Originally forming in 1977, Kix would take the slow road to mainstream success as they built up a small but fervent following on the metal and glam rock scene around their native Hagerstown, Maryland. They released several independent albums in the years leading up to their commercial breakout, fine tuning their musical discography and honing their live skills as they looked for the perfect blend of glam, metal, and hard rock that would allow them the mainstream success they knew they deserved. That day would come in 1988, the band's biggest hit to date that would see them dominate airwaves and radio charts for years to come, paving the way for a second mega success album in 1991 as well as a jaw dropping live album in 1992.
The band's momentum would slow down in 1995, and they parted ways with Atlantic Records as various band members left to start up their own side projects. Kix members would be responsible for several influential late 90s acts such as Funny Money, Jeremy and the Suicides, and Rhino Bucket, with the band eventually deciding they couldn't be apart any longer as they announced a legendary reunion event in 2003. The reunion would be a huge success and, despite some lineup changes, would bring Kix fever back to a fever pitch that has showed no signs of slowing since as they tour on the strength of their latest 2014 release Rock Your Face Off.
The band's commercial breakthrough would come in 1988, with the LP Blow My Fuse lighting up the music world as it climbed to #46 on the US Billboard 200. Released on Atlantic Records, the album featured Tom Werman, Duane Baron, and John purdell in the studio, with the final product receiving a platinum certification for sales and receiving a coveted, near perfect 4.5 out of 5 score from the discerning critics at AllMusic. The album spawned a jaw dropping four hit singles, including "Get It While It's Hot", "Cold Blood", "Blow My Fuse", and the #11 charting "Don't Close Your Eyes".
The band's highly anticipated follow up album, 1991's How Wire, would be another commercial success that hit #64 on the US Billboard 200 and sold over two hundred thousand copies. The album received nods across the board from critics, including 4 out of 5 stars from AllMusic and a B- from Entertainment Weekly, with hits "Hot Wire", "Same Jane", "Tear Down the Walls", and "Girl Money" becoming instant glam metal classics.
The band has gone through various lineup changes over its long history. The current lineup consists of Steve Whiteman, Jimmy Chalfant, Brian Forsythe, Ronnie Younkins, and Mark Schenker,with Forsythe and Younkins being the only remaining founding members.
The band has not stopped recording and releasing since their reunion, with two albums being released since 2003, including a studio record and a live DVD.
