AUSTRALIAN RIFF HEAVY QUINTET PREMIERE NEW MUSIC VIDEO ‘NO CHANCE IN HELL’ AHEAD OF EUROPEAN TOUR THIS OCTOBER
“Palace Of The King is literally like a huge ground shaking Palace of RIFFS, SOUL and Rock’n’Roll. They guarantee to tangle you up, reel you in and blow you away with their unique six-stringing, soul singing, sexy stomping Rock’n’Roll! They are the real deal” – Joel O’ Keeffe (Airbourne)
Steeped in bluesy swagger and riff-heavy psychedelia, this is rock and roll that leaves a trail of denim-clad soldiers and converted non-believers in its wake.
In 2015, it’s time for the White Bird to take flight. From three minute funk-infused rockers through to seven minute Sabbath-esque crushers, Palace Of The King has seized the opportunity to explore every intricate corner of their influences and craft a debut album that captures a band at a point where ‘scratching the surface’ isn’t nearly enough. Standby for an album that tears apart the 100-year history of the blues, adds a distinctly modern edge and smothers a ‘no holds barred’ attitude across 44 minutes worth of riff-a-minute, hook-laden rock and roll.
The ‘freight train’ metaphor may be overused and stale. But you’d be hard-pressed to find one that is better-suited to a band that has played over 200 shows and released a mountain of music at such a prolific rate, all within two years of striking their first chord as a band.
Turn it on, turn it up and strap yourself in for the ride. White Bird/Burn The Sky is about to launch stratospheric.
The all-new 10 track album ‘White Bird/Burn The Sky’ is out now via Listenable Records (A.D.A/Warner).
Formed in late 2012, Palace Of The King – nameless at that point – quickly recorded a three-track demo and developed the vision of a six-piece blues-infused rock and roll band. Far from a grave-robbing retro trip, Palace Of The King has just as much in common with Rival Sons, Graveyard and Jack White as they do Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.
