Kyng are pleased to announce they will be heading to the UK for the Metal Hammer ‘Lords Of The Riff 2’ tour this November. Kyng will be playing alongside Lionize and Anti-Mortem for a full regional UK tour.
The band recently released their latest album ‘Burn The Serum,’ the bands second full-length album and first for Razor & Tie. The band harks back to the essence of heavy rock ‘n’ roll, forging thunderous percussion to lightning hot riffs driven by a divine vocal howl. At the same time, they keep their eyes wide open towards the future. Kyng find grandiosity in simplicity. The Los Angeles outfit may only boast three members—Eddie Veliz [vocals/guitar], Pepe Clarke [drums], and Tony Castaneda [bass/backup vocals]—but their collective roar could easily tip the Southern California Richter Scale.
“In the beginning, Kyng was just a name,” says singer Eddie Veliz. “Now, it’s about honesty in music though. We try to be honest with ourselves so people want to listen to us for a long time to come. We want to take you back to an older era when bands didn’t need all of the bells and whistles. At the same time, we’re taking you down our own path to that place.”
Burn The Serum was produced by Andrew Alekel (Foo Fighters, No Doubt, Queens of The Stone Age, Clutch) and James A. Rota (Sound City) and was recorded at Grandmaster Recorders LTD and Sword & Shield in Hollywood, CA as well as at Studio 606 in Northridge, CA.
Kyng’s Eddie Veliz explains the song, “Burn The Serum is one of the best songs that the guys and I have written so far. It’s extremely honest in the subject matter and the riff.”
Formed in 2008, Kyng broke out of the City of Angels in 2011 with the group’s independent debut Trampled Sun. The album landed shining critical acclaim for its “California Heavy” sound merging the metallic meanderings of Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age with the timeless scope of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. They hit the road with everybody from The Sword and Clutch to Trivium and Megadeth—even being picked to play at Metallica’s first-ever Orion Music + More festival. Loudwire raved, “a hard hitting fusion of rocking goodness,” and Ultimate-Guitar added, “if they keep churning out records as good as Trampled Sun, they will be mentioned right up there with Mastodon and the like.”
