NOW: How was Who Killed Bruce Lee born?

 

WHO Killed Bruce Lee: It started up as a tight friendship. We used to know each other years ago, and were playing in several bands separately or together in different outfits. The click happened naturally and now we're having the time of our lives as WKBL.

NOW: Tell us about your music: do you write and perform original songs? Who does the writing?

In December 2012 we released our first 5-song EP at the Warehouse in Qarantina. It was a success with over 700 people attending and we had a blast! Since then, we're recording two new singles to be released soon in preparation for our upcoming album. Also we're working on a couple of videos. Stay tuned on our Facebook page and keep up!
