About

First things first, click that big ole' play button up there, and if you are interested in what you see, or intrigued by Austin's obscenely red hair, please, continue.

Do you enjoy different?

    Imagine this. You're forced to eat the same thing all day, every day, for the rest of your life. Sure, everybody adores bacon pizza with extra cheese, but isn't it funny how things get old? Sounds like eating could become a chore, doesn't it? If you're like us, you've noticed the uniformity of our generation's music, and isn't it time for a change?  Hooked on Kronix is different. In fact, we're unlike anything you've ever heard, in a good way, of course.

What makes you losers so special?

     Alright, I'll agree, the analogies may have been just a LITTLE extreme, but you get the picture, you're smart, huh? Well, in a nutshell, there's only one way to define the unique concept that's illustrated by the six members of Hooked on Kronix. Sometimes in life, as people are growing up, they tend to feel as though maybe they don't really belong anywhere particular in society, simply because they're not like everyone else, they're just an unexplainable "different". From an eccentric taste in music to an idiosyncratic, poetic view on life, these defining unique traits should not be frowned upon. Instead, they should be viewed as a blessing. When such diverse individuals band together, something beautiful happens. And no, not "grandma's fine china beautiful". It's "Carmen Electra" beautiful. When you combine such varying personality, musical taste, and outlooks on life, only then can you truly experience such an extraordinary musical concept. Thus is Hooked on Kronix.

What genre is your music?

     It's really hard to pinpoint our style of music. The best way to describe it is as a no song sounds the same dynamic style of hip hop. From the nostalgic, reminiscent, old-school beats to new age ambience, with the occasional necessary dash of satire, Hooked on Kronix has it all. Our artists come from such contrasting musical backgrounds, including punk, traditional rock, hip hop, rap, and electronica. We've utilized the best from each genre to create such an astounding musical concept. 

What is your goal, and why should I fund you?

     Consisting of aspiring artists, music production students, and even poetic heartthrobs, our goal as a musical collaboration is simply to produce our first ever 5-track EP and get our name out there.

      Let's be honest, if you've read this far, odds are we've caught your interest, right? It's hard to pay for college and all the wonderful expenses of an average person struggling to make ends meet while attempting to keep their car from blowing up! We've all been there. Throw in the costs of music production, and boy oh boy you've got a hearty serving of increasing debt! ANY donations are greatly appreciated! Every dollar counts. With a background of graphics design, our artists will BE SURE to provide you with rewards of the utmost quality. Perfectionists at heart, our final product will not go unnoticed. That is a fact. 

What are you REALLY spending the money on?

     $1000 may seem like a bit much for 5 tracks, but when you tally up the costs of studio time, mastering, apparel production, CD production, and distribution, $1000 is actually calling it quite close. Our hobby is music, and we love our fans. Every last penny will be spent on our project. We're all passionate artists looking to provide an outlet for our creativity. If we surpass our goal, we'll only strive to provide more for our backers, because what are we without our fans? Nothing. 

So let's hear it!

       While the EP is still being recorded, we've decided to give you a sneak preview and provide you with the instrumentals from several songs from the EP, as well as an original song by "Is Mayonnaise an Instrument?", a side project created by a portion of the members of Hooked on Kronix.

Thank you for visiting our Kickstarter!

A huge thank you to everyone who's visited this page and an even bigger thank you to those who believe in us and have backed us, again, our fans mean the world to us and we cannot do this without you! Be sure to stay updated, and hope to hear from us soon!

Risks and challenges

Obviously, we could potentially face some challenges during the production process. From scheduling studio time around school and work to funding the production of our EP, financial and scheduling problems could arise. But hey, where there's a will, there's a way, right? We're extremely confident that we WILL make this happen, and with loyal fans like you, the sky is the limit, but we're gonna shoot for the stars!
