TKO released their Debut EP “Hats Off? in June 2005. The launch night in Whelans sold out and Crawdaddy will be their first Headline gig since. Over June and July the band were doing Support gigs and Radio/Newspaper promotions.

TKO was formed in May 2004. Initially the band entered into an intense rehearsal period to perfect the bands sound and style. Within two months the band were playing venues such as Eamonn Dorans, Sugar Club and The Hub. These early gigs were well received and enabled the band to develop their energetic and entertaining live show. They continued to gig and write new material, moving on to larger venues such as Temple Bar Music Centre, Crawdaddy, The Village, Whelans and even venturing North to Auntie Annies.

In March, TKO reached the finals of the Brave New Stage competition. They were amongst the twenty bands chosen out of seven hundred entrants. The band hit the studio in April to record their debut EP, “Hats Off?. One of Mic’s songs, “The One? was voted into the Top 100 songs by Hot Press in 2002, so the band knew they had the ability to produce quality work. The “Hats Off? EP was launched in Whelans on Friday 13th May. The venue was packed to capacity and the atmosphere was electric.

The EP was released in record stores in June, and a mini tour is planned for September.
