King King have launched a new lyric video for latest single ‘Long Time Running’ taken from their forthcoming fourth studio album “Exile & Grace” released by Manhaton Records on Friday 13th October 2017. The band also welcome Jonny Dyke who replaces Bob Fridzema as King King’s official keyboard player. More information here.
The album coincides with King King’s biggest UK tour to date. Due to a throat condition with lead singer and guitarist Alan Nimmo, the band’s October 2017 UK tour dates have been re-scheduled to January 2018. All October 2017 tickets are valid for the rescheduled shows.
The rescheduled dates include London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire (Wednesday 17 January), Birmingham Town Hall (Thursday 18 January), Bath Forum (Saturday 20 January), Edinburgh Queen’s Hall (Friday 26 January), and Sheffield Leadmill(Saturday 27th January). Tickets are available via the 24 Hour Box Office: 0844 478 0898
“Exile & Grace” is King King’s first album of new material since 2015’s multi-award winning “Reaching For The Light.” The new album follows King King’s across-the-board win of five awards at 2016’s British Blues Awards including Best Male Vocal (Alan Nimmo), Best Bass Player (Lindsay Coulson), Best Song (Rush Hour), Best Album(Reaching for the Light) and Best Songwriter.
October 2016 saw the release of King King’s first live album “King King – Live” which shot to the No.1 spot in Amazon’s Best Sellers Blues Chart, backed by a string of sold out concerts. The new album “Exile & Grace” promises to deliver a bigger punch, with killer songs performed with true passion by a fist tight line-up. The album was recorded at Superfly Studios and mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Feeder and Therapy?).
Says King King’s frontman and guitarist, Alan Nimmo, “Exile & Grace” definitely has a rockier feel and sound to it. We are following our influences from the Classic Rock genre, Bad Company, Whitesnake and Thunder. We set out to challenge ourselves with this album. We’ve stepped up the quality of song writing and pushed ourselves physically in both performance and delivery!”
If this is your first time discovering King King, you’re in for a treat. They are simply the living, breathing, here and now of classic rock music.
