Kiss it Goodbye

Kiss it Goodbye was a hardcore band from Seattle, Washington, USA that existed from 1997 - 1998.
After leaving the New Jersey band Deadguy, vocalist Tim Singer and guitarist Keith Huckins moved on to form Kiss it Goodbye with bassist Thom Rusnack and drummer Andrew Gormley. Huckins, Rusnack and Gormley were already familiar musically as they had all previously performed together in the New Jersey band Rorschach.-[wiki]
Rorschach is back in action (and have an NYC show coming up), and now after calling it quits in 1998, Kiss It Goodbye is too. The band has scheduled a string of West Coast dates that include an appearance at the Revelation anniversary show. They're all listed below. No word on any East Coast dates so far, but we'll keep you up to date.

Still no word on a Deadguy reunion either, but a girl can dream, can't she?

UPDATE: A former member of the band has stated that both Keith Huckins and Andrew Gormley (both also of Rorschach) are NOT part of the KiG 2012 lineup. Bummer.

seriously deadguy was one of the best bands ever. their inevitable reunion is going to cash in pretty hard whenever it happens. bigger reunion than refused, I'd say.

deadguy [not the fake version] and kiss it goodbye were both incredible bands.

Would love to see Dave Crayola, Crispy, Pops and Swinger do it again. That was rock magix.

I'm not part of these shows. Please remove my pic. Thanks.

A Ripping Corpse reunion would be the best thing ever.

Damn... Corrected by the man himself.
Without Keith - this isnt exactly a reunion.

Deadguy was better but this is still awesome.

Rohrschach much better than kiss it goodbye or deadguy

A band that existed for less than 2 years doing a reunion without two original members? Just start a new band!

Comparing Deadguy to kiss it goodbye is just stupid.

To all the ones chiming in with their thoughts on preferring Deadguy to KIG ...

first of all, KIG is just so much deeper and stronger on a songwriting level than Deadguy ever was at any given point ... the work of the rhythm section alone is so much better on any conceivable level than the very average counterpart in Deadguy ... Keith Huckins achieved a level of combined power, creativity and intensity alone than 2 guitars [including him] rarely approached in Deadguy ... I could go on and on in minute detail but suffice it to say imo KIG was the absolute best hardcore band of the 90's [and for my taste, the best hardcore band ever!!!]...

Lastly and sadly, a "reunion" without Keith Huckins and Andrew Gormley feels like a major sham.

It ain't KIG without Keith. Def not one without Keith and Gormsley.

Fuck Tim Singer on so many levels, and not in a sexual way. One of the biggest dicks of the late 80s straightedge scene. Total/typical edgebreaker-and-hardcore hater-by 1992 douchenozzle. What's he doing back in hardcore / playing to hardcore kids/people?

No Escape (his first band) was good though. 'Last time he was cool save the end.

I hate to say it but I have to agree with 9:57 and "right on" to 1:48. There are more announcements about reunions and reformations than ones about new bands including ones with people in bands from back in the day. Why are people sooo afraid to do something new as Rorschach, No Escape, Deadguy, and Kiss It Goodbye were all new once?

i'm a rare one that says KIG was better the deadguy, though loved DG too.

8:18 is a bedwetter

Bedwetter? First the number 6 is two keys to the left of 8, or did you post from whatever device you're gonna blow $10G on between monthly service and device upgrades after a decade of having it be replacement for your brain?

Second wishful thinking on your part that I'm a bedwetter you pervert.
