Pop-Punk & Pizza #84: AJ Khah & Kyle Dee of Makeout

ELeft to Right: AJ Khah, Jacques LaMore, and Kyle Dee. Last month pop-punk phenoms, Makeout, announced two new members of the band. Oddly enough, both of them are from Chicago and have strong ties to the local scene. New lead vocalist/guitarist, Kyle Dee, is known for previous bands, The Frantic, and The Fall Four. AJ Khah, the new bassist, just left, Sleep On It, earlier this year. Kyle and AJ were kind enough to sit down with me a few weeks ago, have a few slices of Lou Malnati's, and talk about the exciting future of Makeout.
