Written about a subject very close the Liv and the band’s heart, ‘King of the Damned’ is call for the world to wake and see the beauty we are destroying every day. Proceeds from the single sales via Liv Sin’s Bandcamp page will be donated to Swedish animal rights organisation Djurens rätt.
Liv Sin’s new song “King of the Damned” is a call to action for the public to do something about the extinction of the world’s wildlife. The band has chosen to work with the Swedish animal rights organisation “Djurens Rätt” during the single campaign.
Singer Liv Jagrell got the inspiration for the lyrics to “King of the Damned” from Nick Brandts picture of Cecil the Lion from the exhibition “Inherit the Dust”, a photo exhibition where Brandt revisited places where he used to take pictures of the wildlife that shows how these landscapes have now turned into wastelands filled with piles of garbage.
“This is extremely depressing and not flattering for mankind. Unfortunately this is the way we are heading if we do nothing. Remember “Lion King”? Well, soon there is not going to be any “King of the Jungle” left. The few lions left will become the “King of the Damned” instead.”// Liv Sin 2017

About Liv Sin:
From the gutters of southern Sweden, Liv Jagrell emerged as the major force and vocalist of the hard rock band SISTER SIN. Throughout their 13-year career, SISTER SIN sold thousands of records and toured the world with high-profile tours supporting the likes of SLAYER and KING DIAMOND on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. SISTER SIN toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.
When SISTER SIN called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to offer the world and her fans. From this, LIV SIN was born in the spring of 2017.
With barely enough time to scrape off the Donington muck, the Metal Hammer Golden Gods award ceremony kicks off at the Indigo O2 venue in London. It’s less than 24 hours after Kiss and Suicidal Tendencies wrapped up their festival-closing sets at Download, and the scheduling of this awards ceremony soon becomes obvious as a slew of familiar faces from the past three days begin to grace the cosy amphitheatre.
I know that true collectors will still hold out hope for perhaps getting their hands on an original pressing of this great album Psychos R Us, but this is the perfect way to tide yourself over until that happens
