The KD Band is a band originally formed by Chill57181, Mario Arkay, Penquino, and LMGT. They were most popular on Shops Island and were very successful there, because all of the band's members had previously been in the public eye through Shops politics. However, they weren't nearly as popular elsewhere. They only released one album before deciding to end the band after the tragic events of Calada, Eh?, but made a surprise return in 2018.

History[edit]

The KD Band was formed out of boredom in the Summer of 2012 by Chill57181, Mario Arkay, Penquino, and LMGT, after the release of Penquino's single The Eggnog Starts Now!. In December 2012, they decided to go professional, and LMGT left the band to devote more time to other projects, and Bro joined the band in his place.

In early 2013, the band announced their first album, Let's Rock!. Shortly after, they began the Let's Rock Tour to showcase some of their new songs. Let's Rock! was released on May 26th, 2013, to critical acclaim on Shops Island.

However, a few months prior, Mario was teleported into another dimension and originally presumed deleted while on vacation in Calada. While trying to figure out how the band would go on, they eventually agreed it would be best if they ended the band.

In May 2018, Chill was bored and came up with an idea for a new KD Band album and decided to revive the band. Chill contacted the others, and Penquino agreed to rejoin. Bro was less optimistic and refused to rejoin the band, calling it a "failed experiment" and telling Chill to leave it in the past. Chill decided Bro was being "broring" and instead got his friend The Ed to join the band in his place, who had previously wrote the hit song "Without Memes I Will Die". As Mario was still legally considered dead by the Shopper government and living off the radar in Chill Island, he didn't rejoin.

With everything in place, Chill announced the surprise revival of The KD Band and their new album, OOOOkay We're Back, scheduled to release later that summer. Unlike Let's Rock!, the new album would only be released as a digital download, and the band would not go on tour because they were busy with other things in their lives.

Past[edit]

No. TitleWriter(s)Description Length
1. "The Frog"  Chill57181, The EdA song about Kermit, praising his heroics on the Club Penguin Weekee.  
2. "I Stepped on an Armo"  Chill57181A song from the point of view of a penguin who just stepped barefoot onto an Armo block and is trying not to yell and wake up his family; his efforts ultimately fail.  
3. "In Other News"  Chill57181A song mocking tabloids. Throughout the song, various claims are made, which grow increasingly bizarre as the song goes on. Some of the "stories" in the song include Lavender wearing bunny slippers to bed, puffles being alien spies, Herbert being Megg in disguise, and the entirety of Calada being secretly made out of cheese. 4:38
4. "Shameless Plug"  Chill57181, PenquinoA song that is apparently a product placement, advertising several fictional products.  
5. "Sounds"  PenquinoA song with no vocals or instruments. Instead, it is made entirely out of sounds from mundane objects, including shaking a bowl of Puffle-O's, mopping, playing with a paddle ball, a paint brush on a canvas, kicking a soccer ball, water pouring from a hose, and using a jackhammer. At the very end of the song, Chill can faintly be heard saying "Now this is trashposting!".  
6. "Without Memes I Will Die"  The EdBonus track 2:10

Reception[edit]

The KD Band enjoyed most of its success on Shops Island, thanks to all of its members being in the public eye through Shops politics. During its 2018 revival, popularity skyrocketed on Chill Island, which was mostly because of The Ed joining the band. Elsewhere in Antarctica however, they were much less popular.

Their first album, Let's Rock!, sold very well in Shops Island, and topped Shopper charts during the week of its release. Concert tickets for the Let's Rock Tour also sold well. In the rest of Antarctica it was largely ignored, and the little reception it did get dismissed it as generic, outdated, and nothing special.
