LATCH KEY KIDS Anytime Anyplace 1996



Rocketing out of Houston, Texas, the time-tested Latch Key Kids are a band of unbridled punk rock energy.

Founded in 1993 and still led by singer Tim Guerinot and guitarist “Rhino” Neumann, Latch Key Kids have been powering through positive punk rock for the past two decades. Having been invited to share shows with NOFX, Bad Religion, Strung Out, and Jawbreaker, among many others, as well as a stint on the Warped Tour ’99, they’ve held their own in DIY rooms, basements, bars, clubs, concert halls, and amphitheaters alike. Their two full-length releases, “Anytime, Anyplace,” and “Innocence Gone,” both on Pinche Flojo Records, are both sold out and out of print, as are all of their 7” records, including “Time Out” on Skene! Records.

Don’t get the wrong idea by, “punk rock,” either – we’re not talking about some apathetic do-nothings with needles in their arms here. Latch Key Kids are hardworking and dependable and always bring the energy with songs of integrity (“Knight Song”), wherewithal (“March On”), motivation (“Sidelines”), and memories (“Back in the Day”), among others. From the opening pick-slide of “Knight Song” to the closing barrage of the instant classic, “Want to Be (Shine a Light),” a Latch Key Kids set is something for a returning fan to love and a new fan to discover. See you there.
