King King are headed out on a nationwide UK tour in November with Broken Witt Rebels in tow.
The trek culminates in a show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall on 29 November 2016.
“We’re determined to take King King to new heights,” says frontman Alan Nimmo. “We enjoy winning over new fans who’ve discovered us for the very first time.
“We’re also excited to have Broken Witt Rebels supporting us on our November tour, as they are a fine example of how a young rock group can connect to their rock and blues influences and still make it sound fresh and exciting.”
King King, whose 2015 album ‘Reaching For The Light’ has spawned the singles ‘Crazy’, ‘Hurricane’, and ‘Rush Hour’, kicked off 2016 supporting Thunder on a national arena tour that included a stop at Wembley Arena.
Coinciding with the November shows, Nimmo, Lindsay Coulson (bass), Wayne Proctor (drums), and Bob Fridzema (keyboards) are releasing a live album including the full audio from a concert in Glasgow, plus a DVD filmed at a sold-out show at the Holmfirth Picturedrome in West Yorkshire.
Birmingham’s Broken Witt Rebels – James Tranter (guitar), Danny Core(vocals), Luke Davis (bass) and James Dudley (drums) – are currently riding the success of their latest release, ‘Georgia Pine’.
Produced by Robert Plant collaborator Tom Gittins, the new EP features the singles ‘Low’ and ‘Guns’. The latter, a tribute to their hometown, was selected by the band’s fans and its official video has been viewed close on 500 000 YouTube views.
