Biography / Info
Spawned from the depths of Staten Island, New York, a place best known for the biggest garbage dump on the East Coast and a pit stop between the bright lights of the big city and the Jersey Shore, Arthurkill has risen to become one of New York City's best kept little secrets. Arthurkill consists of Ken Munson, Rob Petillo -drums, Mike Petillo -guitar, Steve Maranovich -guitar, Artie Maglia -bass. The chemistry of the band is the glue that holds them together, with Rob and Mike being brothers and first cousins to Ken Munson.
The lyrics are in your face, the guitars are huge, and the sound is monstrous. Mixed into all of this are melodies that just keep coming song after song. The band's main focus is to create something that is a perfect representation of where they are today in their lives, so it is important for Ken to write lyrics that are intense and meaningful.
The other thing that will set this band apart from the rest is their live show. Arthurkill can really deliver the goods on stage. Their objective every night is to peel the paint off the walls and then soothe your soul. Most of this stir is caused by front man Ken Munson, the consummate performer staying in constant motion, burning tons of energy on stage. "It is important to me that the crowd feels like they were just entertained -that means I am doing my job", says Kenny.
