Formed around 2006, the band, then called Molten Lava, started as an outlet for members of several established local bands to showcase the prowess as performers and their skill as musicians.
The reception in their joint hometowns of Fayetteville and Little Rock Arkansas was warm as fans of their former bands flocked to see the brand new conglomerate cover new wave 80’s hits with stage rattling energy.
It wasn’t long that the members’ backgrounds in songwriting and recording would come calling, begging for an outlet in the band’s ever growing fan base and, soon, the band would emerge again, reinvented and renamed Boom Kinetic to release their first EP featuring all original music taking the stage with white-suited front men sporting sunglasses and working the crowds into a frenzy.
One EP wouldn’t satiate the band’s need to create and another EP was release featuring a more somber music, culminating in what might become the group’s signature sound. A new birth for the band is almost traceable right down to a song called “Math and Science”. A song both epic and intimate, it would serve as harbinger of the band’s new identity.
Boom Kinetic would shuffle off the idea of a cover band and, bringing their resounding success in awing crowds and setting records in their own states biggest venues, be reborn, yet again, as a powerhouse of original music with the 2010 release of their first full-length album, “Part Gray/Part Bright Light”.
The two part album would serve as a symbol of Boom Kinetic’s dichotomy as a band and, at the same time, solidify their position as a group of accomplished songwriters.
As the band continues to work on new music, they have grown the areas the reach performing in Memphis, Kansas City, St. Louis, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Dallas, New Orleans and many places in between bringing their high-energy alternative pop music to more and more people every week.
