Audio Karate is a pop-punk band from Rosemead, California.
Audio Karate signed to Kung-Fu Records in fall 2001. They put out their debut album, Space Camp, on May 14, 2002. The album featured the hits "Nintendo 89," "Rosemead," and "Senior Year." After the release of Space Camp, Audio Karate toured the world with bands such The Ataris, NOFX, blink-182 and other bands.
After the heavy touring, the band decided to take a break to write their next record. The result was an album named Lady Melody that was produced by Bill Stevenson of The Descendents. Lady Melody was released on June 1, 2004 on Kung Fu Records. Lady Melody is considered a much darker and angier record than Space Camp. After the release of the record the band began to tour non-stop in support of it. In 2005 a rumor had spread that the band had broken up, but was later proven to be false. As of 2006 the band is working on a follow-up album to Lady Melody.
Recently, Jason Camacho built a studio, Lady Melody Recordings. It is expected that it will be the place where Audio Karate will be recording the new albu...
