1. Hello The Killing Floor! Please can you introduce your band and its members?
Hailing from both sides of the Atlantic, The Killing Floor consists of brothers Mark & Oliver Alberici from London, and Marco Argiro & Peter Landi of NYC.
2. Lets’s talk about BandApp, where did you hear about BandApp and how did you find the build?
Our management discovered BandApp when submitting us for Liverpool Sound City. We were really excited about having a BandApp for The Killing Floor, and all contributed to help build the app, which we found to be very easy and user-friendly.
3. Your BandApp is one of our most successful ones in terms of downloads and usage, what are you guys doing to get it out to your fans?
We have let our fans know about our BandApp through our social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Everyone has been really excited about it!
4. What have you got as a band coming up? Anything you want to tell us about?
We are just finishing up a big tour throughout the US, Canada and the UK surrounding the release of our new EP “Survival of the Fittest”. We have also been in the studio recording songs for our next full-length album, so look out for a new album and more touring in 2013.
5. How will your BandApp fit into these plans?
We will definitely use our BandApp to keep our fans up-to-date on all of our show info, new music, and any other news.
6. What advice would you give to bands starting out?
Work hard. Keep at it. Don’t get discouraged. Have fun. Learn from others. And just keep making the music that you love.
7. What other bands are you listening to at the moment, anything caught your ear?
Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, AC/DC, Father John Misty, Jimi, and early ZZ Top
8. Have you got any advice to bands just about to build a BandApp?
Take the time to create a BandApp because it’s a great tool to share with fans, and another way to reach your fans and keep them up-to-date on show info, new music, new videos, and that sort of thing. Everyone is always on their phones, so why not give them an easy way to follow you and listen to your music.
9. Anything else you want to tell BandApp World about The Killing Floor?
Let’s see…after recording our debut self-titled album in 2011, The Killing Floor made a music video in Brooklyn with legendary director Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys, St. Elmo’s Fire, Flatliners, A Time to Kill, Phantom of the Opera) for our song “Star Baby”.

In September 2012, we self-released our new EP “Survival of the Fittest” and have been touring throughout the US, Canada and the UK surrounding its release.
10. And finally, which animal is the only creature that has legs but can’t walk on them?!
A Hummingbird?! Or blokes from Manchester when they get legless after a night on the piss in Crawley!
Congratulations, you’re the first ever band to get the ‘random general knowledge (thrown in for good measure)’ question right, it’s indeed the hummingbird! BandApp salutes you…
