Alaskan grown, energetic front woman Tish Meeks and her hard-hitting band 3 Kisses have performed in front of more than a thousand live audiences with crowds of up to 35,000 people, wrenching out their crisp, thought provoking, and well-written pop-punk/hard rock style of music. Strong, gritty, with a tone that is tailor-made for the rock industry, 3 Kisses is the next big thing.
3 Kisses is coming up on their 5th studio album release in Alaska, “Read ‘Em & Weep” – a visionary, savage, voyage that delivers 11 of the hardest rocking tunes from the band to date. Drew Owens shreds with impeccable guitar and bass skills, both of which he wrote and tracked for the album. Dale Payne’s hard hitting drum lines deliver a smack to the face as he provides the album’s precision point rhythm. Powerful front woman, Tish Meeks, delivers the bands intelligent lyrics and tantalizing melodies that have become her signature trademark.
Coming off the successful 2016 release of “Angels Bleed Black” the party punk anthem, “Lovesick Ending” is a standard for any 3 Kisses show and possesses the hooky, sing-a-long qualities that the band is known for. Chart topper? Probably, evidenced by the energy of the crowd in the video for this track, “Lovesick Ending” is sure to be worthy of any musical charts. Reminding you that 3 Kisses band members have hard rock roots, “Shot Down 1000 Chances” is a pure hard rock explosion that will certainly get your blood pumping, fists pumping, and legs jumping. Speaking of backgrounds, Owens’ metal background shines in many of these tunes and the collaboration with Meeks magically ignites the diversity of the two writers, creating a perfect union. There is nothing better than a band that surprises you at every turn with a new batch of tunes, shocking your ear holes with how much better they are than the last.
And shock you, they will, with the release of “Read ‘Em & Weep” which has been named by Metal Nexus as one of the most anticipated releases of 2017. Metal Nexus was given the exclusive rights to drop the album’s single “Dead Man’s Hand” which is a heavy, driving, tune with a level of intensity featuring surprise vocal’s from lead guitarist, Owens.
This band is setting out on an ambitious journey this year that begins with opening for Billboard chart topper, Beasto Blanco, in Anchorage, AK, followed by a slew of Texas performances in March including multiple showcases during SXSW and shows in surrounding cities, including Houston and San Antonio. Finally, 3 Kisses heads to the East Coast in May 2017 for a 36 date tour of the East Coast, South, and Midwest in support of “Read ‘Em & Weep.” 3 Kisses is one act you simply don’t want to miss.

"This band is a serious player in Alaska’s musical landscape. Hard hitting and fast, like a Punk band should be; catchy, shred guitar riffs like any good, 80’s style Rock band; complex, well developed song writing of modern Alternative Rock bands; impassioned and thoughtful lyrics with just enough sarcastic angst to keep things interesting without ruining 3 Kisses, over-the-top 'fun factor'." - Metal Nexus
