The King Blues tell ‘The Gospel Truth’ at The Garage

The King Blues have revealed details of their new album, ‘The Gospel Truth’.

The announcement coincides with the band’s current UK tour that stops off at The Garage in Highbury on 2 February.

Their first full-length LP since 2012, due for release on 14 April, is preceded by the single ‘Heart of A Lion’.

“It’s been a real collaborative effort with the fans sending in voice notes of their journey of the past year mixed in with my own experiences,” says frontman Jonny “Itch” Fox of the album recorded in London in 2016 with producer Mike Moore.

“This is the most vulnerable and honest we’ve ever been and I’m really proud of it.”

The King Blues, who mix ska punk with social commentary, began as a solo project with Fox (vocals and ukulele) recording their debut EP ‘All Fall Down’ by himself.

The London-based collective, gradually incorporating two acoustic guitarists, a bassist, and two percussion members, released four albums from 2006 until splitting in 2012.

They returned four years later with a new EP of their “rebel street music”.
