The new single follow’s 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 even more of a punch, with killer songs performed with true passion by a fist tight line-up. The album was recorded at Superfly Studios. The first single from the album was 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 really set out to challenge ourselves with this album. We’ve stepped up the quality of songwriting 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.

Since their live debut shook the Monaghan Blues Festival in 2010, King King have woven their magic across continents, hauling in a raft of fans, plaudits and awards along the way.

King King are no run-of-the-mill band. This four piece is a tight ship, technically brilliant wonderfully entertaining - a band that really engages with their audience and cares about their fans.

Drummer Wayne Proctor and bassist Lindsay Coulson provide a strong rhythm section which is enhanced by the dazzling fingers of Bob Fridzema on Hammond organ and keyboards. Heading the fist-tight line up, is virtuoso frontman Alan Nimmo whose vocals and full - blooded guitar playing mark King King as one of the most exciting rock/blues bands ever - both live and on record.

King King's 2011 debut album “Take My Hand” was crowned Blues Album of the month in Classic Rock. Following this success, King King's next album “Standing in The Shadows” was the highlight of Classic Rock Blues magazine's Top 50 Albums of 2013. It's no surprise then that King King won Best Album and Best Band at the 2012 and the 2014 British Blues Awards.

2015 saw the band fly even higher with the release of their “Reaching For The Light” album. King King were nominated for Best New Band at Classic Rock's prestigious Roll of Honour and inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame for three consecutive Band wins.

King King have played in all corners of the globe. From the Mahindra Festival in Mumbai, India, to Ottawa Bluesfest in Canada, and numerous festivals throughout the whole of Europe. One of the highlights of 2016 was a UK arena tour with the mighty Thunder, which included playing to over 10,000 people at Wembley Arena and a sell-out headline show on home turf in Glasgow.

Their headlining tour in 2017 took them to mainland Europe and the UK. The band are back with a vengeance in October 2017 to perform songs from their new album “Exile & Grace.”
King King are widely recognised as the UK’s hottest rock blues band, the band continue to push the envelope by performing unforgettable live shows with first class musicianship.
