About Camo Kimono

Originally formed in 2019 under the name WCS, Camo Kimono is the brainchild of Paul J Doron (Guitar) and Matthew Tyler Di Leo (Vocals).

It wasn’t long before they evolved from jaded punks to alternative rock revolutionaries. Within their original run from 2019-2022, WCS released 3 singles. These singles “Show Me The Light”, “Tears In The Rain”, and “Melancholy” showcased incredibly personal, introspective lyrics overtop genre-shifting rock riffs. What sets Camo Kimono apart from other bands is their high-energy live shows combined with their vast genre-shifting song catalog.

After recording their 1st EP “World On Fire EP” in studio, WCS broke up in November 2022 due to ongoing tensions within the band. In 2023, Matthew Tyler Di Leo and Paul J Doron reformed and began looking for new members, who they found in Dylan Beneteau (Drums) and “Nicky Ace” (Bass).

Shortly after assembling a full lineup, they renamed it under the banner of “Camo Kimono”. This new name reflected the band’s blend of aggressive punk and elegant alternative rock. Combining elements of Punk Rock, J-Rock, Alternative Rock, and Britpop, Camo Kimono is the best band you’ve never heard of.
