Kill Hannah is an alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois, currently signed to Atlantic Records.
Kill Hannah was formed by singer-songwriter Mat Devine in 1994. Between 1996 and 2003, Kill Hannah self-released eight LPs, singles and EPs independently -- All of which quickly sold out of multiple pressings.
The ex-girlfriend of lead singer, Mat Devine, is the band's namesake. The two met at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois, during Mat's single semester there. According to Devine, "it was a really bizarre, brief relationship." At the time, Mat was singing and playing guitar in a band called "In a Jar UK". After the fallout with Hannah, Mat printed up stickers to place on "In a Jar UK" 7" records bearing the name "Kill Hannah". Several hundred un-stickered versions are known to exist, with approximately 20 bearing the Kill Hannah sticker.
Kill Hannah recorded their Atlantic Records debut For Never & Ever in Los Angeles in the winter of 2003 with producer Sean Beavan (No Doubt, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails) and mixer Tim Palmer (U2, The Cure, Tears for Fears, HIM). The album was mostly re-recorded versions of back-catalog songs and numbers that had been performed live for about a year prior. The band shot video for the song "Unwanted" but decided not to release it until 2006 as an Internet-only clip.
Through much of 2003 through 2007, Kill Hannah toured separately with Chevelle, HIM, Papa Roach and The Sounds, while also opening for Evanescence, Jane's Addiction, Everclear, Eve 6, The All-American Rejects, Fuel, P.O.D., The Distillers, Story of the Year, Three Days Grace, Alien Ant Farm, The Buzzcocks, Andrew W.K., Trapt, 30 Seconds to Mars, MorissonPoe, Mindless Self Indulgence, Flyleaf, as well as six headlining tours. Kill Hannah is believed to have played more shows at Chicago's famed Metro venue than any other single band, and they play a yearly Christmas show in there titled "New Heart For X-Mas." Currently they are touring with Velvet Revolver and Alice in Chains.
The single "Kennedy" debuted at #2 on modern rock radio, was performed on "Last Call with Carson Daly", and featured on such hit television shows as Jack & Bobby, One Tree Hill, and North Shore.
Kill Hannah signed with Atlantic Records in late 2002, while being managed by Steve Hutton, Kid Rock's former manager. Kill Hannah has since parted company with Hutton.
The band released their second album, "Until There's Nothing Left of Us" for Atlantic Records, on August 1st 2006.
On the advertisement for the show Stargate-Atlantis and Stargate-SG1, the song Believer is used for the two show's previews on the Sci-Fi channel.
