Kemo For Emo is a pop-punk band that was formed in 2003, in Houston, TX. Larry Sanders (vocals/rhythm guitar) and Brian Gibbs (bass/vocals) formed a musical bond in their love for catchy, rhythmic, and energetic tunes. After honing their skills by playing local mainstay venues such as Fitzgerald's and Numbers and all across their home state, they further exercised their song writing skills. In 2004, they felt the need to expand dynamically by adding guitarist, Kelvin Baron. Creative differences yielded the welcomed replacement of their previous drummer with Matthew Martinez, who had his own impressive musical background.
Together, they refined their repertoire through several shows throughout the southern US. Early in the Summer of 2005, they ventured to nationally renowned Sugar Hill Studios to record the culmination of their efforts, I'd Rather Have A Broken Neck... which was released in July 2005.
November 2005 brought the departure of Kelvin, due to reasons beyond anyones control, along with his replacement, Jake Rawls. With the musical climate left in a waning state, Kemo For Emo will take the musical world by storm with their humorous and lighthearted, yet aggressive and emotional sound.
In 2005, they were runner-up for "Best Pop Punk Band of the Year" by the Houston Press, a newspaper in their hometown.
In summer 2006 the band plans on touring the United States and recording their first full length LP
