Judah Kim & The Assassination Record Release Party

Record Release Party For New Album Dark Circles Will Be Held May 19 At MilkBoy Philly

After forming in Philly in 2017, indie rockers Judah Kim & The Assassination are releasing what acclaimed singer-songwriter Judah Kim describes as an album that is “a sonic reflection of the struggle of keeping it all together in the 21st Century” on May 19 at MilkBoy Philly.

Citing influences including the bravado of Muse, the laidback flair of Rooney and the guitar work of the Strokes, Kim wrote all the songs on the new album with the “shuffle mentality” of contemporary listeners in mind.

Band members Judah Kim [Stonethrown] songwriting and vocals, Bob Cahill [ex-Downtown Harvest, Pocket Deal] on bass, Isaac Windle [The Strange Heat, Pocket Dial] on guitar, and Jon McNally [Agent Moosehead] on drums and percussion all attended local Philly suburban high school Plymouth Whitemarsh and are joined by Kevin Cox [solo project] on guitar, keyboards and background vocals. Staying close to their Philadelphia roots, the album was recorded and mixed at Kawari Sound in Wyncote with additional tracking at Kim’s project studio, Scarlet Oak Sound.

The title track “Dark Circles” has been featured on local radio station 104.5 FM and the album will be available wherever digital music is sold starting May 19.

To celebrate the release, the group has released their debut video for “Dark Circles” on their social media platforms, to view visit In another nod to the local music scene the band chose MilkBoy Philly to host the release party because as Kim says “It’s a great sounding room where the band can really connect with the audience, share all the tracks from Dark Circles, a few tracks from my previous album My Favorite Shuffle and a big bang ending!”

Physical copies of the new CD will be for sale at the show. The show starts at 8:30 PM (doors at 7:30 PM) and tickets are $10/$12 at the door. To purchase tickets, visit

The band is planning to hit the road this August to perform select dates in support of the album, details to follow. To learn more about Judah Kim & The Assassination, visit
