Hey it's Jai Yoko, Manager of Identity Krisis, the DMV's Own Black Beatles  and on their behalf, allow me to introduce you to
 
 Identity Krisis (IDK):
Inline image 5
Birthed from a brotherhood bond Identity Krisis (IDK) is truly a band of brothers. Originally named the Pretty Difficult Boys,  the band formed in 2007 after wanting to emulate the success in music that they found on the hit game Rockband. With the original line up being that of Nova Cain playing guitar and doing vocals, Solo Dolo on lead guitar, Quah Manigan on bass and Remy on drums. The new all black rockband was created and ready to rock. Shortly after forming the band added another neighborhood friend Cortez Mars who would take on the responsibility of songwriting and vocals. His hip hop roots added another dynamic to the groups persona and musical stylings. Almost immediately after adding Cortez Mars the band changed the name to Identity Krisis. The name was said to describe the band in the most perfect way possible. The songs they were creating fit no genre perfectly as if they did not what type of music they wanted to create. Also being a group of all black musicians making rock music though no unheard of was somewhat of a shock to the people listening. With influences like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gym Class Heroes, Coheed and Cambria, NERD, and Weezer. IDK is without a doubt a breathe of fresh air in music. 
 
IDK hopes to take their musical versatility worldwide to truly manifest  the "Black Beatles"  in everyone. Watch out for their upcoming work and get their old works if you haven't already gotten it. Peace, Love and IDK.  
 
Identity Krisis's long awaited EP, "Krismerica" is finally here. Listen, download and enjoy. https://soundcloud.com/identity-krisis/sets/krismerica
