THE TOUR DOVETAILS KING KING’S NEW SINGLE

King King are pleased to announce a raft of new UK tour dates in April and May 2017.  The tour kicks off on Thursday 20th April at The Cube in Corby, Northants. All tickets are priced £20, are on sale to the general public on Monday 12th December from www.thegigcartel.com and the 24 Hour Box Office: 0844 478 0898
The tour dovetails the release of a brand new single taken from King King’s upcoming fourth studio album, and follow up to 2015’s multi-award winning Reaching For The Light. The new album is scheduled for release in early September 2017.


King King’s first-ever live album "King King - Live" was recently voted #1 at Blues Rock Review's "Top 5 Best Live Albums of 2016 Poll".
The live album triumph follows King King’s recent win of five awards at the 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 hit the No.1 spot in Amazon’s Best Sellers Blues Chart.


Says King King’s frontman, Alan Nimmo, "We’re really excited to perform the new single live. It’s rockier than our previous material, but it still has an inherent King King sound to it. The new single is a nice taster from the upcoming album."
Having scored three radio hit singles on Planet Rock radio with the songs CrazyHurricane, and Rush Hour, the band recently went to Planet Rock’s studios to perform three acoustic tracks that will be aired on the station in early 2017.

In 2015, King King received a nomination for Best New Band at the 2015 Classic Rock Awards, and followed up with a UK arena tour supporting Thunder that was highlighted at a packed concert at London’s Wembley Arena, and, as a result, won them over a raft of new fans. 
The band’s 2015 album, Reaching For The Light, was voted #1 album by Blues Rock Review.  In 2014, King King won a total of five 2014 British Blues Awards, including Best Album and Best Band. The nods came from BBC Radio 2 presenter Paul Jones to Classic Rock’s The Blues magazine. Their support slot on John Mayall’s 2014 UK tour pushed the band to another level.

In 2014, King King’s second album Standing in the Shadows, firmly established them as a formidable force on the British Blues scene.  They still retain that accolade today with a growing legions of fans.
King King features Alan Nimmo (vocals, guitar), Lindsay Coulson (bass), Wayne Proctor (drums) and Bob Fridzema (keyboards).  The band are widely recognized as the UK’s hottest rock blues band. They continue to push the envelope by providing their fans with the best live experience and musicianship.
