Kill The Ideal


Kill The Ideal are a 3-piece alternative rock band consisting of Ash Wilson on Guitar and Vocals, Luke Farmer on Bass and Jordan Bell on Drums.

The band released their debut EP ‘Heritage’ in March 2015 which showcased two singles ‘Higher’ and ‘Heritage’. Off the back of this EP KTI started to stamp their footprint on the UK rock scene by gaining national press from the likes of Kerrang!, Hit The Floor Magazine, BBC Introducing, Punktastic and Total Uprawr.

The band also hit the road hard by playing shows with the like of Lonely The Brave, Arcane Roots, The Xcerts, Black Peaks, Holding Absence, Decade, Our Last Night and many more.

After the Heritage EP and a lineup change reducing from 4 to 3 people, the band grafted for 2 years of solid writing and recording and taking inspiration from their day to day lives .In 2016 Kill The Ideal headed to Watford to the home of Lower Than Atlantis’ personal studio to work alongside their guitarist, producer and engineer Ben Sansom on a brand new record. In January 2017 they premiered a new single called ‘Know Your Name’ on the Kerrang radio ‘Fresh Blood’ show where Alex Baker stated “If this is a sign to come from Kill The Ideal then we’re all in for a treat”.

With the release turning plenty of heads the band decided to hold a ‘Secret Venue Gig’ in their hometown of Boston, Lincolnshire. Tickets sold out in 2 weeks from being announced and the event saw KTI pack out an old theatre with a large amount of excited fans.

After following with Know Your Name as a single release, the band was asked to play The Living Daylights’ final show which also resulted in a sellout audience.

From the same EP come’s ‘Dangerous’.

The band recently took part in Soccer Six Fest on Sunday 17th September alongside The Darkness and Mallory Knox.

Moving forward in 2018 Kill The Ideal are hitting the road hard and will be touring with the likes of Echoic and Of Allies and also have numerous other shows lined up. One of these being an appearance at Pile Up Festival alongside Teenage Bottlerocket, Palm Reader and Silent Screams.

Let’s see what Kill The Ideal have to say about Vocalzone!

“Vocalzone are really a lifesaver! With a heavy touring schedule, it can be really hard to keep fit and healthy and It’s crucial that our voices are on form every single night. Vocalzone help take care of this and allows us to perform at our very best.”
