MKB ULTRA's self-titled first album (2016) feature songs responding to romantic betrayal (Fire Sign), student debt (That Was Then and This is Now), an anthem for mutiny (Black Ship), an epic fairly tale about a psychedelic epiphany on the battle field (Strange Attractors) among others-- mingled together with a defiant sense of optimism all expressed through relentless grooves and guitar riffs.

The second album, Folk Medicine (2019) evolved with a tight rhythm section (featuring Patrick Lenon (drums) and 5-Track (bass). The songs are short, rhythmically driven and intent on burning away destructive thought patterns and searching for self knowledge.

The band is currently working on their next album and will be playing shows in the spring.
