PK Releases New EP, “Archives & Rarities,” and Interviews with Fuse

By on December 13, 2012

High-energy, scrappy indie-pop quintet, PK, has released a new EP, “Archives & Rarities,” featuring remixed, live and acoustic versions of fan-favorite tracks. Purchase the EP on iTunes here: PK was just chosen by MTV Buzzworthy as one of 2012’s most “criminally overlooked artists.” Check it out here:


PK recently premiered a new music video for their new song “Chase The Sky” today on FUSE. The live performance video, filmed at a sold out show at PK’s hometown venue in San Luis Obispo, CA, captures the band’s raw, energetic live set as lead singer, Hawley, flings himself into the crowd without missing a beat. Watch the video here,


Hailing from San Luis Obispo, California, PK is made up of Travis Hawley (Vocals), Matt DePauw (Guitar), Mikel Van Kranenburg (Bass), Nick Fotinakes (Guitar) and Rico Rodriguez (Drums).  While the members initially met in high school, vocalist Hawley was born in the United Arab Emirates and lived in England for five years before moving to the U.S.  His brief stint in the UK deeply affected his vocal style and he has often been compared with emotive British artists such as Robert Smith, Bono, and Danny Elfman.

PK has been making waves in the industry since their 2010 debut release, Into The Roaring, scored the San Luis Obispo New Times’ Album of The Year award, a feature in Rolling Stone, and on the stage opening for bands such as Aerosmith, Youngblood Hawke, Shiny Toy Guns, Twin Atlantic and Angels and Airwaves. PK continued to impress with their sophomore project, The Lost Boy Sessions (recorded at the famed Red Bull Studio in Los Angeles),  released in May 2012, receiving accolades from the likes of The Huffington Post, RCRDLBL, Baeble Music and MTV.
