Matteo Vallicelli is an Italian drummer and composer, best known as the live drummer of The Soft Moon, Death Index, and as a founding member of many renowned Italian punk bands. In 2013, Vallicelli relocated from the ancient neighborhood of Trastevere in Rome to the ever-changing Kreuzberg district in Berlin. This dramatic uprooting acted as a catalyst, inspiring him to try and make music on his own. Heavily influenced by the pulsating techno scene of the German capital, Vallicelli began experimenting with synthesizers and drum machines. Recording sounds onto his computer and cassette tapes led him to create a massive collection of loops and samples, sometimes in protracted home sessions where he wouldn’t leave his apartment for days. For Vallicelli, the transition from playing drums in punk bands to sitting alone in his home studio, working on minimalistic electronic compositions, has dramatically shifted his music career. He says, “Being in charge of everything can be disorienting. Having no other band members to work or fight with… I would end up with hours and hours of music that I was never content with, having the possibility to endlessly edit all the parts on my computer. It took me almost three years to learn how to limit myself, to finish up a project and move on to something else. But as soon as I mastered that, I was able to assemble my first album in something like four weeks.”

Kill Your Boyfriend is violence turned into noise.
Kill Your Boyfriend is a psychedelic trip about past, present and future.
Kill Your Boyfriend is a black fake religion.

Kill Your Boyfriend is a two-piece band formed in 2011, Matteo Scarpa on guitar and vocals, and Antonio Angeli on drums.
After having hot performed more than 80 gigs in top clubs and festivals, both in Italy and abroad, with The KVB, Zù, Zola Jesus, Civil Civic and others, the band published their last release “Ghosts”, the natural progression from their previous opus “The King Is Dead”. “Ghosts” is a record obsessed with regrets and empty spaces.
