Mikita Talks of Releases and the Future Plans Ahead!


Two piece punk act MIKITA have an album, EP, and single out and about, with so much else in-store! The band goes into talks about everything below!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The two of us (Ben & Ben) have been playing as Mikita for just about 3 years now, although we had been in a different short lived and very uninspired project. After our other 2 members left from that project we pretty much just said  “Fuck it 2 pieces are trendy lets make something weird”.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Depending on what day you ask you’ll get a different answer but as of now, Mikita is a combination of the first letter of the first word spoken by each of the actors that portrayed the main cast of Reservoir Dogs when they were children.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We’re from Ocean County, NJ and if you haven't taken a look at the DIY scene in our state you’re seriously missing out, there isn’t a weekend that you won't find original music happening we are incredibly grateful to have the privilege to be members of this community. While I could write you a whole novel on bands you should be listening to from Jersey here's a few: Dumpweed, Fat Chance, America Part 2, Baron Praxis, Kissies, P.R.O.G.R.A.M, Fang Gang, and Entierralos NJDIY OR DIE!

4. How would you describe your style?

Angry, abrasive, noisy and cathartic as hell.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

In the spring of 2018 we put out our debut EP “Locusts Are People” recorded the whole thing with one vocal mic in Ben’s house with no production knowledge it’s got 5 high energy punk jawns on it, more recently this past July we put out our first full length “DIE YUNG” we went to a good friend of ours studio and put some serious work into crafting an abrasive significantly heavier album that hopefully can make you feel anxious.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We’re currently in the writing process of our next release which is projected to come out in the 2nd quarter of 2020.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We have been extensively playing in NJ and PA for now trying to build as strong a base in our hame state as we can, we have plans for an east coast tour in the summer of 2020 although no dates released just yet.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Be louder, angrier, and give ourselves more head trauma during shows than we already are.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
