Hear Jaxon’s Local Shots Artist of the Month on air every Wednesday at 6:30pm! Here’s how to stream live.
The Philly punk scene is a powerful thing. It should come as no surprise that this bastion of hard hitting punk rock would be a lodestone for some of the best metal punk talent in the world.
Such was the case for vocalist/guitarist Phillipa Tank of California Motorhead tribute band Motorbabe, and now frontwoman of the hard hitting punk thrash band, Roadkiller. After an initial burst of shows, Roadkiller quickly recorded their self-titled debut EP, a record fated to make your ears bleed in all the right ways. Created with the goal of fusing punk, hard rock and crossover thrash whilst still remaining uniquely Roadkiller, Phillipa is on a mission to write songs to get your blood pumping.
2022 has seen the release of Roadkiller’s first full length record Pick of the Litter, featuring stacked guest spots of iconic drummers across the heavy music spectrum. Staying true to the hard rock/punk/thrash Roadkiller hybrid, the amalgamation of talents of Tommy Akerholdt (Turbonegro), Dave Witte (Municipal Waste), Jess Margera (CKY), Donald Tardy (Obituary), and Adrian Aguilar has produced a record that must be heard to be believed.
