“What’s not possible... is you being able to resist the hook-laden guitar rock that System and Station lays down.” - Portland Mercury

2009 marks System and Station's tenth year as a touring band. It’s latest release, to be followed by a fifth full-length in early 2010, shows off a broader musical palette for the band, yet maintains its core sound of angular, melodic, and soaring rock and roll. Following a recent performance with Sunny Day Real Estate at Musicfest Northwest, System and Station launches a three-week tour today in support of I’m Here To Kill.

“Now here is a record that’s so refreshingly professional it’ll make you realize how truly amateurish most indie releases are.” - Detroit Metro Times

This short-playing EP is lyrically based on the true story of a woman living in the Pacific Northwest, her struggle with abusive relationships and the loss of her child at the hands of her then husband. System and Station leader, RFK Heise, explains, “The title I’m Here To Kill comes from the stories she told me of revenge. Waking up next to her husband, watching him sleep and thinking ‘I love you but I’m going to kill you.’”
