    cKy return to the music scene with the release of their new single "The Afterworld." The song, which builds upon the band's signature sound, is also used during the closing credits of Paramount Pictures/MTV Films Jackass 3D opening nationwide on October 15th. The track will also be featured on the Jackass 3D soundtrack, which will be released on October 26th via Epitaph Records. The single is also currently available digitally via iTunes with fans who have downloaded the track raving, "another top notch track from cKy" and "something new and refreshing."

    cKy take their sound to a whole new level on "The Afterworld." The song punches at all the right points with a searing lead line and one of the best hooks that the bend has ever committed to tape. It's a trippy, dark hard rock anthem that needs to be played louder than hell. This is bound to go down as a new classic for the band. The band—Deron Miller (Vocals/Guitar), Jess Margera (Drums), Chad Ginsburg (Guitar/Vocals), Matt Janaitis (Bass)—are back with a vengeance and better than ever.

    After playing at Sonisphere and touring across Australia and New Zealand, cKy has an intensive tour lined up for their North American fans. The band will hit the road on October 29 starting off in New Jersey and will wrap up on November 13 in Maryland with stops in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio to name a few along the way. The band has been known for their impressive live performances and onstage antics with Space Ship News commenting, "Guitarist, Chad I Ginsburg, proved to be highly energetic, to say the least. He was clearly there to entertain, jumping off the stage, posing for photos, and bitch-tossing his guitar to the delight of the crowd."

    The origins of cKy trace all the way back to 1992 when Jess and Deron met in High School and decided to begin writing music together. The band has gone through various names and line-ups before settling on the current version with one clear mission statement. According to the band "cKy’s goal is clear: To force change within the music industry and bring rock back to an acceptable state."
