bold, floating somewhere between the influential, fire-hot choruses of Fuel and pop-chopped sensibilities of Kings of Leon. 

Their latest album, Against the Grain, is an intelligent EP that ranges from fast- paced rock punk elation to black, mid-tempo lost-love ballads, and it's a winner.

KTA is continuing to cause quite a stir in the big apple. After selling out shows at Bowery Ballroom and Irving Plaza, the band is poised to be the next contender to break out of the area. Hailed as "the only band that's really shaking up NYC's rock scene," by John Pfeiffer from The Aquarian Weekly, Kill The Alarm is drawing all the right attention with their latest cd, Against The Grain.

Known for his deep, soulful voice, and thought-provoking lyrics, Garen's sound can be best described as "intense and real." If you love Linkin Park, Paramore, or early Goo Goo Dolls then you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of Against the Grain, and witness an interesting pop-rock contender that still has the right formula to take them into the next decade and beyond. 

KTA has been featured at the top of Purevolume, YouTube, The Aquarian Weekly, and Alternative Addiction. Their music has been a hit with music gamers on Rock Band, Rhythm Racer, and online music game JamLegend, who recently named Kill the Alarm their "Top Artist of All Time" with over 2 million plays. Their music can be heard on numerous TV shows like CBS's "Amazing Race", E! Network's "Keeping up with the Kardashians", MTV's Real World, as well as the latest ESPN promos.

Come see Kill The Alarm live at Urban Noise: Summerfest 3.0 located at Brooklyn Bowl. Special guests include Atomic Tom, Man On Earth, Reckless Sons and Night Fevers. DJ set afterwards by ?uestlove of The Roots! Free Admission if you get there before 7:00 pm!  Brooklyn Bowl is located on 61 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
