Molten Lava, the popular ’80s-flavored pop band out of Fayetteville, is no longer Molten Lava. They’ve changed their name to Boom Kinetic. In a press release, the band says that the name change follows a trademark filing by another band named Molten Lava. This band — the one that filed for the trademark — claims in a blog post on their MySpace page that a member of “bogus” Molten Lava — that’s the one based in Fayetteville; try and keep up — was a friend and fan of the “real” Molten Lava back in 1998, when they formed and released an album called “Hot Liquid Rock.” The 1998-vintage Molten Lava, which includes Isaac Alexander of the Easys and Big Silver fame, is currently at work on a follow-up. Boom Kinetic, too, plans to release an album in August, hopefully around the same time as another ’80s-flavored local act, Kyoto Boom.
