The band is currently working on their debut album to be produced by one of the members , Gittx of Rhyme-x Productions, to be released later this year.
Being together for over five years the band has acquired music versatility and chemistry, hence the name Threat Band Kenya, which means breaking the boundaries of music creating an exciting, long lasting experience memorable to a performance.
They held a concert dubbed ‘The Peace Regime’ on the 22nd of Feb 2013 to showcase their original sounds and i must say their album will be worth waiting for if the music performed that night was anything to go by.
You can find some of the pics from the concert here.
Have a great week and remember to promote PEACE.
