"Gravity Kills" was an American industrial rock band from St. Louis, Missouri.
The band was formed in 1994. They had their first hit single with "Guilty" off of their album ''Gravity Kills''. Appearances on the soundtracks for ''Mortal Kombat'' ("Goodbye") and ''Seven'' also helped bring exposure. However, they were often thought of by both the public and the media as a mere imitation of Nine Inch Nails. Their only other successful singles afterwards were "Falling", off of ''Perversion'' and "One Thing", from ''Superstarved'', though both were only minor successes. Following a severe injury to keyboardist Doug Firley's hands, and lack of tour support from their record label, they were unable to complete a tour for ''Superstarved'' and broke up in 2002. On October 28, 2005, Gravity Kills reunited to perform for a self created Halloween music festival in St. Louis, Missouri entitled "The Killoween Freakshow". This festival has now become an annual event with "Killoween II" now scheduled for Saturday, October 28th, 2006.
