Hey gang, we are going to get some new hoodies printed up and here is your chance to be the first, and most likely only, to own one.  These are high quality hoodies printed on metallic black (that black with the little grey flecks in it).  We are going to keep this link active for about a week, then we will print, and get them shipped out to you for free.  Price is $40, but that includes shipping, so you arent getting completly robbed here!  We will print a small number to keep on hand for shows, but hoodies are expensive and we usually only keep around 10 in stock and they will go fast!  Your best option is to pony up the money now and reserve one for yourself.  Follow this link to our store and go ahead and get whatever size you need!  Thanks guys Killigans-hoodie-back

The Cornhusker

September 17th, 2014

Hey Gang,
Did you know the Killigans recorded a version of the classic football song “The Cornhusker” by Robert W. Stevens?! Well, we did, and it’s sparking a lot of … conversation on-line. Some people like it. Some people hate it. Some people haven’t heard it yet. OMG! Internets!

well- You can go to Bandcamp and hear it and buy it for a buck!

Check it out now! Yay hooray! Then go onto some comments section of some webpage and tell people about it!

Facebook it to Bo Pelini!

Hey guys we are back in Lincoln at the Zoo Bar Saturday September 13th for an early show (6-9) also featuring Harley Graves. We have a boatload of fresh merch and all our old albums and all that as well. Please come down and hang with the band and get a good start to your Saturday night!

St Pats Promo Video

March 10th, 2014

Hey guys, check out this video we did for our upcoming 10th annual St Pats show in Lincoln!  Special thanks to Jared Staab for producing and directing this gem!





March 4th, 2014

On March 15th, the killigans will be celebrating St Patricks day in style.  This marks our 10th year doing this show, and our 10th year as a band.  We want to celebrate by offering one hell of a night.  Iron Brush Tattoo (Lincoln NE) is sponsoring the event with some great giveaways, DJ Dan DTOUR! will be keeping the night moving between sets with his vast array of punk rock.  We have Halfwit and Mezcal Brothers hopping on as well to help us tear up the stage.  As always, look for this to be our biggest local show of the year, complete with traditional covers, Pogues covers, free stuff, unneccessary props, singalongs and who the hell knows what else could happen.  I can say with a fair amount of certainty that there will be a limited edition shirt for sale at this show as well as a fresh restock of “Another Round for the Strong of Heart”.  Watch for a YOUTUBE commercial about the show later this week/weekend. 

If you want to RSVP to the show, please go here:!/events/557064907723467/

In other news, look for us in Grand Island at the Glass Bar on April 4th, and in Denver at 3 Kings Tavern on April 5th, more info TBA. 


Feel free to print out these handbills and stick them up all over town for us!!!

Make sure if you live in those areas that you grab all your friends and go to those shows. You don’t want to be the guy who says “oh yeah I had a chance to see them for $5 last year before they got all huge … but I stayed home and played Call of Duty all night instead” – DO YOU?

Well maybe you do. Either way here, in all it’s glory, is the latest video we’ve produced…  “Hey Sergio” off our latest album “Another Round for the Strong of Heart” – check it out.

let us know what you think. please comment on YouTube or tell us on Facebook or send us a telegram or something.
