King Of the North have just returned for the U.S.A and are on a major roll with their new single 'Wanted'. The track has been picked up by BMW as the
soundtrack for the all new BMW Series Coupe hi rotation advertising campaign running nationally now.
Triple M are playing 'Wanted' in nights and featured 'Sound The Underground' as Album of the week this week.
There is no stopping this juggernaut duo with new dates have been added to their three month tour (see below) and an invitation to support 'Monster Magnet'
on their national tour.
This Melbourne based two-piece duo, King Of The North is 2014 rock on a mission, and make no mistake; this is a rock record! ‘Wanted’ is merely the tip of the
iceberg when it comes to rock anthems on this album. ‘Surrender’, ‘Ruby’, ‘Watch It Die’, and the opening belter “It’s Been Too Long’ have all the ingredients a
great rock song should, big grooves, catchy riffs and more hooks than a tackle box.
Recorded in Melbourne at Hothouse Audio in St Kilda. ‘Sound The Underground’ captures exactly that, an underground rock band doing what they want, how
they want. The self produced 12 tracker encompasses the best of their high energy rock anthems while still capturing the feel and power that KOTN’s live
shows are known for. The “old-school” approach was taken to recording. Playing everything live in one room together and capturing the sound via the Vintage
Neve desk that has recorded AC/DC, Midnight Oil, Oasis, The Living End and many more.
What The Media Is Saying…
“These guys are good, very good. This is high energy stuff, relentless. Loud, loaded and landed.” -
John Snelson – Get Shot Magazine rated the album 4/5
“ Great from start to finish and such a densely layered sound, it’s hard to believe it’s just two people.” – Classic Rock Mag (UK)
“If you are not familiar with King Of The North, it won’t be long before you are, they are going to shake the foundations of Australian rock and beyond!” – veri.live Mag
What The Industry is saying…
“No Prisoners taken riff-a-rama, this album is tough!” – John Scott (The Mark Of Cain)
“Album of the year” –Tony Jack the bear Mantz (Deluxe mastering)
“Fucking great! Massive sound!” – Jimmy Barnes (Cold Chisel)
“They are seriously good!” Bob Spencer (Skyhooks / The Angels)
“Best thing I’ve heard in ages, Danny Leo is god.” Lucius Borich (Cog)
Australia will have the chance to see one of it’s best live bands in years when KOTN hit the road for the ‘Sound The Underground’ national tour. Leaving no stone unturned on this 30+ date tour. KOTN will be hitting every area of the country possible doing what they’ve done so well, playing live and winning new fans.
The unchanged line up of Andrew Higgs (Guitar/ Vocals) and Danny Leo (Drums/ Backing Vocals) will head the two man army many regard as sounding like five or more.
