meet the martians

If you ever wondered what a sonic baby between Radiohead and Red Hot Chili Peppers with a horn section would sound like, then look no further!

The King of Mars (TKOM) formed in 2015 as a traditional four-piece rock band and has since evolved into a larger group with synths, auxiliary percussion, and a horn section. Their sound shakes the foundation of traditional rock music by encompassing Jazz, Funk, and Soul musicality alongside insightful lyricism.

TKOM consistently performs at many popular Chicago venues. In 2017, they ventured off and successfully completed their first tour where TKOM gained fans along the East Coast and throughout the South and Midwest. In the summer of 2018, they released two new singles, "For a Ride" and "Tigress," followed by their new EP, "Bleach and Aspirin” in the fall.
