KING 810 Inks Deal With Roadrunner RecordsMonday, 12th May 2014
Flint, Michigan’s KING 810 has inked a deal with Roadrunner Records. The band’s Proem EP is currently streaming in its entirety on RoadrunnerRecords.com and you can stream and download the track “Fat Around The Heart” now at KING810.com.
Proem will be made available on iTunes on May 13. This collection preludes the band’s full-length debut slated for later this summer.
Flint, the forgotten city, is where KING 810 calls home and it’s the dystopian dwelling that sets the backdrop for the Proem. With no mayor to preside over the bereft community and a minuscule police force, Flint teaches its young to fend for themselves.
Proem is an embodiment of KING 810’s life within this pressure cooker, a glimpse into the personal account of this disappearing metropolis where tree branches live longer than the children do. The EP traces the band’s Midwest survival, stirred by frontman David Gunn’s examination of his own existence and the dying kingdom around him.
KING 810 is set to debut new material at Columbus, Ohio’s Rock On The Range on May 17, followed by a performance at the Download festival in the U.K. on June 15. KING 810 will then traverse the U.S. on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and release its Roadrunner debut album this August.
