Best known for her stint on ABC's Wife Swap and her 'Joan Jett style approach' to song writing, front woman Tish Meeks and the group deliver yet another straight shot of their “Texas Party Punk meets Pop” brand of high energy music. Coming off the successful 2009 “American Breakdown” tour, the band went through major transitions, including relocation to San Antonio, TX. Tish & long time drummer Andrew Wood started writing new material for the next album, which was recorded over 3 different sessions by producer, Eric LaBrosse (Cherry Pit Studios) and incorporates performances by various former members of the band and other musicians. This combination of events helped fuse together a thought provoking, well written, emotionally charged dose of rock music. “Lethal Love Addiction” (Batteries not included) offers a full helping of rocking anthems, attitude, and a middle finger on behalf of all of those who have been screwed by life, love and heartbreak.
3 KISSES jumps from one high energy style to another with traces of just about every cool female-fronted rock band of the last 20 years. The band has been compared to an array of artists including the Breeders, Joan Jett, the Buzzcocks, Letters to Cleo, Wendy O. Williams, Blondie, the Ramones and everything in between. 3 KISSES’ live performance has been called ‘freakin’ explosive’ and lead singer/guitarist Tish Meeks has been referred to as ‘a ball of fire on stage.’ Martin Folkman, Publisher of the Musician’s Atlas writes, “3 KISSES is fronted by the kinetic Tish Meeks who no guitar, mic stand or stage can contain. [This band] packs more energy into a 3-minute song than all the WMD's combined!” Tish launched 3 KISSES in Austin, TX, in January 2004. Since then they have performed over 400 live shows for over 350,000 people. Lead guitarist, Maestro Aurora, bassist, Jeff Vandeventer, and drummer, Andrew Wood complete the recipe for 3 KISSES’ punkish ‘cuddle-angst’ with a positive, party vibe.
3 KISSES has been featured on the FOX 7 Morning Show in Austin, TX, WOAI-NBC in San Antonio, TX, KTRK-ABC in Houston, TX, FOX Morning Show in Houston, KLBJ 93.7FM in Austin, KPFT 90.1 in Houston, Indie-Music.com, Female Musician Magazine, One Way Magazine, Origivation Magazine, The Macon Telegraph, The Brenham Banner Press, The College Station Eagle, EDGE Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly and The Austin American Statesman.
