Playboy Playmate Kylie Johnson Loves As Blood Runs Black

Chalk up a metal chick for Hef!

Playboy mag's February 2011 Playmate Kylie Johnson, a California girl, cites As Blood Runs Black as one of her favorite bands in this month's issue, the band announced.

In her bio, she lists as her "musical passion": "Metalcore screamo bands like As Blood Runs Black and Miss May I never fail to thrill me."

She adds: "I’m very rock-and-roll, but I’m also very romantic. I’m always spreading the love–always! All I want to do is cuddle all day and convince you not to go to work the next morning. Let’s romance each other.”

The Los Angeles-based band, meanwhile, will release it's new album "Instinct" March 15 and is currently out on The Atticus Metal Tour with Darkest Hour, Born of Osiris and The Human Abstract.

Lech (drums) and Nick (bass) said: "We don't think anyone truly understands how much the odds were really against us. It felt like we were stuck in quicksand. The harder we tried to pull ourselves out, the further we sank. It came to a point where we felt alone and betrayed. It was like everybody around us wrote us off and everyone else expected us to give up. But in reality, it just fueled our drive to get this record done and to give our fans what they truly deserve and have so patiently waited for. That is essentially what this new album is about, overcoming obstacles and following your instincts.

“Right now is the calm before the storm. With Instinct about to be released, our schedule for 2011 is finally filling up fast. This year we're going to be focusing on playing shows worldwide. We can't express how amazing it feels to have Instinct finally completed. It's even better to know that we will be back out on the road once again playing shows and hanging out with all our old friends and making new ones along the way. This is looking to be an exciting year for us and we can't wait to get it started.

“Instinct has the same elements that made Allegiance unique, with new flavors and a fresh take on what's current in todays scene. Hit up our social sites now to get your hands on the limited pre-order options we have available as they are very limited. Thanks again to all of our fans for allowing us the opportunity to continue this band and further our legacy. We'll see you on the road!"
