Band goes to school

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A trio of Mt Al­bert’s self-pro­fessed in­die rock trou­ble­mak­ers are head­ing back to the class­room.

The Neo-Kalash­nikovs, made up of sib­lings Volita, Gabriel and Moss Bi­o­letti, formed in 2007.

They are hop­ing to in­spire young peo­ple by per­form­ing at schools around the coun­try.

‘‘We really love the kids that lis­ten to our mu­sic and give us so much sup­port.

‘‘What bet­ter way is there for us to say thanks than to rock out with them at their schools,’’ Moss says.

In April, the band will per­form at schools across the coun­try, in­clud­ing Auck­land Girls Gram­mar, Ep­som Girls Gram­mar and West­ern Springs Col­lege.

Af­ter time spent record­ing in LA, the trio de­cided to fin­ish their de­but al­bum She’s On Heat in Pt Che­va­lier.

The al­bum is now avail­able free to down­load.

‘‘It’s about

the

mu­sic,

it’s in­stant, it’s in your face and it’s on your stereo,’’ Moss says.

They have had 1100 down­loads so far and, with plans to make their next three al­bums avail­able as free in­stant down­loads as well, hope to reach the 20,000 down­loads mark.
