Vocalist Michael Crafter (also of Carpathian), guitarists Jona Weinhofen and Kevon Cameron, bassist Sean Kennedy, and drummer JJ formed the ingeniously named I Killed the Prom Queen in Adelaide, Australia, in 2003. Their Choose to Live or Die EP followed shortly afterward, and 2004 saw the release of their debut long-player, When Goodbye Means Forever, which featured an emotive and melodic amalgam of hardcore and heavy metal made popular by American bands such as Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall. Their follow-up, Music for the Recently Deceased, hit stores at home in July 2006, and after the guys inked a deal with Metal Blade Records, the label issued the record in North America that November. Early the next year, Crafter jumped ship to become the new vocalist for Boston-based Bury Your Dead, as the band also lost Weinhofen to California's Bleeding Through. Unable to find suitable replacements, I Killed the Prom Queen called it quits in 2007 following a final tour of Australia. ~ Eduardo RivadaviaPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
