Kirby Krackle Gets Hooked On 'Guardians of the Galaxy'
For nearly seven years, Kirby Krackle have been proving themselves as one of the preeminent nerd rock bands, with songs covering topics from the Great Lake Avengers to Game of Thrones’ Night's Watch. Their high energy, passionate style has gained them a worldwide fanbase and has now led to a partnership with Disney and Marvel to produce new, original songs for Star-Lord’s mixtape in the animated Guardians of the Galaxy series. The first of these songs, Gotta Get Back, debuted this past Sunday as part of an episode that sets the Guardians and their resident destroyer Drax against The Destroyer of Asgard! ComicsAlliance spoke to Kyle Stevens of Kirby Krackle about writing songs inspired by Peter Quill’s Awesome Mix, and what songs would be on the rest of the Guardians’ mixtapes.
