Born to Death

Alternative band Karen Caskets was born during the pandemic in Portland, OR when two solo indie-rock musicians decided to turn up the fuzz and form a louder-than-heck grunge band. Carl Caskets and Kitty Caskets (later joined by Shag Caskets on drums and Shreddie Caskets on bass) created the mythology of Karen Caskets–legendary mortician and embalmer who directed her own funeral... from the grave. They released their first full-length record Gravitron in 2022 and EP No Room in 2023.
