Profile Rattlesnake Kiss was literally born in a shack on a farm in the south Birmingham countryside in the early part of 1989 – by June of that year the band played its first gig at the legendary JBs club in Dudley. Within a short space of time the band signed a management deal and continued on an extensive gigging schedule with its own headline tours slotted between supports / tours with many acts including legendary Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan, Marillion, Wolfsbane, The Almighty, FM and Status Quo (during which the band played to its largest crowd, over 12,500 at the NEC Arena in Birmingham – where they drew a great response, great reviews and their set was also TV recorded).

The band’s live set at the Cumbria Rock Festival was recorded in full and broadcast on Radio One along with an interview on the infamous Radio One Rock Show – the live set was aired again 19 years later by Bruce Dickinson on the Iron Maiden vocalist’s BBC radio show! The band’s very first release came in 1991 on the compilation album ‘The Kingdom of Rock’ alongside Thunder, Little Angels, Almighty etc. The debut single – the ‘Sad Suzie’ EP soon followed, leading the way for the release of the critically acclaimed and now much sort after, self titled debut album.

Thanks to fan based internet sites and web forums, the band performed a special gig to mark its twenty-year anniversary in the summer of 2009. Since then the group have continued to play live, released two further studio albums and are currently in pre-production for a feature film based on the ‘Goodbye God’ album.
