KILL HOLIDAY was formed in 1994 by
Steven Andrew Miller (UNBROKEN), Robert
Moran (UNBROKEN), Barry Kellman (AMENITY/
HOUSE OF SUFFERING) and Oscar Paz
(STATEMENT, IMPEL). Influenced by bands
such as QUICKSAND and JAWBREAKER,
KILL HOLIDAY set out to create music that
was still heavy but emotionally charged at
the same time. A four-song EP on New Age
Records titled Monitor Dependency was
soon released. This lineup played a handful
of shows until Robert left the band and was
replaced by June Cate (IMPEL, I WISH I).
Three more songs were released by Indecision
Records on a split 7” with DEMPSEY
(ex-UNDERTOW) and a song featured on
the Guilty By Association compilation.
Todd Beattie (UNBROKEN) joined on bass
and newcomer Chris Perreira came in on
guitar. Soon a two-song single titled Meant
To Let You Down was released on Simba,
followed by the band’s first European tour.
