Killola is an independent American alternative rock band from Los Angeles consisting of Lisa Rieffel (lead vocals), Dan Grody (drums) and Johnny Dunn (bass, guitar). The band's varied musical style is primarily 'Garage Pop' with punk and pop/electronica influences. Many of their songs make integrated use of layered vocal harmonies and synthesizers. The band possesses a notable DIY work ethic, and maintains a widespread, global fanbase thanks to multiple self-produced releases, free downloads and heavy internet presence.
The band was awarded "Best Use of Emerging Technologies, 2010" by the NYC-based music blog [http://weallmakemusic.com/end-of-year-awards-best-use-of-emerging-technologies-2010/ WAMM], alongside OK Go and Ben Folds.
Killola fans from all over the world submit photos of their band-related tattoos via the group's social networking sites. Tattooed fans are granted free-admission to shows, when the band is able to accommodate. Rieffel is also an actress, appearing in the 2014 feature musical Girltrash: All Night Long. She was also an original cast member of the The King of Queens.
