KING OF THE NORTH will be dropping their highly anticipated album ‘SOUND THE UNDERGROUND’ on March 14


Sound The Underground is the debut album from independent Melbourne based rock two-piece King Of The North. ‘Wanted’ the first single from the album will be featured internationally in the brand new BMW 2 series commercial. BMW say that ‘Wanted’ gives their new series a fresh and exciting feel, “the power of two” as they say in the clip, works both ways. The 2014 campaign will be airing in cinemas and online in February, TV and Radio in March. ‘Wanted’ is set for digital release on 31st Jan 2014 and the official film clip will soon follow.

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.

The album was 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…

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!” – 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. The tour will run through March till June. 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.
