The four piece metalcore band Kublai Khan was founded in summer 2009. In this scene, bogged down with mindless music and meaningless lyrics, the band is making its mark across North America. Combining traditional metalcore music roots with the new sounds of underground hardcore, Kublai Khan is working for something new. With hopes of continuing to play music every day to all open ears.
Being entirely DIY since the beginning, Kublai Khan released an 8 song EP titled Youth War in January 2011. Through numerous regional and national tours reaching from Washington state to Florida, the band has sold over 1200 copies of the self-released album.
