The most recent single by Nashville hard rockers, Abby K, made it’s star-studded debut recently while on tour with Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper). “99ºC” shakes up the typical melodic rock sound brought to us by Abby K by bringing on a heavier sound matched with an even fiercer attitude. Abby K states that the song is “like a 4 minute long panic attack”. The band still holds true to their meaningful lyricism while packing a punch with a new sense of raw aggression not yet heard by Abby K fans, making “99ºC” a brand new chapter for the group.
Leading up to their debut album, Abby K has launched a Kickstarter to help gain funding for the record. With worthwhile rewards for donations ranging from $5 to $1,000, there is an option for any music fan to help get these young and hungry rockers into the studio. If their funding goal is met by the end of March, Abby K will head into the recording studio in June and listeners can expect a full length record in October. The group has over 60 songs in their arsenal and are eager to make a dent in getting them recorded and onto your playlists. To support this talented trio, please consider selecting a reward on their Kickstarter.
“Water boils at 100°C. “99°C” is about being on the verge of your breaking point and reaching the degree at which you boil over. I wrote “99°C” in the heat of the pandemic. Like most people, my mental health declined quite a bit during quarantine, and writing “99°C” was very therapeutic for me. Now that it’s released and so many people are relating to it, it makes me feel like I’m not alone!” – Abby K
